e textiles were produced en masse or Andrew Carnegie perfected steel manufacturing, this ancient group of Native Americans was manufacturing and trading salt. New research from the USGS reveals that hundreds of man-made basins three to four feet in diameter were carved into solid granite and cover an area the size of a football field in the Sierra Nevada. These basins were filled with water from a nearby salt spring. When the water evaporated in the hot summer months, a salt residue that could be harvested was left at the bottom. They could manufacture three tons of salt each season, giving them more than enough for use within their own community and a surplus for trade. For details go to the USGS Newsroom at http://www.usgs.gov/newsroom/article.asp?ID=2353 or check out the full report at http://pubs.usgs.gov/sir/2009/5225/.

Unmanned Aircraft Flying High

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) technology can go where no scientist has ever gone before. Using these remote controlled planes, USGS scientists will be able to research the most remote and dangerous areas, such as polar regions, volcanic islands and expansive deserts. Manned aircraft flights are rarely possible in these areas due to long flight times and hazardous weather conditions. The USGS has long been known as an authoritative source of aerial photography and satellite-based imagery. This technology, developed by the U.S. Army, will allow the USGS to understand landscape change and conduct wildlife inventories with a level of detail and precision never before attainable. Details can be found in the USGS Newsroom at http://www.usgs.gov/newsroom/article.asp?ID=1931. For more information contact Heidi
