News about Scientific Misconduct

UPDATE: On January 18, 2015, Newsweek reported the NPS/USGS data falsification in this blockbuster story. The story puts scientist Brent Stewart on the record about the falsification of his data:

“Stewart discovered that his findings had been altered and that the study reached conclusions his research directly contradicted. ‘It’s clear that what I provided to them and what they produced were different conclusions and different values,’ says Stewart. ‘In science, you shouldn’t do that.’ “

On May 13, 2013, Dr. Corey Goodman filed a scientific misconduct complaint with Interior Secretary Jewell. The complaint, based in part on new information made available that week via the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), shows that the National Park Service and the U.S. Geological Survey falsified scientific evidence. The falsified data was used in the NPS Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) to support allegations that the oyster farm disturbs seals. So far, the complaint has not been addressed.
