In our June issue of Eos, we home in on the unique ways researchers are using maps to better understand Earth and beyond.
New, detailed surveys from the Beaufort Sea reveal a seafloor depression the size of a city block associated with permafrost thaw and likely influenced by the movement of groundwater below.
The unsafe contaminant levels could not be attributed to differences in regional geology, water source, or community size. Researchers suggest they are due to a failure of regulatory policy.
Digital hydrographic maps have transformed global environmental studies and resource management. A major database update will provide even clearer and more complete views of Earth’s waterways.
Changes including intensifying drought, expansion into burnable land, and an increase in human-caused ignitions have led to a shift in fire patterns.
Un nuevo proyecto con tecnología lidar revela cómo la minería y la expansión urbana han puesto en riesgo a uno de los sitios del patrimonio cultural más icónicos de México.
Climate change, shifting populations, and infrastructure development in risky areas compound future flood loss risk.
Telecom fiber repurposed as distributed acoustic sensing arrays can image near-surface structure and potentially improve seismic hazard mapping in urban areas.
A recent expedition mapped one of the world’s longest submarine channels, revealing previously undiscovered physical features and raising questions about its unusual origin and shape.
A new lidar project reveals how mining and urban expansion have put one of Mexico’s most iconic cultural heritage sites at risk.
