Major volcanic eruptions can have a significant effect on the flow of the biggest rivers around the world, research shows.
NASA confirms evidence that liquid water flows on today's Mars (Update)
New findings from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) provide the strongest evidence yet that liquid water flows intermittently on present-day Mars.
Simulating path of 'magma mush' inside an active volcano
Months of warning signs from Mauna Loa, on Hawaii's Big Island, prompted the U.S. Geological Society to recently start releasing weekly updates on activity at the world's largest active volcano.
Scientists simulate Earth's middle crust to understand earthquakes
Researchers have for the first time been able to measure a material's resistance to fracturing from various types of tectonic motions in the Earth's middle crust, a discovery that may lead to better understanding of how large ...
Ancient dirt churners took their time stirring up the ocean floor
Earth's early burrowers were slow to discover the bottom of the ocean as a good place to kick up dirt.
Ocean circulation rethink solves climate conundrum
Researchers from the University of Exeter believe they have solved one of the biggest puzzles in climate science. The new study, published in Nature Geoscience, explains the synchrony observed during glacial periods when ...
Scientists solve deep ocean carbon riddle
New research involving scientists from University of Southampton and the National Oceanography Centre Southampton (NOCS) has identified a crucial process behind the reason why dissolved organic carbon (DOC) levels in the ...
El Nino and La Nina will exacerbate coastal hazards across entire Pacific
The projected upsurge of severe El Niño and La Niña events will cause an increase in storm events leading to extreme coastal flooding and erosion in populated regions across the Pacific Ocean, according to a multi-agency ...
Mars water find boosts quest for extra-terrestrial life
The search for extra-terrestrial life just got a big boost from NASA's stunning announcement that it now has its strongest evidence yet of liquid water on Mars.
Earth science offers key to many United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
A group of ecologists at Oregon State University argue that scientific "business as usual" will fall far short of what is needed to achieve the 17 Sustainable Development Goals that are expected to be adopted by the United ...
