New computer model may explain moon Europa's chaotic terrain
Indian Ocean phenomenon helping to predict extreme weather
A phenomenon in the Indian Ocean that affects events in southeast Australia is helping to predict extreme weather up to six months in advance.
Researchers find significant amount of methane escaping East Siberian Arctic Shelf
Unusual greenhouse gases may have raised ancient Martian temperature
Much like the Grand Canyon, Nanedi Valles snakes across the Martian surface suggesting that liquid water once crossed the landscape, according to a team of researchers who believe that molecular hydrogen ...
The overprotection of Mars?
A recent commentary paper published in the journal Nature Geoscience argues that planetary protection policies and practices designed to guard solar system bodies from biological contamination from spacec ...
Evidence found for granite on Mars
Researchers now have stronger evidence of granite on Mars and a new theory for how the granite – an igneous rock common on Earth—could have formed there, according to a new study. The findings suggest ...
Oxygen, phosphorous and early life on Earth
Two billion years ago the Earth system was recovering from perhaps the single-most profound modification of its surface environments: the oxygenation of the atmosphere and oceans. This led to a series of major changes in ...
Volcano discovered smoldering under a kilometer of ice in West Antarctica
It wasn't what they were looking for but that only made the discovery all the more exciting.
Life may have arrived from space
New research shows that organic molecules, on which life is based, can survive the impact from a meteorite.
Ozone pact helped cool the planet, study reports
A slowdown in global warming that climate sceptics cite in favour of their cause was partly induced by one of the world's most successful environment treaties, a study said on Sunday.
Study links earthquake faults to slow-moving depths
(Phys.org) —Most earthquakes erupt suddenly from faults near Earth's surface, and the big ones can topple cities. But miles below, rocks heated to the consistency of wax moving over thousands to millions ...
Looking for a new gold mine? We've got the map
As published this month in Nature Geoscience, researchers and industry partners have produced the first major 'cat scan of the earth'. Their work reveals a new chart of the sub-continental lithosphere mantle ...
How to foresee US heat waves
Scientists have fingerprinted a distinctive atmospheric wave pattern high above the Northern Hemisphere that can foreshadow the emergence of summertime heat waves in the United States more than two weeks ...
Global ocean currents explain why Northern Hemisphere is the soggier one
A quick glance at a world precipitation map shows that most tropical rain falls in the Northern Hemisphere. The Palmyra Atoll, at 6 degrees north, gets 175 inches of rain a year, while an equal distance on ...
