The U.S. Geological Survey is implementing new measures that will improve public access to USGS-funded science as detailed in its new public access plan. The plan enables the USGS to expand  its current on-line gateways to provide free public access to scholarly research and supporting data produced in full or in part with USGS funding, no matter how it is published.

Cool stuff. As a land surveyor, I've been involved with GPS for some time. I'm also old enough to have surveyed using conventional means and can appreciate how valuable a tool GPS is. The systems in place now are amazing.

In 1879, Dr. James Beal started the world's longest-running experiment at Michigan State University. The experiment is scheduled to end in 2100, but it could go on for longer.

A wave of new research points to a disturbing cause for the woolly mammoth's extinction. Can we prevent ourselves from repeating the same mistake?
