Nov. / Dec. 2017 Issue of Sound Waves Online

Stories about the wilderness breach, sea otter population, time-series data, and more.

Virtual Reality helps us 'see' the Future

USGS partners with Google Daydream Impact Project, "Rising Seas--Today and Tomorrow," which allows people to glimpse the future on LA's beaches.

Computer simulation predicts flooding on coral reef-lined coasts

New model called BEWARE can be used to predict short-term flooding and longer term impacts of sea-level rise that threaten property and public safety.

First observation of gold particles in hot hydrothermal fluids

USGS scientist Amy Gartman and coauthors published their discovery of gold particles in boiling fluids from a hydrothermal vent.

Eyes on the Coast

Video Cameras Help Forecast Coastal Change

Seafloor mineral deposits record Arctic Ocean's unique history

Deposits show unusual enrichment in rare metal scandium, which is in great demand to amalgamate with aluminum to make light, fuel-efficient aircraft

Where Technology meets Science

USGS tracks piping plover patterns of habitat selection from Maine to North Carolina using an iPlover smartphone application!

Evolution of a Breach

USGS tracks evolution of a Fire Island hurricane-made breach

Multinational research investigating earthquake hazards

Scientists collecting data to understand the hazards an offshore fault poses to adjacent coastal communities in southeast Alaska and western Canada.
