Tener en cuenta el efecto burbuja podría mejorar las estimaciones sobre el deshielo de los glaciares submarinos y prever mejor su contracción a medida que se calientan los océanos.
In a controlled experiment, researchers diverted wastewater from an advanced treatment facility into a healthy stream and monitored the unfolding ecological effects.
Accounting for the newfound bubble effect could improve estimates of how sea-terminating glaciers melt underwater—and better anticipate their shrinkage as oceans warm.
A method typically used to date sediments shows promise for documenting tropical storms through history—information needed for future projections of storm activity.
In February, a devastating magnitude 7.8 earthquake struck the eastern Mediterranean, triggering a second major jolt and a cascade of aftershocks.
A NASA-funded crowdsourced science project has converted the unheard sounds resonating inside Earth’s magnetic shield into audible tracks, revealing an orchestra of whistles, wooshes, and chirps.
Projected changes to El Niño will likely accelerate warming of the deep oceans around the Antarctic, supplying heat that could drive ice loss and sea level rise.
A new model considers the full history of earthquakes on a fault, improving forecasts of when the next will strike.
Borneo’s logged forests are buzzing with life and have unrealized conservation potential.
The NASA-funded project is asking sky gazers, storm chasers, and scientists to capture photos of sprites and other optical phenomena that flash above thunderclouds after a lightning strike.
