The Controlled Flood in Grand Canyon
June 3, 11:00 A.M. - Room 111
In March 1996, a controlled flood was released from Glen Canyon Dam on the Colorado River in Arizona. The event attracted substantial attention at the time, because use of water for any purpose in the arid west is controversial, and, in this case, a major dam was being used to meet objectives beyond its normal purpose. The flood was released to demonstrate riparian ecosystem restoration in Grand Canyon National Park. AGU has just published a book, "The Controlled Flood in Grand Canyon," in its Geophysical Monograph series, which reports the scientific results of the flood study. It includes background information and data and analysis of the flood's impact on many specific aspects of the river corridor; from sand bars to endangered species. One of the book's editors, Dr. G. Richard Marzolf, Chief of the Regional Research Branch, Water Resources Division, U.S. Geological Survey, Reston, VA, will provide an overview of the experiment and its outcome.

Lunar Prospector's Last Mission
June 3, 2:00 P.M. - Room 111
The Lunar Prospector has been circling the Moon at an altitude of about 30 kilometers (19 miles), gathering geological data through its array of instruments. Now, with Prospector's useful life approaching an end, scientists are planning one last dramatic experiment: a controlled crash into a permanently shadowed crater in the hope of liberating a water vapor plume that could be viewed from Earth and establish definitively that water ice exists on the lunar surface.
