Richard P. McCulloh reports that the content presented herein originally was prepared as a contribution to a fall field trip of the New Orleans Geological Society on the subject of southeastern Louisiana surface faults. The trip segment covered by this material focused on the western extent of the Baton Rouge fault in East Baton Rouge Parish, where it transects Holocene strata of the Mississippi River flood plain in addition to the Pleistocene strata that underlie most of Baton Rouge. The field trip was organized by Sherwood M. Gagliano - Coastal Environments, Inc., and Kathy Haggar of Ripari... More →

Published in early 2016 by the Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications (one the National Institutes of Health), this handbook provide credible and current information on the genetic conditions within the human biosystem.

DNA, or deoxyribonucleic acid, is the hereditary material in humans and almost all other organisms. Nearly every cell in a body has the same DNA. Most DNA is located in the cell nucleus (where it is called nuclear DNA), but a small amount of DNA can also be found in the mitochondria (where it is called mitochondrial DNA or mtDNA).

Spaceweather.com published a short report indicating that for the past year, neutron monitors around the Arctic Circle have sensed an increasing intensity of cosmic rays. Polar latitudes are a good place to make such measurements, because the magnetic field funnels and concentrates cosmic radiation there. Turns out, the Earth poles are not the only place cosmic rays are intensifying.

Spaceweather.com and the students of Earth to Sky Calculus have been launching helium balloons to the stratosphere to measure radiation, and they find the same trend over California. A plot of the data ... More →

Feng Hao, of Chinadialogue,Long Di says that part of the China capital is sinking due to decades of groundwater extraction (overpumping). In the China arid north, the natural underground water supply fails to meet the needs of many cities. In Beijing, the country capital, groundwater is pumped up from aquifers deep underground. But over-extraction of water in this region has lowered pumping to the extent that subsidence is now an urgent problem, especially for the residents of Beijing whose water needs are growing the most.

Subsidence is caused by the decline in pressure within the ... More →

Dr. Conca reports says ... No. Nuclear plants are still mostly analog and not connected to the Internet. On purpose. Hackers have been penetrating the computer networks of companies that operate nuclear power stations and other energy facilities, as well as manufacturing plants in the U.S. and other countries. But hackers can not affect a nuclear power plant operations or safety systems.

They can hack some business, personnel and other non-essential files, which may be embarrassing and costly, but not dangerous. These reactors are truly operational islands wholly disconnected from ... More →

We live in an era with unparalleled opportunities to practice disease prevention based on knowledge of the earth environment. Although globally distributed early warning systems can monitor physical hazards such as earthquakes and tsunamis, chemical hazards on the other hand whether actual or potential and natural or anthropogenically induced remain difficult to accurately identify in time and space. Such hazards often have lengthy asymptomatic latency periods before disability or disease becomes evident. The scientific information available from the earth sciences knowledge about earth materi...

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) and many state agencies continue to apply greater efforts to improve pipeline safety and strengthen the national pipeline infrastructure in light of recent well-publicized pipeline failures.

PHMSA is developing more stringent pipeline safety regulations, enforcing its regulations with greater vigor, and imposing ever-increasing penalties. In 2011, Congress amended The Pipeline Safety Act to allow PHMSA to double the fines from $100,000 to $200,000 for a single violation, and from $1 million to $2 million for a relate... More →

Dr. Conca reports that, aside from exposure to the Sun causing skin cancers and to radon causing lung cancer to underground uranium miners who smoke, it is very rare for anyone to be hurt by any dose of radiation. Contrary to the hype and fear pandering by the media on Fukushima, and even Chernobyl, the observable radiation health effects from both accidents were small. In the case of Fukushima, it was as close to zero as one can get. In the case of Chernobyl, although significant, it was still very small.

The reason you might not know this, is that almost everyone uses the wrong m... More →

The Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS) is a program within the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that is responsible for developing toxicologic assessments of environmental contaminants. An IRIS assessment contains hazard identifications and dose-response assessments of various chemicals related to cancer and noncancer outcomes. Although the program was created to increase consistency among toxicologic assessments within the agency, federal, state, and international agencies and other organizations have come to rely on IRIS assessments for setting regulatory standards, establishi...

Michael Riley, et al., reports hackers working for a foreign government recently breached at least a dozen U.S. power plants, including the Wolf Creek nuclear facility in Kansas, according to current and former U.S. officials, sparking concerns the attackers were searching for vulnerabilities in the electrical grid.

The intruders could be positioning themselves to eventually disrupt the national power supply, warned the officials, who noted that a general alert was distributed to utilities a week ago. Adding to those concerns, hackers recently infiltrated an unidentified company tha... More →
