You are invited to join our scientists and learn more about climate change, floods, volcanoes, ground water and more at the American Geophysical Union Conference in California! The holiday season is just around the corner — how many of you know why mistletoe is not just for kissing or what minerals make up your holiday lights? In this edition of Science Picks, you can learn how a prehistoric climate period is providing clues about future changes and about recent estimates of large deposits of gas hydrates on Alaska's North Slope. Discover the new USGS photo and video galleries and find the imagery you crave. Check out stunning earth imagery, footage of a surging glacier, hurricanes, bears and more! If you would like to receive Science Picks via e-mail, would like to change the recipient or no longer want to receive it, please e-mail jrobertson@usgs.gov.
