The past shows how abrupt climate shifts affect Earth
New research shows how past abrupt climatic changes in the North Atlantic propagated globally. The study, led by researchers from Centre for Ice and Climate at the University of Copenhagen's Niels Bohr Institute, shows how ...
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.
Curiosity finds rocks that might point to a continental crust on Mars
Research may solve lunar fire fountain mystery
Tiny beads of volcanic glass found on the lunar surface during the Apollo missions are a sign that fire fountain eruptions took place on the Moon's surface. Now, scientists from Brown University and the Carnegie Institution ...
Study: Are we shifting to fewer, weaker Atlantic hurricanes?
A new but controversial study asks if an end is coming to the busy Atlantic hurricane seasons of recent decades.
Small thunderstorms may add up to massive cyclones on Saturn
For the last decade, astronomers have observed curious "hotspots" on Saturn's poles. In 2008, NASA's Cassini spacecraft beamed back close-up images of these hotspots, revealing them to be immense cyclones, each as wide as ...
Radioisotope studies show the continental crust formed 3 billion years ago
Source of Northwest's next big quake mapped
A large team of scientists has nearly completed the first map of the mantle under the tectonic plate that is colliding with the Pacific Northwest and putting Seattle, Portland and Vancouver at risk of the largest earthquakes ...
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 ...
