estructive manner. Using an airborne surveying platform (the helicopter) equipped with GPS (global positioning system) technology and a high-tech version of the surveyor's plumb bob, the AHF system distinguishes itself from remote sensing technologies in its ability to physically penetrate vegetation and murky water, providing reliable measurement of the underlying topographic surface. To see the AHF in action, go to http://www.usgs.gov/features/h_finder.html. Further information is available at http://sofia.usgs.gov. Jon Campbell, joncampbell@usgs.gov, 703-648-4180.

Charting the Post-Fire Impacts of Wildfire - Although wildfires are still a threat in Colorado this year, other hazards like flooding and debris flows are more likely in fire-scorched areas across the state due to heavy rains and runoff. Nearly a year ago, the Hayman, Coal Seam and Missionary Ridge fires burned over 220,000 acres combined. In response, the USGS developed post-wildfire mitigation maps that detail flood potential and debris flow in these areas. These maps are currently available to emergency planners and will soon be accessible online to the public. Heidi Koontz, hkoontz@usgs.gov, 303-202-4763.


The Genetic Potential of Potentilla rupincola - Molecular genetic tools have become increasingly important in wildlife studies. Genetic techniques contribute to analyses of population dynamics and can document genetic diversity in a variety of species, including Greater Sage-Grouse, Gunnison Sage-Grouse, Trumpeter Swans, Midget Faded Rattlesnakes, Lesser Prairie-Chickens, Mountain Plover, and Potentilla rupincola. The USGS and the University of Denver have jointly developed the Rocky Mountain Center for Conservation Genetics and Systematics, a regional multi-partner collaboration that promotes molecular studies of conservatio
