It's been awhile and i just received notification of a new member ThomasMoran, welcome aboard...Guess I will start this day with a new message from USGS whose site i love. They have some great projects that have been undertaken- here is one for today.
On October 1, 2010, the USGS is realigning its organizational structure around the themes identified in the USGS Science Strategy. One of these new themes, or mission areas, is "Natural Hazards". This mission area brings together the following existing Bureau programs and the attachment shows various things occuring around the country. check it out it is a great place to visit.. I am particulary interested in Yellowstone, with a caldaera 50 miles wide, i think we all should be interested.. along with the various volcanic activity now being seen and felt around the world. :
Every year in the United States, natural hazards cost lives and billions of dollars in damage. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) provides policymakers and the public with a clear understanding of natural hazards and their potential threats to society, and assists with developing smart, cost-effective strategies for achieving preparedness and resilience. See "Natural Hazards—A National Threat" Fact Sheet.
