In this edition of USGS Science Picks, find out about explosive eruptions at Alaska's Mount Redoubt Volcano, historic flooding in the upper Midwest and a new way to gauge our potential for mitigating climate change through storing carbon dioxide in rocks below the earth's surface. You can also learn about how water quality is a potential concern for U.S. private wells, an out-of-this-world success for your tax dollars and how carbon dioxide is helping marshes cope with global warming. You can also take a glimpse of space and discover Titan's lakes of methane and possible ice volcanoes!
