USGS February science picks

mulates each year in the mountains across the country are a vital part of the hydrologic cycle, according to USGS hydrologists. The snows that melt off each spring provide essential runoff to streams and reservoirs and provide recharge to the nation's ground-water reservoirs as the ground thaws and the snows melt and filter downward into the aquifers (water-bearing rock formations).

Slowed Progress in Chesapeake Bay Recovery: A new USGS report about ground water and the health of the Chesapeake Bay suggests that the Bay will take longer to recover than expected. The Bay ecosystem has too much nitrogen and other nutrients, which stimulates algal blooms that affect water quality and block sunlight from reaching underwater grasses. The water-quality criteria proposed by the Chesapeake Bay Program probably will not be met by the goal date of 2010 because of the lag time between implementing best management practices and the actual improvement in quality of the ground water entering the Bay. Ground water supplies about half of the water reaching the Bay; in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, half of the ground water is at least 10 years old to more than 50 years old.

Fly Me To The Moon and Let Me Play Among the Stars: For those of us who will probably never get to the moon ourselves, USGS has developed modern scanning technology and processing methods to make historic space images taken by NASA's Lunar Orbiters in the 1960s are now a
