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

@unavco Field Engineer Shawn Lawrence checks in station PJZX after a wiring repair. The valley in the distance is below sea level and extends from Palm Springs in the north all the way to the Gulf of California in the south. The station is at about 4400 feet and lies south of La Rumorosa, Baja California. The site was built in response to the nearby 2011 El Mayor Cucupah earthquake. #officeoftheday #unavco #geodesy #fieldengineer #fieldwork #geology #geoscience #earth #earthscience #mexico #gps #earthquake #science #naturalhazards

Yes, Donnie. We all know the Iguana has a drinking problem. But, his handicap is better than all of ours so just hand him his damn sand wedge. #golf #iguana #beautifulday #friday #mexico #playadelcarmen #naturalhazards #elcameleon #banyantree #sandtrap #goodmorning #wildlife #naturelovers #vacation

Field work is the best kind of work. Except for the spiky plants. Ouch. #fieldwork #geology #fallingrocks #naturalhazards #prettyviews #fascinatingnature #austriaisawesome

It looks like we are moving into our windy season a little early this year! Be prepared for potentially dangerous situations and plan ahead! #highwinds #naturalhazards #planahead #beprepared

Wednesday GPS Spotlight! Our featured station this week is FARB located in Farrallon, CA. In Northern California, the San Andreas Fault is located very close to the coast for much of its length. This means that most of the GPS data we have is from one side of the fault, which is only half the picture! The Farallon Islands are a chain of rocky islands made from the same granite (Salinian) as the Sierra Nevadas. The Farallons were separated from the Sierra Nevadas 10-20 million years ago and have been carried north up the coast with the Pacific Plate. Now a National Wildlife Refuge, the Farallon Islands give us our best estimate for current motion on the Pacific plate by providing a home for an offshore GPS station. More information on this station can be found by following the link in our bio. Pictured: The FARB GPS antenna is close to the ground, and protected by a clear cover called a radome to, among other things, keep birds from nesting in it (Photo/Ingrid Johanson, UC Berkley). #unavco #gps #gpsspotlight #sanandreasfault #california #farrallonislands #platetectonics #pacificplate #geodesy #geology #science #earth #geoscience #earthscience #data #research #fieldwork #fieldengineer #education #outreach #earthquake #naturalhazards #scientists #researchers #ocean

Norte de Entre Ríos a 35 kms del río Guayquiraro . Las lluvias de la última semana van dejando en evidencia los excesos hídricos: cultivos bajo agua y caminos intransitables. Lamentable si no se revierte.
