It looks like the earth is breathing. The land beneath Southern California appears to rise and fall in two animated graphics created by geophysicists at Caltech. Researchers recently analyzed satellite radar data in order to better understand the effects of groundwater extraction and replenishment on the land. Their findings reveal

Job Site Support Equipment

Grading and excavating sites typically bring to mind big iron, but it also takes a lot of support equipment to complete a job—and even to begin one. The typical job site is home to job trailers for the foreman’s office long before utilities arrive. Trailers are filled with power-hungry systems.
