Where Catastrophic Droughts and Floods Are Bound to Happen in the U.S.

Where Catastrophic Droughts and Floods Are Bound to Happen in the U.S. | Horn APHuG | Scoop.it
Water use in the USA is will rise to become a national issue in the next few years. Article: http://agtoday.us/1hGoLdt This GRACE-based map shows the rate that groundwater supplies – which worldwide are estimated to compose half of our drinking water – have changed from 2003 to 2012. The way the satellites snag this data is rather neat; they sample tiny shifts in the earth's gravity, and from those changes deduce how much H2O is hiding beneath the soil. There's nothing neat about how vast portions of the country are drying out, though, which are shown on this map in angry red that indicates the historical "freshwater storage rate of change"

"Halloween and Thanksgiving are just around the corner and pumpkins are already showing up at roadside stands. Jack o’lanterns, decorative displays and pumpkin pies are the main destinies of most pumpkins in the United States. Elsewhere in the world, however, the pumpkin is nearly exclusively considered a food crop or animal feed."

17th century London visualized

"Six students from De Montfort University have created a stellar 3D representation of 17th century London, as it existed before The Great Fire of 1666. The three-minute video provides a realistic animation of Tudor London, and particularly a section called Pudding Lane where the fire started. As Londonist notes, “Although most of the buildings are conjectural, the students used a realistic street pattern [taken from historical maps] and even included the hanging signs of genuine inns and businesses” mentioned in diaries from the period."
