Visit Arches and discover a landscape of contrasting colors, landforms and textures unlike any other in the world. The park has over 2,000 natural stone arches, in addition to hundreds of soaring pinnacles, massive fins and giant balanced rocks. 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: SC CSC Research Director to Present at the 11th Annual CPASW
The annual Climate Prediction Applications Science Workshop (CPASW), initiated in 2002 by the NOAA National Weather Service Climate Services Division, brings together a diverse group of climate researchers, climate product producers, and users to share developments in research and applications of climate predictions for societal decision-making.
In 2013, the 11th Annual CPASW will convene in Logan, Utah, and focus on “Climate Information for Natural Resource Management.” Our South Central Climate Science Center Research Director, Renee McPherson will be giving two presentations:
1.) Analysis of Teleconnections and Drought for the Arbuckle Simpson Aquifer, and
2.) Partnering with American Indian Tribes in the South Central U.S. on Climate Science and Services.
