On my blog #3 named Rock the Rhyolite I explained what is Unstable Slope Management Program (USMP) and the purpose and goal of the project. We rated 16 precarious slopes, 15 rockfalls, and only 1 landslide (Fig. 1) with the USMP methodology throughout Chiricahua National...

Hi, everyone! I'm Kassidy, EFTA's writing intern here in Boulder, Colorado. I have been doing some rounds of site visits for our blogs and recently visited Vishva, the Mosaics in Science communication intern at Rocky Mountain National Park. Continue reading to share my experience meeting...

Sonora, México, with Erica Doody and Brooke Kubby (Photo credit, Garcia, 2019). After the webinar on applying to graduate school we had on Tuesday, July 9th, I was inspired by the words of Ricardo Escobar. Indeed, we must treat ourselves and explore the surroundings of our...

(Photo credit, Kubby, 2019). Chiricahua National Monument has an air quality monitoring station that studies visibility and ozone (O3), nitrogen (N) sulfur (S), and ammonia (NH3) concentrations. Every week we collect the data and send the information to associated organizations. Monitoring this data allows the park a better...

Montezuma Pass Wet and dry mapping of the San Pedro River is an initiative of the Nature Conservancy of Southwest Arizona with the added collaboration of citizen volunteers from Mexico, and the Coronado National Memorial employees. The scientists and citizens have worked on this project every...
