Alethea Steingisser completed her Master’s in Geography at the University of Oregon in Eugene in 2006. She is also a professional ne art photographer who focuses much of her work on the natural environment. Her photos have appeared in calendars and magazines and in several gallery showings. She currently works for the University of Oregon as the lead car- tographic designer on the upcoming Atlas of Yellowstone. The atlas is a collaborative project among the University of Oregon, the National Park Service, and Greater Yellowstone Area researchers.
W. Andrew Marcus is a professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Oregon, where he has resided since 2001. Prior to that he was a faculty member in the Department of Earth Sciences at Montana State University. He began his research in Yellowstone National Park in 1991 with studies of how mining, res, and oods have affected stream and riparian habitats along Soda Butte, Cache, and Pebble creeks. Later work examined ways in which remote sens- ing imagery can be used to map, monitor, and model these systems. More recently, Marcus has been one of the lead editors of the Atlas of Yellowstone.
