    Dear Brian,
    I hope this email finds you well. I contact you because I have been following your blogs at NatGeo, and I personally have a story that has attracted some attention of the connection between cloud forests and the effectiveness of dams across the tropics. The blog and press releases are from a paper I recently published on the International Journal of Ecosystem services and from a follow up paper that will be published this month in the international journal on hydro-power and dams. The blog has had a lot of attention and has several ping backs from other forests and ecosystem services blogs.

    I copy the blog and press releases in case the information was interesting to be linked from water currents or other blogs at NatGeo.

    Best wishes, Leonardo

    I know a couple of years ago you documented what is known as Earthquake lights. There is a place in northern Alabama where Earthlights are routinely seen. Very similar if not identical to those in Hassdalen, Norway. These earthlights are large pulsating orbs. I have seen them many times myself along with friends. They are seen frequently and because (I assume piezoelectric in nature) they are seen in the exact same location. If interested can provide details. They really are remarkable to watch. Friends and I use the for the last few years use the same field to view them. They appear at ground level first and then always increase elevation and travel at the same elevation and same “path.” Not like Marfa Texas lights or brown mountain that are far away.
