Making Europe sweat
In 2003, Europe experienced a record-breaking summer, and many people feel that this summer is headed the same way. In the midst of this heatwave, the scientific journal Nature Geoscience has published a study that can help ...
Weathering and river discharge surprisingly constant during Ice Age cycles
Over geologic time, the work of rain and other processes that chemically dissolve rocks into constituent molecules that wash out to sea can diminish mountains and reshape continents.
Earthquake not to blame for Indonesian mud volcano
New research led by the University of Adelaide hopes to close the debate on whether a major mud volcano disaster in Indonesia was triggered by an earthquake or had man-made origins.
Understanding the softness in Earth's lithosphere
Yale researchers have proposed a new model to explain the drop in elastic stiffness in the middle of the Earth's continental lithosphere.
The island Isla Santa María in the south of central Chile is the document of a complete seismic cycle.
Large igneous provinces associated with mid-ocean ridges
Lip reading normally involves deciphering speech patterns, movements, gestures and expressions just by watching a person speak. Planet Earth has LIPS, too - they are an acronym for large igneous provinces, huge accumulations ...
Location matters in the lowland Amazon
You know the old saying: Location, location, location? It turns out that it applies to the Amazon rainforest, too. New work from Carnegie's Greg Asner illustrates a hidden tapestry of chemical variation across the lowland ...
Scientists discover elusive secret of how continents formed
An international research team, led by a Virginia Tech geoscientist, has revealed information about how continents were generated on Earth more than 2.5 billion years ago—and how those processes have continued within the ...
Moist explanation for Saturn's Great White Spots
Once every 20 or 30 years, a superstorm greater than Earth breaks out on Saturn and whips around the ringed planet in a violent spectacle that rages for months on end.
Western Canada to lose 70 percent of glaciers by 2100
Seventy per cent of glacier ice in British Columbia and Alberta could disappear by the end of the 21st century, creating major problems for local ecosystems, power supplies, and water quality, according to a new study by ...
