Scientists took a deeper look at a 70-year-old slide and found that climate change likely set the stage for the disaster.
Drones Make Weather Prediction Easier at the Poles
Researchers measured wind speed with a commercially available drone and a lightweight sensor. The approach could help scientists gather more data from remote environments.
Could “Lost Crops” Help Us Adapt to Climate Change?
Archaeology might not solve all the agricultural challenges that climate change will bring, but it could provide important lessons and a record of new ideas.
Traditional Fertilizers Beat Out Industrial Chemicals in Soil Health Test
New research in western India found that fertilizer based on Traditional Ecological Knowledge made soil more fertile in a head-to-head test with industrial fertilizers.
How Does Sand Move? New Observations Challenge Prevailing Formulas
Research in the Azores finds a discrepancy between field observations of sediment transport and predictions made with commonly used mathematical formulas.
Clever Wood Use Could Mitigate Wildfires and Climate Change
California plans to use forest thinning to reduce wildfire risk. New research suggests the state could also see a climate benefit by repurposing waste wood produced by thinning.
When Wild Weather Blew Old Sea Ice South
Last winter, an unprecedented high-pressure system over the Arctic drove nearly a quarter of old sea ice into warmer waters, putting it at greater risk of melting.
Tropical Climate Change Is a Puzzle—Could Aerosols Be a Piece?
The eastern tropical Pacific Ocean hasn’t warmed as much as climate change models projected. A new study shows that aerosols in the atmosphere could be responsible.
An Iceberg May Have Initiated a Submarine Landslide
A new study shows that icebergs may initiate submarine landslides when they collide with the seafloor.
U.S. Data Centers Rely on Water from Stressed Basins
Researchers mapped the environmental footprint of data centers, shedding light on how and where the industry can improve.
