The Department of Energy's Atmospheric Radiation Monitoring System Mobile Climate Research Facility has been engaged in a one-year deployment at Highlands Center (July 2012 - July 2013). The goal was to study aerosols - tiny particles in the air such as dust, soot and sea salt - to improve understanding of how aerosols effect Earth's climate. The video below features excerpts from a NPR interview with Principal Investigator Dr. Larry Berg.

Shallow Water Mapping Techniques Workshop
On September 30 2009, the National Park Service's Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit sponsored a workshop on shallow water mapping techniques and challenges at the University of New Hampshire's Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping. The workshop was organized and coordinated by the Gulf of Maine Mapping Initiative (GOMMI) (www.gulfofmaine.org/gommi). GOMMI is subcommittee of the Gulf of Maine Council on the Environment whose goal is to promote and facilitate seafloor mapping, particularly in the Gulf of Maine.
The objectives of the workshop were to provide: an overview of shallow water mapping techniques, an opportunity to assess the regional resource management, monitoring, research, outreach, and education applications of seafloor mapping, a technical foundation enabling informed interactions with collaborators and to network with technical experts and representatives from multiple agencies to foster seafloor mapping collaborations.
Two major products were produced as a result of the one day workshop. A workshop proceedings which includes overviews of: the need for shallow water mapping, the technologies available to accomplish it, and recommendations for proceeding. The other product was a matrix, which compares advantages/limitations, data types, and range of suitable conditions for the various technologies used in seafloor mapping.
