This red rock wonderland will amaze you with its formations, refresh you with its trails, and inspire you with its sunsets.
A rugged, whitewater river flowing northward through deep canyons, the New River is among the oldest rivers on the continent. New River Gorge National River in West Virginia encompasses over 70,000 acres of land along the New River, is rich in cultural and natural history, and offers an abundance of scenic and recreational opportunities.
Denali is six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America's tallest peak, 20,310' Denali. Wild animals large and small roam un-fenced lands, living as they have for ages. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness await.
DOINews: EROS Scientist Gabriel Senay to be Co-located at North Central CSC
Gabriel Senay will be co-located at the DOI North Central Climate Science Center (NC CSC) starting August 2014. His research work focuses on the integration and application of remotely sensed data for agro-hydrologic modeling. Gabriel will promote and advance the use of satellite-derived multi-scale evapotranspiration products by the key stakeholders in the irrigation community for water resources planning and management. He will establish a stronger linkage between the USGS Earth Resources Observation and Science (EROS) Center's Land Cover Monitoring, Assessment and Projection (LCMAP) program and the NC CSC Resource for Vulnerability Assessment, Adaptation and Mitigation Planning (ReVAMP) activities in order to improve data and information products for climate and land use research and applications.
