  • Satellite measurements show hidden water content of snow

    As spring arrives, many people are generally interested in the snow vanishing. Others are more interested in the water that is stored in the snow layer. Satellite measurements can show the extent and water content of the snow coverage, and where it will melt. Scientists from SMHI are part of a European research project aiming to develop new, simpler ways of using satellite data about snow and ...

  • NASA Opens New Era In Measuring Western U.S. Snowpack

    A new NASA airborne mission has created the first maps of the entire snowpack of two major mountain watersheds in California and Colorado, producing the most accurate measurements to date of how much water they hold. The data from NASA's Airborne Snow Observatory mission will be used to estimate how much water will flow out of the basins when the snow melts. The data-gathering technology could ...

  • Groundwater monitoring: what’s winter field work like?

    Although the stimulation phase of the Newberry EGS Demonstration has come to a close, field work continues throughout the winter months on the volcano (brrr!). We’re currently collecting and analyzing groundwater samples in order to monitor any changes in the local groundwater system. This work is intended to make sure thestimulation hasn’t affected the quality of the groundwater high ...

  • EPA urges residents of Joplin, Mo., to keep Tornado debris segregated into categories as curbside pickup continues

    As the process of recovering from the May 22 tornado nears the end of its eighth week, EPA Region 7 is urging residents and cleanup crews to keep residential storm debris segregated into six categories to speed curbside collection efforts. Under one of its emergency response missions assigned by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), EPA and its contractors are continuing to collect ...

  • Sooty Himalayan snow `warms climate, alters monsoons`

    Black carbon landing on snow may be accelerating the melting of Himalayan glaciers more than atmospheric soot or even greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide (CO2), according to a study. The effects of this carbon, a key component of soot, could change the timing and intensity of the monsoons; increase the ...
