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."

Throwback to when my geography class explored Johnson, Pennsylvania!! 🍃🍂🍁#tbt #fallof2016 #physicalgeography #naturalhazards

80 minutes of class time is made easier when you have teammates! #takeoverthursday #earthscienceclass #naturalhazards

Researchers from @uncchapelhill and @ncstate collect both tap and surface water in Lumberton to test for contamination levels post-Hurricane Matthew. #ResearchUNCovered #NaturalHazards #BecauseScience #Environment #Research

As a self-described klutz my days of walking just got a little more challenging.

Dealing with the #tsunami awareness people was one of my favorite parts of my work at @unisdr. Their dedication to saving lives is always an inspiration. The #Caribbean #Tsunami #Warning Program, piloted by @noaa @nws, is a particularly good example. They produced this great set of easy-to-follow warning messages on pens, in four Caribbean languages: #French, #Spanish, #English and #Dutch. #disasters #disasterriskreduction #disasterriskmanagement #earlywarning #naturalhazards #hazards #earthquake #seismology #publicawareness #publicawarenesscampaign

Calm After The Storm. 02 06 2017. Town Hall Square, Vilnius, Lithuania. || This is Vilnius. The Church of Saint Casimir, the patron saint of Lithuania, is one of the most beautiful and recognisable sites in Vilnius. Every evening its façade gets lit up by fabulous sunset lights and shines like a candle. || Huawei P8 Smartphone. -- #IGersLithuania #Vilnius #Lithuania #Lietuva #VilniusOldTown #StreetLife #CloudPorn #Calm #CapitalCity #Sunset #ClassicBeauty #DeepBlueSky #VilniusFullOfSpace #Romance #ChurchOfStCasimir #VisitLithuania #StreetsOfVilnius #NaturalVilnius #VilniusHeritage #NaturalHazards #BalticTrend #IGersViennaOnTour #Candlelight #EpicSunset #IGSunset #BestOfLithuania #TurnSummerOnLT #NationalGeographic #UrbanRomantix #BestOfTheDay

Earth is spectacularly beautiful, especially when seen from a bird’s eye view. This image, of a sweeping pattern made by a river in Iceland is testimony to it. Don't you think?
Visit the #EGUblog to discover more about this incredible #ImaggeoOnMondays image(*link in bio*). The picture shows river Leirá which drains sediment-loaded glacial water from the Myrdalsjökull glacier in #Iceland. Myrdalsjökull glacier covers Katla, one of Iceland’s most active and ice-covered volcanoes.

Floods from subglacial lakes, that travel up to several tens of kilometers beneath the glacier before they reach a glacial river, have been monitored by a clusters of seismometers to enabled an early-warning of the floods, at least 20 hours in advance of them arriving at a given point! It was possible to track the flood front merely using the ground vibrations it excited.

Awaiting Tornado. 01 06 2017. Bokšto g., Vilnius, Lithuania. || This is Vilnius.

Earthquake taskforce and rapid response earthquake center of the CSN.
________________________________

The seismological service of #Chile (CSN - Centro Sismológico Nacional) runs a 24/7 live data processing #observatory. Automatic #earthquake #detection provides first results within seconds and therefore kind of #earlywarning. Especially emergency #management is strongly depending on such data. Besides of #computer driven results 3 data analyst are working 24/7 to provide manually constraint information (with error estimation) within at least 15 minutes after the earthquake.
For non #seismologists: #seismological data is so complex, that up to date automatic #dataprocessing cannot provide results in a similar certainty level as manual processing.
The screens provide a lot of information, e.g. live seismograms, last #epicenter, time since the last #event and a lot more.

The #green pot in the lower part of the image is an example #seismometer, which is used at all of the 120!!! broadband stations across the country, which is like 5000km long but only 200 km wide. As least #impressive like the 200 inch screen combination. ..
I've never been at such an one of a kind place on #Earth in respect of #seismology.

Hey COSS Students! You will check-in in room 207 of McKee Fisk now! Have you seen our new office? 😎

No need to issue a tornado warning, I was just perfecting my torpedo moves. 🌪🚨⚠️ #falsealarm #watchout #comingthrough #naturalhazards #doggyroomba #dancewithme #boomerang #getit #boomeranging
