A Whirlwind Of Activity -- USGS Responds To Hurricanes
Before, during, and after the storm, the U.S.Geological Survey helps people in hurricane-prone areas by providing detailed maps of the affected areas to rescue and recovery workers, by tracking floods, and by documenting coastal erosion. (1998-08-26)

Gender And Age Differences Found In Clotting Mechanism Of Sudden Cardiac Death
Blood clots that can trigger a sudden heart attack often differ between men and premenopausal women -- a finding that may have important implications for preventing sudden cardiac death, which kills 250,000 people each year. This research was reported in a study in today's Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association. (1998-04-27)

USGS Says Central Columbia Plateau Water Quality Impaired by Agriculture, But Some Good News
Water quality in the Central Columbia Plateau of eastern Washington and western Idaho has been adversely affected by agriculture, especially in irrigated areas, according to the results of a five-year investigation by the U. S. Geological Survey (USGS). Some improvements, however, are noticeable, such as less sediment being washed into streams. (1998-04-22)

Federal Agencies Join Forces To Assess El Nino Impacts
Properly assessing the impacts of powerful storms associated with El Nino which have brought unprecedented erosion to the United States' west coast is an enormous task. NASA, the U. S. Geological Survey (USGS) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) are combining efforts to provide public officials with the tools they need to accurately assess coastal erosion.

Engineers Build Window Onto Formation Of Atomic Layers
Materials science engineers have built an instrument to help them observe the process of sputtering---a method of (1998-02-24)

Addicted Doctors Need Special Service
A dedicated service for addict doctors is now long overdue. Doctors are at special risk of developing addiction problems, owing to the strain of medical practice, erosion of the taboo against injecting and opiates and access to supplies. Once addicted, doctors face a major problem in accessing effective treatment, finding themselves isolated and carrying a stigma, such that they feel that they cannot seek treatment from 'colleagues'.

Biodiversity Worth $2.9 Trillion
The annual economic and environmental benefits of biodiversity total approximately $300 billion in the United States and $2.928 trillion worldwide, according to an new analysis by Cornell University biologists, as reported in the December 1997 issue of BioScience. (1997-12-05)

USGS Scientists Gear Up For El Nino
From the West Coast to South Florida, the U.S. Geological Survey is gearing up as part of the scientific front line in studying and reducing the impact of El Nino. (1997-11-06)

Genetically Altered Cotton Is Cheaper And More Earth-Friendly
A genetically altered variety of cotton being field tested this season by University of Florida researchers requires less herbicide, which should mean reduced environmental damage, lower production costs for growers and cheaper prices on cotton goods for consumers. (1997-11-04)

Livestock Grain Could Feed 800 Million
The United States could feed 800 million people with grain that livestock eat, according to a Cornell University ecologist's analysis of the environmental impact of American agriculture. David Pimentel said the American system of farming grain-fed livestock consumes resources far out of proportion to the yield, accelerates soil erosion, affects world food supply and will have to change in the future. (1997-08-11)

River Sediment May Hold Key To Land Use Patterns
A record of rainfall, river flow, land use and human migration may be stacked away in the sediments at river mouths, according to Penn State researchers (1997-05-27)

Value, Status And Function Of Nation's Wetlands Detailed In State-By-State Report
The role of wetlands in providing habitat for wildlife, reducing floods and erosion and improving water quality is documented as part of a comprehensive state-by-state assessment of the nation's wetlands compiled by the U.S. Geological Survey (1997-03-07)

Logging Issues Not Clear Cut, Say Conservationists
An unlikely tool to save tropical forest wildlife may be the chainsaw, according to participants of a forest-diversity workshop, organized by the Wildlife Conservation Society. With logging regimes owning more forest land than all national parks combined, conservationists look toward forest departments and production forests to complement existing reserves (1997-01-23)

Cornell Study: End Irrigation Subsidies And Reward Conservation
Unless the world's food-growing nations improve their resource-management practices, life in the 21st century will be as tough as it is now in the 80 countries that already suffer serious water shortages, a new Cornell University study warns. As a start,governments should end irrigation subsidies that encourage inefficient use of water and instead reward conservation (1997-01-22)
