How to interact with map

Welcome to the EarthScope Science Nuggets Webmap! This interactive map features research and education projects based on data from thousands of seismic, GPS, and other geophysical instruments deployed across the U.S between 2003 and 2018. These summaries highlight the breadth of research supported by the EarthScope program to explore the structure and evolution of the North American continent.

How Does it Work?
Each point on the map represents a project profile.
Select one or more topics in the “Filter Results” box to view relevant projects. "Large-scale Projects" cover 4 or more states; the project summary describes the geographic range.
If you want to dig deeper, click the “Science” tab at top of the summary for a more detailed scientific account, researcher names, grant information, links to references, and more.
