Using TLS and Structure from Motion (SfM) Photogrammetry in Undergraduate Field Education; Cardwell, Montana, 16–19 August 2016
Boulders Limit Transport of Sand and Gravel in Steep Rivers
Mountain rivers and streams actively reshape landscapes by eroding material from uplands and depositing it in lowlands. Scientists can now predict this transport in very steep streams.
Scientists Spend Arctic Winter Adrift on Sea Ice
A hovercraft-based ice drift station gives researchers access to previously inaccessible regions of the changing Arctic sea ice cover off the coast of Greenland.
The 2015 Indonesian Fires: Less Carbon Release Than Was Thought
Preliminary results from field measurements of smoldering Kalimantan peatlands suggest that the fires emitted 8% less carbon dioxide and 55% less methane than were previously estimated from lab tests.
Visiting the Volcano
Workshops on Volcanoes; Santiaguito, Guatemala, 4–12 January 2016
Into the Belly of a Glacier
Ice caving started as a weekend hobby but has now blossomed into a portion of graduate student Kiya Riverman's Ph.D. research.
What Are Scientists Doing off the Oregon Coast in Winter?
Social media and the value of communicating field experiences to the public
Recent Studies Crack Open New Views of Glacial Crevasses
Scientists review 60 years of direct and remote observations of crevasses and the models used to simulate them.
Embracing Open Data in Field-Driven Sciences
Allowing data to be reused and research results to be replicated fosters innovation, high-quality research, and public trust in science.
Arctic Research on Thin Ice: Consequences of Arctic Sea Ice Loss
Scientists embarked on a 6-month expedition in the Arctic Ocean to study the thinning sea ice cover, improve our understanding of sea ice loss effects, and help predict future changes.
