Phillips, “Open and Fair Data in Tropical Forests” EARTH SCIENCE ARCHIVE Internet Cable Reveals the Source of Underwater Vibrations A novel use of an existing fiber-optic cable off the coast of Spain has clued scientists in to how seismic noise is generated in the ocean. by Saima May Sidik Can Decommissioned Mines Become Green Power Generators? A new report supports the idea that underground mines can be transformed into energy storage facilities, adding the possibility of on-demand, carbon-free power to energy grids. by Sarah Derouin Satellites Can Accurately Take Earth’s Temperature Satellite-based measurements of land surface temperature may prove to be an essential pairing with near-surface air temperatures to understand global warming and cooling trends. by Rebecca Dzombak Seismic Sources in the Aleutian Cradle of Tsunamis Research over the past decade in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands has offered surprising insights into the pulses of great earthquakes that generate dangerous, often long-distance tsunamis. by Rob Witter, Rich Briggs, Tina Dura, Simon Engelhart and Alan Nelson Making Waves Sources of tsunamis are undersea, underground, and under the microscope in our October issue. by Caryl-Sue Micalizio Exploring Carbon Emissions in Peatland Restoration Rewetting bogs can increase methane emissions in the short term, but ultimately the approach helps restore peatlands and create larger carbon sinks. by Sarah Derouin How We’re Reshaping Global Water Storage Researchers modeled and mapped how eight key aspects of human societies affect hydrological cycles. by Saima May Sidik Wetlands on the Farm: Potent, Nutrient-Capturing Tools in (Relatively) Small Packages Constructed wetlands can significantly reduce water pollution from tile-drained farms. by Kristen Coyne Written in Stone: Inca Buildings Remember Ancient Earthquakes Damage to the Inca buildings of Cusco reveals a forgotten earthquake history that could help scientists understand modern seismic hazards. by Erin Martin-Jones Impact Crater off the African Coast May Be Linked to Chicxulub The underwater crater, spotted serendipitously in commercial observations of seafloor sediments, is believed to have formed at roughly the same time as the famous Cretaceous-Paleogene impact event. by Katherine Kornei Load more posts Loading… Something went wrong.
