1. NASA Land Information System (LIS) Data Sets [NASA_LIS_DATA]
The Land Information System (LIS) provides collection of sample data for demonstration of LIS code. The original source of each data set is given whenever possible. LIS does not endorse the validity, ...


2. Environmental Hazards and Mud Volcanoes in Romania [gov.noaa.ngdc.mgg.photos.G01208]   PARENT METADATA
Romania, an eastern European country, is severely affected by a variety of natural hazards. These include frequent earthquakes, floods, landslides, soil erosion, and drought all of which have major ...


3. Erosional Landforms [gov.noaa.ngdc.mgg.photos.G01217]   PARENT METADATA
The hydrologic system, which includes all possible paths of motion of Earth's near-surface fluids including air and water, is largely responsible for the variety of landforms found on the continents. ...


4. Faults [gov.noaa.ngdc.mgg.photos.G01203]   PARENT METADATA
Through the study of faults and their effects, much can be learned about the size and recurrence intervals of earthquakes. Faults also teach us about crustal movements that have produced mountains ...


5. Landslides, Set 1 [gov.noaa.ngdc.mgg.photos.G01199]   PARENT METADATA
The slopes above streams and rivers are subjected to a variety of processes that cause them to recede and retreat from the river or stream channel. These processes, collectively called mass wasting, ...


6. Landslides, Set 2 [gov.noaa.ngdc.mgg.photos.G01372]   PARENT METADATA
This set expands the topics included in Set 1 and includes (in addition to landslides) rockfalls, rock avalanches, mud flows, debris flows, slumps, creep, and sinkholes. The photos were taken in California, ...


7. Seismic Creep [gov.noaa.ngdc.mgg.photos.G01216]   PARENT METADATA
Seismic creep is the constant or periodic movement on a fault as contrasted with the sudden erupture associated with an earthquake. It is a usually slow deformation of rock resulting from constant ...


8. Dust Deposition in Southern Nevada and California [VATECH_VAdust]
Dust samples taken annually for five years from 55 sites in southern Nevada and California provide an unparalleled source of information on modern rates of dust deposition, grain size, ...

11. Svalbard REU program undergraduate student theses [svalbard_reu_program_undergraduate_student_theses]
Completed undergraduate theses and reports from Svalbard REU participants.


12. The use of micromorphology in examining the nature and history of Antarctic glacial sediments [NL_ANTARCTIC_GLACIAL_SEDS]
There are two locations within south Victoria Land, Antarctica where glacial sediments have been analysed using micromorphology. One is Taylor Valley, where a discontinous linear moraine ridge at ...
