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 ...
Satellite data shows livestock emitted more methane than oil and gas industry in 2004
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.
Discovery provides insights on how plants respond to elevated CO2 levels
Biologists at UC San Diego have solved a long-standing mystery concerning the way plants reduce the numbers of their breathing pores in response to rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere.
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 ...
Mesoscale eddies found to move far more ocean water than previously thought
Study links Greenland ice sheet collapse, sea level rise 400,000 years ago
A new study suggests that a warming period more than 400,000 years ago pushed the Greenland ice sheet past its stability threshold, resulting in a nearly complete deglaciation of southern Greenland and raising ...
Study shows nonlinear pattern of migration due to climatic variations
New study suggests more and longer atmospheric stagnation events due to global warming
Has Antarctic sea ice expansion been overestimated?
New research suggests that Antarctic sea ice may not be expanding as fast as previously thought. A team of scientists say much of the increase measured for Southern Hemisphere sea ice could be due to a processing ...
