Results of in situ experiments on natural microbial communities suggest that biological crusts can protect soils from erosion, but their protective role could be compromised under predicted future climate scenarios.
Data from deep wells and a Bayesian modeling framework shed new light on one of Iceland’s valuable geothermal reservoirs.
Numerical modeling shows widespread impacts of the 2012 Chicago heat wave, shedding light on heat wave and urban heat island impacts on the city’s temperature.
A principal component analysis of speculative models can more confidently predict the presence of a planetary object’s subsurface ocean than previous techniques.
Use of deicing agents may sometimes raise sodium levels in drinking water beyond healthy limits for people on salt-restricted diets.
Investigadores descubren cómo el carbono negro evoluciona de partículas hidrofóbicas a sitios de nucleación de nubes, removiendo eventualmente las partículas que absorben calor del cielo.
Instead of waiting for earthquake waves to tell scientists about the structure of Earth’s interior, scientists can now use ambient noise from humans to “see” underground.
Scientists uncovered how seasonal changes affect the amount and rate of carbon as it moves from the ocean’s surface to its depths.
