An Eruption of Volcano Monitoring Improvements

Volcanoes can be catastrophic. Lava flows and debris avalanches can choke major riverways, destroy bridges and devastate natural areas. Scientists from the USGS work with partners around the world to actively monitor the world's volcanoes. They use seismometers to detect and monitor very small earthquakes that indicate that magma is rising. They also use GPS to detect changes in the size of the volcano. The USGS has allocated over $7 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds to 15 universities and state agencies nationwide to modernize the equipment in volcano monitoring networks and produce high-resolution maps of high-threat volcanoes. For more information on volcano monitoring, visit the USGS Volcano Hazards Program Web site at http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/. For more information on these recovery funds, visit the USGS Newsroom at http://www.usgs.gov/newsroom/article.asp?ID=2357. For details on these improvements, contact John Eichelberger at jeichelberger@usgs.gov or (703) 648-6711.

The King of the North Pole: Brutus the Wolf

Thanks to a GPS/satellite collar worn by a wolf named Brutus, scientists can finally find out what arctic wolves do during the winter. For a long time, scientists could only study these wolves during a few months out of the year, because the winter is too harsh for scientists to stay. There is 24 hours of darkness, and temperatures can fall to negative 70 degrees Fahrenheit. The GPS/satellite collar makes it possible for Brutus to email information about his pack right to the offices of USGS scientists. You can follow Brutus and his pack at http://internationalwolfcenter.blogspot.com/. Will the
