    ‘Dark ecology project’ will use past weather radar data to trace bird migrations

    Original @ Phys.org – latest science and technology news stories Every spring and fall, billions of birds migrate across the United States, largely unseen under the cover of darkness. Now a team of researchers led by computer scientist Daniel Sheldon at the University of Massachusetts Amherst plan to develop new analytic methods with data collected over the past 20 years—more than 200 million archived radar scans from the national weather radar network—to provide powerful new tools for tracking migration. [...]

    Research calls for enhancing long-term benefits of Farm Bill programs
