Geology is a publication of the Geological Society of America (GSA). The GSA claims that it is the most widely read scientific journal in the field of earth science. It is published monthly, with each issue containing 20 or more articles, and an annual total of 1166 pages. One of the goals of the journal is to provide a forum for shorter articles and less focus on pure academic research type articles.
Fossil leaves from Africa have resolved a prehistoric climate puzzle—and also confirm the link between carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and global warming.

Curtin University planetary scientists have shed some light on the evolution of asteroids, which may help prevent future collisions of an incoming 'rubble pile' asteroid with Earth.
Scientists may be closer to solving the mystery of how Mars changed from a world with surface water billions of years ago to the arid Red Planet of today.
Scientists from the University of Sydney's School of Geosciences have led the creation of the world's first digital map of the seafloor's geology.
Repeatedly throughout Earth's history, giant pools of magma greater than 100 cubic miles in volume have formed a few miles below the surface.
Conifers that were living at the South Pole show an extreme adaptation to forest fires.
