MARINE CORPS AIR STATION MIRAMAR, CA, UNITED STATES
A ruler stands secured to a pole over a vernal pool in a fenced in area aboard Marine Corps Air Station Miramar, Calif., Jan. 22. Rulers like this are used to measure the depth of vernal pools where two endangered species of fairy shrimp can be found. Without water, the fairy shrimp lay dormant in the ground until the pool fills again.
