Developing tools to image the Earth in 3D using gravity and magnetic fields - Anjana Shah

Develop cutting-edge computational tools that provide 3D views of Earth’s crust using gravity and magnetic fields. Results of these efforts will have a wide range of applications from mapping natural resources to evaluating natural hazards. These tools will be applied to airborne geophysical data, especially those collected for the USGS Earth MRI effort.

Modeling invasion risk and impacts to inform management responses - Helen Sofaer

Where are invasive species likely to be introduced or become abundant? How should managers respond? On Hawaii and other Pacific Islands numerous invasive species have altered ecosystems, and new species continue to be introduced. Statistical analyses can characterize risk and inform response strategies.

Towards Near Surface Ground Motion Characterization in Oklahoma and Texas through Active- and Passive-Seismic Site Characterization- Alan Yong

Earthquakes, such as the 2011 M5.7 Prague, Oklahoma, and recent northern Texas M4 event, demonstrate the need for improvedunderstanding of site amplification and seismic hazards in the central United States. The intern will be trained by USGS scientists to use the state-of-the-art site investigation methods at seismic station sites in California before applying the methods in Oklahoma and Texas.

Water Withdrawal Footprint Visualizations- Daniel Goode

Decision makers, water use stakeholders, and the public at large need intuitive visualizations of the status and trends in water use in order to make wise management decisions. How can we best turn newly available details on water use in the US into geospatial information that can be easily understood, without biasing that information. Help us create maps that make our water use data come alive.

The influence of preferential flow on water and solute fluxes in the unsaturated zone- John Nimmo

Much unsaturated-zone water moves not as typically slow diffuse flow, but rapidly through preferential flow channels such as root holes and fractures. Impacts are profound and far-reaching for issues such as contaminant transport, ecohydrology, and aquifer recharge. Understanding is limited and accepted theory is lacking, making preferential flow a crucial and exciting area of earth science.

Models of high-dimensional environmental or ecological data- Brian Gray

An opportunity to work with models of multivariate environmental and ecological processes from either a mathematical/statistical or scientific focus. The former would focus on elaborating current methods for making inferences or predictions from multivariate data while the latter would focus on using those current methods to better understand multivariate environmental or ecological processes.

Incorporating Citizen Science to improve Biodiversity Knowledge- Toni Lyn Morelli

We are inviting you to participate in an exciting project that brings together citizen science data from iNaturalist and other online platforms to improve currently static biodiversity databases. This project will ultimately identify invasive species, taxonomy changes, and potential climate migrants that will aid conservation efforts on public lands.
