The Secret is Out: Spy Photos Go Public--No longer hidden behind the cloak of secrecy, 50,000 more frames of spy satellite imagery dating back to the 1960s will soon be available to the public. Bringing these photos in from the "cold" is an ongoing initiative between the USGS, the National Archives and Records Administration and the National Intelligence Mapping Agency. Declassifying images is particularly significant to environmental researchers, providing additional data before the Landsat series of satellites were launched in the early 1970s. Preview images such as the Severodinsk Shipyard in the USSR, the cities of Hanoi and Beijing and the Aswan Dam in Egypt at http://www.usgs.gov/features/satellite_images.html.

Bear Markets, Bull MarketsWetland Markets?--Capturing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and holding it in "sinks" on the landscape is a critical component to dealing with global climate change curbing emissions alone will not bring the natural carbon cycle into better balance. Carbon dioxide emissions are beginning to be traded as commodities, creating a new market sector. In the Prairie Pothole Region of the Great Plains, wetlands that have been restored from agricultural use may play an important role in the world carbon market. USGS researchers are investigating where wetlands have been restored, how much carbon they hold, and how this "natural resource" can help understand greenhouse gases contributions to global climate change. Restored wetlands in the Prairie Pothole Region have the potential to sequester more than the 100 million metric ton emission reduction goal established for the United States for 2012 by Presid
