Ice Age climate swings shaped the equatorial basin’s terrain—and possibly its ecology—faster than previously thought.
A study of 369 lakes across the Midwest finds that many of them, especially those close to agriculture, have high concentrations of harmful algal bloom-causing cyanobacteria.
Coastal wind patterns correlate with mass strandings of dolphins, suggesting that storm-induced upwelling could be influencing cetaceans’ behavior.
Widespread remote work may have kept air pollution lower than pre-COVID-19 lockdown levels even though restrictions were lifted in 2020, a new study finds.
The geologic record suggests that despite Earth’s hot, thin crust during the Proterozoic, mountains were still able to form thanks to an extinct style of crustal deformation.
A new study found that the Jehol Biota had chilly temperatures and high altitudes when feathered dinosaurs roamed the slopes.
Hail causes huge financial losses worldwide every year. But we still can’t predict when hail will strike. Climate scientists from around the world are teaming up to figure out how to change that.
Arctic biologists use 25 years of data to find that warmer autumns might be enough to increase the odds of reindeer’s winter survival on Svalbard.
