Icebergs once drifted to Florida, new climate model suggests
Using a first-of-its-kind, high-resolution numerical model to describe ocean circulation during the last ice age about 21,000 year ago, oceanographer Alan Condron of the University of Massachusetts Amherst ...
Geologists find well water chemicals changed prior to two different earthquakes
Over 500 gas plumes found to be bubbling up in the ocean along the eastern US coast
Study finds possible link between Arctic change and extreme mid-latitude weather
2010 Chilean earthquake causes icequakes in Antarctica
Seismic events aren't rare occurrences on Antarctica, where sections of the frozen desert can experience hundreds of micro-earthquakes an hour due to ice deformation. Some scientists call them icequakes. ...
Computer model shows moon's core surrounded by liquid and it's caused by Earth's gravity
Researchers figure out how oddly shaped sandstone landform structures come about
Australia drying caused by greenhouse gases and ozone
NOAA scientists have developed a new high-resolution climate model that shows southwestern Australia's long-term decline in fall and winter rainfall is caused by increases in manmade greenhouse gas emissions ...
Simulations show Mercury may have been victim of hit-and-run collision
Hot tropical oceans during Pliocene greenhouse warming
The impact of the greenhouse gas CO2 on the Earth's temperature is well established by climate models and temperature records over the past 100 years, as well as coupled records of carbon dioxide concentration ...
Mysterious 'Magic Island' appears on Saturn's moon Titan
Now you don't see it. Now, you do. And now you don't see it again. Astronomers have discovered a bright, mysterious geologic object – where one never existed – on Cassini mission radar images of Ligeia ...
Warming climates intensify greenhouse gas given out by oceans
Rising global temperatures could increase the amount of carbon dioxide naturally released by the world's oceans, fuelling further climate change, a study suggests.
Lunar rock samples reveal variations in water concentrations
Buried fossil soils found to be awash in carbon
Soils that formed on the Earth's surface thousands of years ago and that are now deeply buried features of vanished landscapes have been found to be rich in carbon, adding a new dimension to our planet's ...
