from satellites to detect subtle land elevation changes. This tool will enable the USGS to monitor earthquake-prone areas and conduct monitoring of high-risk volcanoes. The budget also provides funds to continue the Advanced National Seismic System...
Traditional Inuit ice treks guided from space
..." As well as detecting ice thickness and age, radar
has the additional advantage of seeing through cloud and darkness, so usable imagery can be acquired whenever an overpass takes place. "If a satellite image is taken at midnight we aim to have it available by midday the same day," added Bennett....

MIT aims radar research at breast cancer
...E, Mass. -- A breast cancer treatment based on MIT radar
research that was originally aimed at detecting space-borne missiles is showing promise in the final phase of clinical testing. Preliminary results to be presented on Wednesday, April 21 at the 9th International Congress on Hyperthermic Oncology in ...

Tropical legume could be alternative hay/forage crop for Texas
...erton. Forage scientists have had lablab on their radar
screens for some time. The tropical legume forage can be grazed, cut as hay or grown in mixtures with corn or sorghum and harvested as silage. It can produce nearly 2 tons of dry forage per acre in 100 days with leaf protein content as high as 25 pe...

Genetically-engineered 'marathon mouse' keeps on running
...ility of an effect on muscle fibers was not on our radar
screen." However, when the researchers produced mice with enhanced PPAR-delta activity, they saw a major transformation in skeletal muscle fibers. The mice showed a major enhancement of so-called "slow-twitch" muscle fibers and a decrease in "fast-t...
Study in Science reveals recreational fishing takes big bite of ocean catch
...a. "Recreational anglers are operating below the radar
screen of management. While the individual may take relatively few fish, we show that a few fish per person times millions of fishermen can have an enormous impact." "The large impacts of recreational fisheries surprised us, and they may startle many...
New sign language suggests children create language's fundamentals through learning
