Nature Geoscience is a monthly multi-disciplinary journal aimed at bringing together top-quality research across the entire spectrum of the Earth Sciences along with relevant work in related areas. The journal's content reflects all the disciplines within the geosciences, encompassing field work, modelling and theoretical studies.
Study shows lower ozone pollution in Sao Paulo when drivers switched from ethanol to gasoline
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.
Sampling study suggests Mississippi River has ample sand to prevent delta land loss
Salt marsh plants key to reducing coastal erosion and flooding
(Phys.org) —The effectiveness of salt marshes – wetlands which are flooded and drained by tides – in protecting coastal areas in times of severe weather has been quantified in a study by researchers from the University ...
Solar dimming caused by air pollution increases river-flows
A study published in Nature Geoscience shows that air pollution has had a significant impact on the amount of water flowing through many rivers in the northern hemisphere.
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.
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.
Oldest bit of crust firms up idea of a cool early Earth
With the help of a tiny fragment of zircon extracted from a remote rock outcrop in Australia, the picture of how our planet became habitable to life about 4.4 billion years ago is coming into sharper focus.
Measuring oxygen concentrations in sea water in the remote past
It is possible to measure oxygen concentrations in sea water in the remote past, a study published this month in Nature Geoscience demonstrates.
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 air and strengthening ...
