From the peer-review process to our very concept of what it means to be brilliant, studies show that women face subtle biases and structural barriers to success in the geosciences.
A new method will help scientists monitor the basal melt of ice sheets in Antarctica.
The shape of deformed sediments at the surface may allow researchers to estimate the cumulative slip along thrust faults such as the Chelungpu fault in Taiwan.
Researchers use satellite data to characterize the physical properties of the lunar wake and the processes that govern it.
Despite favorable conditions within eddies and streamers that form ideal habitats for larval sardines, the young fish may not survive when flushed into the open ocean.
A large earthquake in southern California could devastate Los Angeles. To help reduce the city's risks, one scientist spent last year working in the LA mayor's office.
Models suggest that the shape of river valleys depends strongly on how meandering rivers interact with the sediment and bedrock of the banks.
The well-known ratio between sand ripple spacing and wave-driven flow oscillations may be dictated by flow dynamics downstream of ripple crests.
Models and observations indicate that the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation exhibits surprising short-term variability, driven largely by wind.
Scientists find evidence of ancient copper mining in polluted lake sediments from Isle Royale National Park.
