Geoinformatics use in soil erosion

Sensitivity of soil erosion is the representative of the possibility of occurring soil erosion under natural conditions. Sensitivity evaluation of soil erosion is the reliable method to identify the highly sensitivity areas and evaluate the sensitivity degree in a particular area. This paper uses the revised universal soil loss equation (RUSLE) and GIS technique which has powerful space analysis functions for extracting the factors of soil erosion, making thematic maps and building the model to research the sensitivity of soil erosion in Jixi County. According to the characteristics of geography in study area, the key sensitivity factors of the soil erosion were defined, which include rainfall erosivity factor, soil erodibility factor, slope factor and vegetation cover factor. The aim of the article is to explore the space distribution characteristics of soil erosion in Jixi County.

Anything new about stirling engines in Cal?

Looking for an update. Everything I find from google news is almost a year old. This is from the stirling engine deal with Southern Edison to build a 500MW plant outside of LA.
What geographical areas are best suited for a solar dish farm?
The southwest region of the United States is ideally suited for this. In fact, a solar farm 100 miles by 100 miles could satisfy 100% of the America’s annual electrical needs. Solar technology primarily addresses the peak power demands facing utility companies in the Southwest U.S. and other solar-rich areas.

Depends

by tlbrink

The cost of living and job markets are better than the national average, but the best job strategy is not to go for averages, but look at your specific skills and experiences, figure out which careers that relates to, and then go to that geographical area:
technology - Silicon Valley
finance - New York
There are other factors to consider. How important are mountains? the ocean? good weather? I have met many midwesterners in Acapulco during the winter, and none ever told me
"I got to get back to Omaha. I just miss those snow covered plains."

4,000 Year Old Greenlander

by BurpBoohickie

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Scientists have sequenced the DNA from four frozen hairs of a Greenlander who died 4,000 years ago in a study they say takes genetic technology into several new realms.
Surprisingly, the long-dead man appears to have originated in Siberia and is unrelated to modern Greenlanders, Morten Rasmussen of the University of Copenhagen and colleagues found.
"This provides evidence for a migration from Siberia into the New World some 5,500 years ago, independent of that giving rise to the modern Native Americans and Inuit," the researchers wrote in Thursday's issue of the journal Nature
