1. Environmental Hazards and Mud Volcanoes in Romania [gov.noaa.ngdc.mgg.photos.G01208]
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 ...


2. Erosional Landforms [gov.noaa.ngdc.mgg.photos.G01217]
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. ...


3. Faults [gov.noaa.ngdc.mgg.photos.G01203]
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 ...


4. Landslides, Set 1 [gov.noaa.ngdc.mgg.photos.G01199]
This set of slides graphically illustrates the potential danger that major earthquakes pose to school structures and to the children and adults who happen to be inside at the time of the earthquake. ...


5. Landslides, Set 2 [gov.noaa.ngdc.mgg.photos.G01372]
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, ...


6. Seismic Creep [gov.noaa.ngdc.mgg.photos.G01216]
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 ...


7. 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, ...

ABSTRACT: Types of data products: Brightness temp, surface temp, rain rate, sea ice snow cover, TPW, IWP, CLW, and emissivity products CURRENTNESS REFERENCE: ground condition Data Set ID Format: ...


12. Sediment Supply to the Arctic Coastal Zone [Sediment_Supply_Arctic_Winter_IPY90_NL]
The data described here are various types of land-based geophysical survey data. The methods used are; Ground Penetrating Radar, Refraction Seismics and Transient Electromagnetics. Surveys are performed ...


13. 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 ...
