this is super cool. it reminds me of the images the Cassini satellite took from Saturn of the earth. it is very cool to see images of the earth from space because it seems to dwarf us in relativity to the universe.
Chad Ewell's comment, September 13, 2013 11:25 PM
Its incredible how much we can see on maps now a days. Our technology now a days never stops amazing me and this just shows how advanced we actually are in the technology field. This definitely takes maps too a whole new level.

man, and geologists say we see a volcano, or an earthquake. well you could but you wouldn't be there for long.

Utah's Great Salt Lake is shrinking

Utah's Great Salt Lake is shrinking | Study Geography | Scoop.it
Human activity is playing a role in the dwindling size of Utah's Great Salt Lake, according to new research.While the research group acknowledged the role that climate fluctuations, such as droughts and floods, have played in the shift of the lake's water levels over time, the decrease in the lake's size is predominantly due to human causes. According to the report, the heavy reliance on consumptive water uses has reduced the lake level by 11 feet and its volume by 48 percent.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, April 6, 2016 12:15 PM

The railroad causeway that creates the color difference between the northern and sotuhern portions of the Great Lake is as the Union Pacific plans to change the causeway; the proposed bridge would allow for the two distinct salinities to intermingle more.  Environmentally, this lake is not exceptional.  Like many lakes in dry climates with growing populations, the people are using the freshwater flow into the lakes more extensively than they have in the past.  The Great Salt Lake, the Aral Sea, Lake Chad, Lake Urmia, and the Dead Sea are all drying up.

Sports Movies and Globalization

Via Seth Dixon
Jyoti Chouhan's insight:

This 6 minute clip is a preview of the movie "Million Dollar Arm."  It looks to be a fun movie, but what I find academically interesting about the movie is that it is a portrayal of one of the countless fascinating cultural and economic interactions that was created by globalization.  The story is about the economic forces motivating baseball scouts to seek out untapped labor pools in areas such as India that were previously not a part of baseball's cultural reach (and the really cool global lives of these individuals).

There's an absolute treasure trove of not only movies but also games that are very powerful for educational purposes. It is something that students can relate to. It is relevant & interesting.

Five GIS Projects That Are Changing The Way We Understand Racism

Five GIS Projects That Are Changing The Way We Understand Racism | Study Geography | Scoop.it
Within the fields of history and journalism, the use of GIS (Geographic Information Systems) has greatly changed the way we visualize, understand, and analyze racial bias within the United States and the globe. Maps have always been a way that we were able to conceptualize the topography of our universe, and now the use of GIS has given us more insight into the inequality embedded in our country than ever before. Below are just a few of the projects working to use spatial analysis in order to reveal the historical and current prejudices that people of color face every day.

Saturn Spacecraft Samples Interstellar Dust

Saturn Spacecraft Samples Interstellar Dust | Study Geography | Scoop.it
NASA's Cassini spacecraft has detected the faint but distinct signature of dust coming from beyond our solar system.
Jyoti Chouhan's insight:
The Cassini spacecraft, which has been orbiting Saturn since 2004, has detected alien dust that came from outside our solar system. Scientists suspect that this dust is interstellar in origin because it moves fast and in different directions, compared to the dust found on Saturn, according to a recently published report in the journal of Science. And although this alien dust was faint, it had a distinct signature.

The Dead Sea's Geography

The Dead Sea's Geography | Study Geography | Scoop.it
Fields of sinkholes instead of beaches, roads swept away by floods, large industrial ponds instead of a sea and one overarching question: What can be done so that things don’t get even worse in the next 20 years?

Jyoti Chouhan's insight:
This interactive really is a dramatic look at Israel's endangered natural wonder, the Dead Sea, and explores the reasons why it is in danger of dying. Now if you are a wise guy like my students you are asking "How can it die if it is already the Dead Sea?"  Historically, we have undervalued the role of salty lakes in the broader ecosystem and physical landscape.  Humanity has searched for freshwater to fuel our settlements and has considered them 'dead weight' and not 'living waters.'  The Dead Sea isn't alone; hypersaline lakes such as the Aral Sea and the Great Salt Lake have also undergone transformations.
