AEG Professional Forum on Landslides held in Seattle
AEG
AEG and the University of Washington Earth & Space Sciences (UW ESS) hosted over 200 geologists, engineers, planners, emergency managers, students and others from public, private and academic employers. Twenty-two speakers and 15 poster presenters shared their experiences and knowledge in the UW South Campus Center.

Forum co-organizers, Mark Molinari and Kathy Troost kicked off the meeting by reminding attendees the key goal — assessing how we can better protect public health, safety and infrastructure through better collaboration and communication.

Search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 has revealed a lot about the Indian Ocean
The Sydney Morning Herald
VideoBrief The search for the missing MH370 aircraft has scoured the depths of the Indian Ocean for almost a year and found no trace of the plane. While this must be heartbreaking for victims' loved ones, the search has yielded many discoveries about a part of the deep ocean scientists knew very little about.

Detailed mapping has revealed mountains as high as Mount Kosciuszko, canyons the size of the Grand Canyon and a never before seen 34-kilometer-long undersea ridge.

Volcano monitors proposed for Mount Hood, a 'very high-threat' volcano
The Oregonian
The U.S. Geological Survey and the Cascades Volcano Observatory hope to install four volcano monitoring stations on the upper flanks of Mount Hood. Scientists say that although it's not erupting, Mount Hood signals that it is an active volcano. Oregon's signature peak produces frequent earthquakes, and steam and volcanic gases are emitted in the area around Crater Rock near the summit. The proposed stations would enhance scientists' ability to detect subtle signals beneath the volcano and help determine whether it poses any threat of imminent eruption.
