Have a safe trip for your exchange and have lots of fun! Said all I wanna tell you guys either in person or spiritually already so yeah nothing much more to say~ see you guys soon! #anothersemwithhuiniinadifferenttimezone #naturalhazards #cantwaitforourJBgradtrip #finallymyfacedoesntlookthatbigbesideyouguys

USGS Intern Spotlight — Meet USGS intern, Ian Gammarino. In this selfie, Ian is in the field working with USGS Research Geologist, Francis Ashland, inspecting a slope. Here's what Ian has to say about his time with USGS, "I help with landslide hazard research. Whenever I'm not in the field, I'm reading news articles about landslides that have happened in the past and then cataloging them in a database. We then compare landslide occurrences to rainfall data to find a correlation. This is all part of our mission of establishing a landslide hazard prediction model.

I like interning with USGS because I'm able to travel to picturesque locations, in upstate New York for example, and not only enjoy the work, but the view too! It combines my love of travel with my love of setting up data-collecting systems. Working with an experienced scientist is a heck of an opportunity and the stories they tell are a heck of a perk."

So this is me shooting on the beach for a session a couple weekends ago with one of my amazing assistants @melbenv -- who has such a serious look on her face because she actually is just about to say to me that she saw LIGHTENING. #naturalhazards #lighteningstrike #beachportraits #safetyfirst

Elsemarie deVries, a PhD student in the UNC Coastal Environmental Change Lab, obtains an aerial survey of Edisto Beach in South Carolina by flying a kite with a camera attached to it. The camera takes approximately 200 to 400 photos that are stitched together with software to create a topographic model of the area. By measuring dune volume, she can get a better grasp on the effects of Hurricane Matthew.

Lake Eufaula is currently under a burn ban. Wildfires ravaged Oklahoma during the month of March. Although estimates vary, the Oklahoma Forestry Service reported more than 400,000 acres burned by the end of the first week of March. The governor declared a state of emergency in 22 counties. If you visit the lake, enjoy the water sports, but avoid outdoor burning of any kind including campfires, fire pits, and fireworks. Help Oklahoma protect its wilderness and residents. Stay safe, Oklahoma. #oklahoma #okwx #wildfires #burnban #lakeeufaula #naturalhazards 🔥

La crema de marges ha permès desenvolupar BAI (Burn Area Index) i NBR (Normalized Burn Ràtio) amb DRON.

Ressalta les zones CREMADES i és útil per ANÀLISI en zones d'interès on el satèl·lit no es prou detallat.

Esperem utilitzar-lo nomès en cremes controlades.

Highlight burned areas and is useful for analysis in areas of interest where the satellite is not detailed enough.

We hope to use it only in controlled burns.

I feel worried about the consequences of the natural hazards in Peru which does not only affect people in the northern normally arid areas but also leaves people without clean water as far as to the capital of Lima. As a teenager I did a report on El Niño and a bit later I went to see one of the oldest forests in Madre de Dios. I've spent later years to try to learn more about the amazing cultures (first enslaved, then exploited), natural hazards, and worked with resources management in North and South. Now feel both worried and happy about going back to and to continue with the same thing which is a bit of a key: End #deforestation ... (!!) Allowing for new sources of income is vital in countries where people already have little and help people living along with nature but on better terms is no longer a vision it's an obligation. Also for us. Nothing around us is infinite and these cathastophies are only in the beginning of their peak epoch since what happened years ago has repecussions first many years later. We've messed up nature and the aftermaths seems pretty huge... 😡 😡☟🌊 #peru #prayforperu #climatechange #amazonas #elniño #floodings #huayco #landslides #elniñocostero #deforestationsucks #vivaperu #naturalhazards

@Regrann from @usgs - Landsat Detects Eruptions at Ethiopian Volcano — Landsat 8’s shortwave infrared (SWIR) band is useful in viewing recent eruptions at Erta Ale volcano in northern Ethiopia near the Eritrea border. The volcano’s name means “smoking mountain,” and its southernmost vent is referred to as “the gateway to hell.” Both names acknowledge its long-term volcanic activity since the early 1900s, and the persistent filling and draining of lava lakes within its main crater rim. The lava lakes have been filled most recently since the 1960s.
🛰
Like other shield volcanoes, Erta Ale has gentle slopes and a wide base of about 25 miles in diameter. Shield volcanoes do not erupt explosively. Instead, the basaltic lava is very fluid and erupts like fountains in the lava lakes and along fissures, flowing like streams down the sides. Darker streaks in these recently acquired Landsat images are some of the previously erupted, cooled, and solidified lava flows.
🛰
The elliptical summit crater contains several smaller pit craters, and the current lava lake is in one of these. The red spot in the January 10 image is a SWIR signal associated with the location of the most recent lava lake. The February 11 image, however, shows out-gassing of that lava lake and other hot spots on the southeastern slope of the volcano. According to the Global Volcanism Program, new fissures opened on January 21. Landsat’s SWIR signal infers increased temperatures where new lava is either at very shallow depths below the surface or gurgling to the surface.

Smoke on the water.

From our #Blogs #oikocreditontour : ‘Impact investing’ for sustainable growth .... #Disaster #riskreduction is about repairing and preparing in order to limit the impact of #naturalhazards like #typhoons as much as possible. The #Philippines is one of the most natural disaster prone countries in the world and our #Oikocredit colleagues in the country have been proactively helping their local partners since 2014, with a view to reducing disruption in their operations and making it harder for #poverty to take hold again when disaster strikes.

You really get to understand the importance of tracking positive change in living conditions while reducing #environmentalrisks after one week of field visits with Oikocredit and some of its partners in the Philippines. I like to think we can truly call this work ‘impact investing’. 📸 @opmeerreports Gaël Marteau (right) with Myrna Sabado, a client and local group leader of #ASKI #alalaysakaunlaran #luzon

We've had fantastic submissions to our 2017 image competition - we'll be announcing the finalists in the coming days.
This image, Full moon over Etna's fire by Severine Furst, was one of the finalists from last year's competition. You can take a look at all the finalist images from the 2016 photo contest here: https://imaggeo.egu.eu/photo-contest/2016/

Etna is one of the most active volcano on Earth but also one the most monitored. As soon as instruments show any signs of volcanic activity, scientists from the Istituto Nazionale di Geofisica e Vulcanologia (INGV) of Catania urge to the summit to gather various eruption data.
In this summer evening, the fresh wind sweep the clouds to reveal the rise of the full moon over one of Etna's summit craters where a strombolian eruption is taking place.
