Choosing the Right Antenna for GPR Investigations

By Jami Harmon, GSSI Antennas used with ground penetrating radar (GPR) come in different shapes and sizes. The largest antennas typically radiate the lower frequencies necessary to detect the deepest targets. The smallest antennas radiate the highest frequencies that provide the greatest resolution required to detect small, shallow targets. The “best” antenna for a job

Monitoring Network Assesses Ozone Layer Threats

On the heels of the first definitive signs of the ozone layer recovery in 2018, an international team of scientists discovered that production and emission of a banned, potent ozone-depleting chemical is on the rise again. A new research finding, published in Nature on May 23, locates the source region for about half of those

USGS, Scientists Test Drone-Based Stream Gauging

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and independent scientists gathered in Auburn, Maine, to evaluate the use of sensor-mounted unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), or drones, to gauge stream stage, velocity, bathymetry and discharge. The technology is being evaluated and modeled to determine whether it will support the fast, accurate and safe measurement of rivers, especially when they

360-Degree Camera Provides Ground-Based Imaging Following Weather Disasters

In the aftermath of natural disasters, capturing image data is a critical information resource for disaster management, supporting the response effort to deliver emergency infrastructures and supplies, risk assessment, damage assessment for cost estimation, structural analysis, and beyond. After Hurricane Michael in 2018 and a devastating tornado in Alabama in 2019, Site Tour 360 visited

Antarctica Detailed in 3D

Ice is a hot topic when it comes to understanding and monitoring how this fragile component of the Earth system is being affected by climate change. Scientists go to great lengths to study changes happening in the remote icy reaches of our planet–a subject that is being discussed in detail at the Living Planet Symposium

Aerial Tree Map Aids Natural Flood Management Project in Essex

A map of trees supplied by aerial mapping company Bluesky is playing an important role in an innovative project to reduce flooding via natural flood-management techniques around the Spains Hall Estate in Essex. Working alongside engineering company Atkins, the Environment Agency, Essex and Suffolk River Trust and Essex Wildlife Trust, the Estate is looking to

OCO-3 Ready to Extend NASA’s Study of Carbon

When the Orbiting Carbon Observatory 3 (OCO-3) heads to the International Space Station, it will bring a new view to studies of Earth’s carbon cycle. From its perch on the space station, OCO-3 will observe near-global measurements of carbon dioxide on land and sea, from just after sunrise to just before sunset. That makes it

Brazil Approves Drones for Country’s First BVLOS Operations

Brazil’s National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) approved Beyond Visual-Line-Of-Sight (BVLOS) flights to be carried out in Brazil for the first time in the country’s history, using senseFly’s proprietary drone technology. As the first BVLOS approval ever achieved in the country, the announcement marks a pivotal point in Brazil’s commercial drone industry and will play an

Return of GEDI’s First Data Reveals the Third Dimension of Forests

NASA’s Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI) mission launched in December 2018. From its perch aboard the International Space Station, GEDI’s powerful lasers create detailed 3D maps of Earth’s forests and topography, providing innovative and unique spaceborne observations. In January 2019, GEDI’s lasers were turned on for the first time, and the instrument is now giving

Climate Change Impacts Peatland CO2 Gas Exchange Primarily via Moisture Conditions

Northern peatlands store approximately one third of global soil carbon, approximately 500 gigatons. Because the peatland carbon cycling is largely controlled by partly anaerobic soil conditions, the carbon stored in these soils is extremely vulnerable to climate warming that is expected to reduce soil moisture and therefore increase soil aeration. Understanding the interactions between warming
