Having started out monitoring retreating glaciers in various regions of the world, the EIS team has been employing its methodology to document other changes to our planet. In the last two years we have monitored beetle kill in the Rocky Mountain region and the effects of the Fourmile Canyon fire. We photographed the aftermath of the Gulf oil spill, and are observing atmospheric dust in the Four Corners region. In this lecture, we will present some of images we have obtained and discuss the techniques the Survey is using.
