A 2017 executive order mandated a plan to evaluate U.S. access to critical mineral resources, but the airborne magnetic survey maps that support this effort are sadly out of date.
High-resolution lidar topography reveals a long history of ancient earthquakes.
His vision and persistence created a 1.4-billion-pixel map of the Gulf of Mexico seafloor—a crucial tool in research on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and a completely new standard for bathymetry maps.
The Surface Water and Ocean Topography mission will begin by scanning Earth’s surface once a day. We invite ocean scientists to contribute ground-based measurements to compare with the satellite data.
The distributed deformation of buried materials is difficult to map, but a new approach is able to resolve vertical deformation over the length of a fiber optic cable.
BepiColombo may launch as early as this weekend. It seeks to unravel the mysteries of Mercury’s geologic and magnetic past and map the small planet’s cratered surface.
Jungle-piercing lidar surveys over ancient Maya sites give scientists the most extensive maps of lowland Maya civilization to date.
More GPS stations, faster data delivery, and better data processing provide an abundance of information for all kinds of Earth scientists.
