Geologists Provide New Evidence for Reason Behind Rise of Life in Cambrian Period
Geologists have uncovered evidence in the oil fields of Oman that explains how Earth could suddenly have changed 540 million years ago to favor the evolution of the single-celled life forms to the multicellular forms we know ...
Researchers find new information about Earth's origins
Two Dartmouth researchers have learned more about the origins and makeup of the solar nebula, the large gaseous cloud thought to have spawned the solar system. Mukul Sharma, assistant professor of Earth sciences, ...
Planet Earth may have 'tilted' to keep its balance
Imagine a shift in the Earth so profound that it could force our entire planet to spin on its side after a few million years, tilting it so far that Alaska would sit at the equator. Princeton scientists have ...
Researchers figure out how oddly shaped sandstone landform structures come about
Study finds order in the apparent randomness of Earth's evolving landscape
(Phys.org) —As we all know, water runs downhill, forming channels and branched networks as it flows. It's been that way forever. But, believe it or not, scientists' understanding of these networks hasn't ...
Australia drying caused by greenhouse gases and ozone
NOAA scientists have developed a new high-resolution climate model that shows southwestern Australia's long-term decline in fall and winter rainfall is caused by increases in manmade greenhouse gas emissions ...
Researchers find evidence of super-fast deep earthquake
As scientists learn more about earthquakes that rupture at fault zones near the planet's surface—and the mechanisms that trigger them—an even more intriguing earthquake mystery lies deeper in the planet.
Coastal winds intensifying with climate change, study says
Summer winds are intensifying along the west coasts of North and South America and southern Africa and climate change is a likely cause, a new study says.
Hot tropical oceans during Pliocene greenhouse warming
The impact of the greenhouse gas CO2 on the Earth's temperature is well established by climate models and temperature records over the past 100 years, as well as coupled records of carbon dioxide concentration ...
