The addition of new sediment helps build up lowland environments like deltas and marshes, but it also compacts materials beneath it—a vital, but often overlooked, factor in landscape evolution studies.
Image pairs indicate that 99% of the planet’s surface could be altered in the next 25 million years.
Terrestrial electron antineutrino observations provide new constraints on the contributions of radiogenic heat in the mantle.
Intrinsic dimensionality can quantify the level of information obtainable for various possible instrument configurations.
Earthquakes as deep as 50 kilometers below the seafloor were detected by 12 ocean bottom seismometers placed around the Challenger Deep.
In a new model, three substantial atmospheric layers appear consistent between the ice giants.
The internal hydraulic properties of plants are difficult to measure but may be inferred from observable sap flow.
The first seismic observations from Mars significantly reduce uncertainty in estimates of the Red Planet’s crustal structure.
MESSENGER observations show a 50% rise in atmospheric sodium-group ions during periods of high solar wind activity.
