A Wave of Tsunami Research

Just days after a tsunami struck American Samoa on September 29, USGS scientists rushed to the scene. This rapid-response tsunami research on water levels and sediment in American Samoa is essential to tsunami preparation and education. The research contributes to tsunami models, which are used in planning evacuation routes and construction. If the researchers had waited any longer, much of the data they were collecting would have disappeared with recovery activities and natural processes. Hear more about USGS tsunami research in USGS CoreCast Episode 110 at http://www.usgs.gov/corecast/details.asp?ep=110. For more information, check out the USGS Newsroom at http://www.usgs.gov/newsroom/article.asp?ID=2348, or contact Bruce Jaffe at bjaffe@usgs.gov or (831) 427-4742.

Research Takes Flight on Seabirds

From the cold Arctic of Alaska to the tropical Pacific of Hawai`i, USGS scientists are actively studying a diverse array of seabird species. Seabirds, which are sensitive indicators of marine ecosystems, face a number of threats, such as oil spills, introduction of predators, and conflicts with fisheries, requiring increased levels of scientific information and management. On-going studies in Alaska involve the Kittlitz's Murrelet, a candidate species under the Endangered Species Act, and the Marbled Murrelet, presently listed as 'Threatened.' In the San Francisco Bay Estuary, scientists are investigating the effects of mercury contamination on terns and cormorants. Other studies involve the negative effects on Forster's Terns due to the conversion of several thousand acres of salt ponds into tidal marsh habitat
