SRTM Shuttle Radar Topography Mission - GIS Geography

SRTM Shuttle Radar Topography Mission - GIS Geography | Study Geography | Scoop.it
During its 11-day mission, the space shuttle Endeavour orbited the Earth 16 times.

As part of this mission, it captured Earth’s topography at 1 arc-second (30 meters) for over 80% of the Earth’s surface.

Using synthetic aperture radar and interferometry, SRTM has collected one of the most accurate digital elevation models of Earth.

A web platform for landuse, climate, demography, hydrology and beach erosion in the Black Sea catchment

A web platform for landuse, climate, demography, hydrology and beach erosion in the Black Sea catchment | Study Geography | Scoop.it
The Black Sea catchment (BSC) is facing important demographic, climatic and landuse changes that may increase pollution, vulnerability and scarcity of water resources, as well as beach erosion through sea level rise. Limited access to reliable time-series monitoring data from environmental, statistical, and socio-economical sources is a major barrier to policy development and decision-making. To address these issues, a web-based platform was developed to enable discovery and access to key environmental information for the region. This platform covers: landuse, climate, and demographic scenarios; hydrology and related water vulnerability and scarcity; as well as beach erosion. Each data set has been obtained with state-of-the-art modelling tools from available monitoring data using appropriate validation methods. These analyses were conducted using global and regional data sets. The data sets are intended for national to regional assessments, for instance for prioritizing environmental protection projects and investments. Together they form a unique set of information, which lay out future plausible change scenarios for the BSC, both for scientific and policy purposes.

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 Disconnect Between Applied Geography and Geography Education | GIS Education Community

Many of us in the GIS education community recently participated in the annual ESRI International and Education User Conferences (http://www.esri.com/uc and http://www.esri.com/educ).

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.  

Sally Egan's curator insight, April 10, 2016 11:05 PM
Another great example of human activities changing the biophysical environment.
