Science Nation - Invasion of the Earth Worms
By: nsf Invasive species of earth worms have made their way north in the United States and are doing their job too well! They've moved into formerly worm-free forests, which rely on undecayed leaf matter. When worms decompose that leaf layer, the ecology may shift, making it uninhabitable for certain species of trees, ferns and wildflowers. It's of particular concern in the Great Lakes region when anglers simply dump their bait worms back into the soil, creating a difficult environment for old g

Science Bulletins: Hubble's Deepest Look at Space
The new camera that Atlantis astronauts installed on the Hubble Space Telescope last summer has spotted the most distant galaxies ever seen in space. Because these galaxies are so far away, their light has taken billions of years to reach Hubble. That means the telescope sees them as they were billions of years ago.
Science Bulletins: WISE to Scan the Infrared Sky
NASA's latest space telescope-the Wide Field Infrared Explorer, or WISE-recently took its first images of the sky around Earth in infrared light.

12.540 Principles of the Global Positioning System (MIT)
The aim of this course is to introduce the principles of the Global Positioning System and to demonstrate its application to various aspects of Earth Sciences. The specific content of the course depends each year on the interests of the students in the class. In some cases, the class interests are towards the geophysical applications of GPS and we concentrate on high precision (millimeter level) positioning on regional and global scales. In other cases, the interests have been more toward engine
