In ultramafic, reducing environments, forming microbial proteins can actually release energy.
New high-sampling rate measurements of fluid pressures in oceanic crust reveal unresolved fractures and pathways for fluid flow.
Researchers look to the fossil rock record to unearth the driving forces for variable seismic speed through subduction zones.
As river ice cover decreases, the physical and biological changes to river ecosystems vary with the watershed characteristics and river size.
Using new methods, researchers can estimate how much methane is released each day from reservoirs—an important step in estimating global methane emissions.
Researchers uncover how black carbon evolves from hydrophobic particles to cloud nucleation sites, eventually removing the heat-absorbing particles from the sky.
In the contiguous United States, 57% of structures are at risk of experiencing at least one natural hazard—and risk is driven by greater development in hazardous areas against a backdrop of climate change.
Researchers compared the nitrogen removal potential by microbes in ditches that drained forested, urban, and agricultural lands and discovered that roadside ditches are important areas for removing nutrients.
A team of geologists and nursing researchers created an interactive radon hazard map for Kentucky residents—and it was possible only because of the high-resolution bedrock mapping in the state.
