Redoubt Volcano could be on the verge of eruption! Want to watch the volcano in real-time? In this edition of USGS science picks, we'll tell you how! You can also learn about the impact of airport runway deicers on the environment, how hot things are really getting in the Arctic, a diet gone bad for sea otters on the central Californian coasts and what may be causing the increase of tree deaths in the West. Also, view aerial maps of last summer's devastating Indiana floods, learn more about the affects of soil carbon and understand how water will be managed in a changing climate. But that's not all - we have the results of a landmark grizzly bear study and a new joint effort between the USGS and NASA that will put you over the moon! 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 email jrobertson@usgs.gov.
