Wildfires and the caribou population are the subject of a new study released by the University of Alaska Fairbanks and the US Geological Survey.  KDLG’s Chase Cavanaugh has more on the data and its implications.

The US Geological Survey is attempting to gather data that will show what beaches on the East and West coast looked like 150 years ago and how vulnerable an area is to a hurricane or tsunami.  The technology the USGS is using will help protect the millions of Americans at risk of a change in sea level and retreating shorelines.
