Scientists from Nepal, Switzerland and Germany were able to show how erosion processes caused by the monsoon are mirrored in the sediment load of a river crossing the Himalayas.
A team of international scientists, including Dr Kate Littler from the University of Exeter, are investigating how the annual monsoon has responded to cyclical changes in Earth's climate over the last 8 million years.
New research has shown that the Asian monsoon rains played a key role in the evolution of mammals.
When the research vessel JOIDES Resolution returned to port in late January after a two-month cruise, it had harvested more than 550 sediment cores from deep beneath the Indian Ocean. Locked within those tubes of muck is ...
Think of the Sahara and you will conjure images of a vast desert landscape, with nothing but sand as far as the eye can see. But for a period of about 10,000 years, the Sahara was characterized by lush, green vegetation and ...
This year's Southwest monsoon season will be remembered for unusually intense storms that brought months' worth of rain in just one day.
Emissions produced by human activity have caused annual monsoon rainfall to decline over the past 50 years, a study suggests.
The Asian monsoon already existed 40 million years ago during a period of high atmospheric carbon dioxide and warmer temperatures, reports an international research team led by a University of Arizona geoscientist.
(Phys.org) —Scientists at the University of Bristol's Cabot Institute have shown how changes in the Asian monsoon affected emissions of methane, a prominent greenhouse gas, from the Tibetan Plateau.
For the first time, methane emissions by ebullition from tropical reservoirs have been accurately quantified, revealing that this emission pathway depends on both the water level in the reservoir, which is dependent on the ...
