USGS Collaborates with U.S. Naval Research Laboratory: USGS oceanographer Elijah Ramsey and IAPWS contractor Amina Rangoonwalla recently completed their third year of ground-based data collection and analyses of the barrier islands along the Virginia part of the Delmarva Peninsula. This fieldwork was important to validate the airborne remote sensing image data collections done by the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory (NRL), Washington, D.C. The NRL collaborator was Dr. Charles Bachmann. In conjunction with NRL, Ramsey and Rangoonwalla also worked with Robert Christian of East Carolina University to help determine the extent of marsh dieback at a Long Term Ecological Research Site on the Delmarva Peninsula.

USGS Scientist Serves on AAAS Panel: USGS oceanographer Elijah Ramsey was invited by Dr. Shirley Malcom of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) to serve on the review panel for the 2006 Canon National Parks Science Scholars Program. The program is a collaboration among Canon U.S.A., Inc., AAAS and the U.S. National Park Service. The panel, which met in Washington, D. C. in early August, reviewed research proposals in the biological, physical, social, cultural, and a new category of technology innovation in support of conservation science. The review team selected eight Ph.D. students from throughout the Americas to receive scholarships of $80,000 to conduct research critical to conserving the national parks of the region.
