Experts say nature-based mitigation strategies and investment in renewables could reduce both indoor and outdoor air pollution and stimulate sustainable and safe growth.
By reviewing 44 studies, researchers make a scientific case for regulating agricultural pollution of streams and rivers by implementing conservation practices, including riparian buffer zones.
Poor infrastructure is responsible for tens of thousands of pharmaceutical doses that flow through Baltimore’s streams each year.
If climate change throws off the seasonal freeze-thaw cycle of Arctic sea ice, it could trigger a reinforcing cycle of sea ice melt in parts of the Canadian Arctic.
Typical paleomagnetic measurements average a sample’s signal. The quantum diamond microscope helps scientists make micrometer-scale maps of magnetism, showing where a sample locked in its magnetic signatures.
Mexico City is one of the most disaster-prone urban areas in the world. Following an earthquake, marginalized communities living on the city’s periphery are exposed to more dangers than just collapsing buildings.
A new study finds that Mars’s mantle is neon-rich, putting constraints on the planet’s formation history.
The Science Panel for the Amazon prepares to launch its first report, the most comprehensive document on the rain forest so far.
Shrubs and trees across the United States routinely sip water stored in bedrock, a discovery that has implications for the terrestrial water cycle.
Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy is a versatile geochemical tool being used in a wide range of applications, from Mars rovers to earthly rock identification.
