The future of flood mapping: Making a difference in flood response and modeling

The Dartmouth Flood Observatory has been providing interactive flood maps for natural disaster responders and planners for 20 years. The DFO is developing new ways of combining satellite imagery and geographic information systems to help identify areas prone to flooding in a changing climate.

The hard science of soft substances: Julio Sepúlveda uses lipids to decode ancient ecosystems

Julio Sepúlveda is a unique fossil-hunter. Rather than the hard exoskeletons of ancient organisms, Sepúlveda analyzes a softer biological component, fats. He looks at the distribution of organic molecules in nature from soils and sediments to lakes and the ocean, with a focus mostly on lipids, the molecular constituent of fat. He uses this data to not only reconstruct ancient environments but also to contribute to predictions for how our current climate might respond to similar environmental conditions.
