Dying Bats in the Northeast Remain a Mystery

Investigations continue into the cause of a mysterious illness that has resulted in the deaths of thousands of bats since March 2008. At more than 25 caves and mines in the northeastern United States, bats exhibiting a condition now referred to as "white-nosed syndrome" have been dying. The USGS recently issued a Wildlife Health Bulletin, advising wildlife and conservation officials throughout the United States to be on the lookout for the condition and report suspected cases of the disease. You can listen to a podcast interview with two USGS scientists speaking about this syndrome in bats at http://www.usgs.gov/corecast/details.asp?ID=77.

Boldly Going Where No Man (or Woman) Goes: USGS Unmanned Aircraft

In dangerous and remote areas such as polar regions, volcanic islands, and expansive deserts remote-controlled unmanned aircraft can provide more detailed, more timely data about the status of natural resources and environmental conditions than would be feasible by any other means. That is why the USGS is establishing a new program for earth observation using unmanned aircraft systems. In many cases, this technology is simply the most cost effective way to gather earth observation data for a wide variety of applications: managing federal lands, investigating climate change, mapping and charting, conducting environmental risk assessments, and responding to and recovering from natural and human-induced disasters. Working in partnership with many other federal agencies, academic institutions and industry groups, the
