June Science Picks – Leads, Feeds, and Story Seeds
It’s June, which means that this year’s hurricane season has begun - and the USGS has science that weathers the storm. In 2005, Hurricanes Katrina and Rita demonstrated the devastation that storms can inflict and the importance of hurricane hazard research and preparedness. More than half of the U.S. population lives within 50 miles of a coast, and that number continues to increase. A major goal of the USGS is to reduce the vulnerability of the people and areas most at risk from natural hazards. This month’s edition of Science Picks shares the science and technology used to do just that.
Check out more USGS hurricane-related programs and get the latest on storm happenings throughout the season by visiting the USGS Hurricane Web site at http://www.usgs.gov/hazards/hurricanes/2007/default.asp.
