Nature Geoscience is a monthly, peer reviewed, scientific journal published by Nature Publishing Group. The Chief Editor is Heike Langenberg. The first issue was published in January 2008. The focus of this journal is all theoretical research, modelling, and field work, pertaining to the earth sciences. Significant, related work in other fields that are applicable to this journal s focus are also published. Broad topical coverage includes Atmospheric science, Geology, Geophysics, Climate science, Oceanography, Palaeontology, and the Space sciences. This journal is indexed by the following services:
Mars' halcyon times may have been fleeting
Cold and dry today, Mars was previously warm and wet but possibly only at intervals, a study published on Sunday suggests.
Researchers decipher climate paradox from the Miocene
Scientists of the German Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI), have deciphered a supposed climate paradox from the Miocene era by means of complex model simulations. ...
New model reveals multiple compositional components of Earth's deep mantle being carried up to the surface
Seeking to better understand the composition of the lowermost part of Earth's mantle, located nearly 2,900 kilometers (1,800 miles) below the surface, a team of Arizona State University researchers has developed ...
Study suggests autumn Arctic sea ice can be used to predict European winter weather
Off-rift volcanoes explained
Volcanoes often develop outside the rift zone in an apparently unexpected location offset by tens of kilometers has remained unanswered. An international team of scientists has shown that the pattern of stresses ...
Climatologists offer explanation for widening of tropical belt
(Phys.org) —Recent studies have shown that the Earth's tropical belt—demarcated, roughly, by the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn—has progressively expanded since at least the late 1970s. Several explanations ...
Southern Ocean iron cycle gives new insight into climate change
An international team of researchers analyzed the available data taken from all previous studies of the Southern Ocean, together with satellite images taken of the area, to quantify the amount of iron supplied ...
Mercury contracted more than prior estimates, evidence shows
New evidence gathered by NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft at Mercury indicates the planet closest to the sun has shrunk up to 7 kilometers in radius over the past 4 billion years, much more than earlier estimates.
Dust kicked up in Asia strengthens Indian monsoon within a week
A new analysis of satellite data reveals a link between dust in North Africa and West Asia and stronger monsoons in India. The study shows that dust in the air absorbs sunlight west of India, warming the ...
UCLA study yields more accurate data on thousands of years of climate change
Using a cutting-edge research technique, UCLA researchers have reconstructed the temperature history of a region that plays a major role in determining climate around the world.
Dinosaur-killing impact acidified oceans: study
The space rock that smashed into Earth 65 million years ago, famously wiping out the dinosaurs, unleashed acid rain that turned the ocean surface into a witches' brew, researchers said Sunday.
First animals oxygenated the ocean, research suggests
The evolution of the first animals may have oxygenated the earth's oceans – contrary to the traditional view that a rise in oxygen triggered their development.
Sun's energy influences 1,000 years of natural climate variability in North Atlantic
Changes in the sun's energy output may have led to marked natural climate change in Europe over the last 1000 years, according to researchers at Cardiff University.
Study reveals four new man-made gases in the atmosphere
Scientists at the University of East Anglia have identified four new man-made gases in the atmosphere – all of which are contributing to the destruction of the ozone layer.
Study suggests non-uniform climate warming affects terrestrial carbon cycle, ecosystems and future predictions
A recent University of Oklahoma study of five decades of satellite data, model simulations and in situ observations suggests the impact of seasonal diurnal or daily warming varies between global regions affecting ...
