Climate modeling predicts that conditions conducive to severe thunderstorms will arise more often as Earth warms.
A new analysis suggests that models do not accurately capture how fresh Arctic surface waters mix with deeper waters, contributing to underestimation of Arctic surface freshening.
When tiny particles enter Earth’s atmosphere, a newly described series of chemical reactions may lead to production of phosphorus-containing molecules that are essential for biological processes.
Researchers have developed a new mathematical model to more accurately capture how irregularities in Earth’s atmosphere interrupt signals from Global Navigation Satellite Systems.
New research confirms the existence of a regular, long-term fluctuation in sea level, perhaps caused by processes in Earth’s core.
A strategy that combines geologic mapping with data on how the planet’s surface emits and absorbs microwave radiation could potentially identify recent lava flows.
Aerosol observations from EPIC—a sensor aboard a satellite—align well with ground- and aircraft-based data, including measurements of smoke plumes produced by recent megafires.
Adaptation appears possible in some areas, with northerly marshes having a greater capacity to form new soil and gain elevation, whereas some southerly marshes can migrate inland.
Data from a long-distance research cruise provide new insights into carbon cycling in the eastern Pacific and Southern Oceans.
