The rapid pace of urbanization could encroach on hazard-prone regions without adequate land management and building design regulations, a new modeling project shows.
Jet streams sprinkle North African dust over the Amazon, providing the rain forest with much needed nutrients. Changing wind patterns and increasing smoke may shift the system.
A trio of CubeSats allows South Africa to showcase its growing space industry as well as monitor its coastal zones.
By analyzing rare Martian meteorites, researchers have uncovered a crystalline structure created by a large asteroid or comet impact that potentially affected the Red Planet’s habitability.
Researchers devised a simple way to deliver ocean bottom seismometers accurately to the seafloor to study ongoing seismic and volcanic activity near the islands of Mayotte.
Underground fires threaten the health of people and livestock living near mines supporting the country’s growing coal industry.
The lack of trees is contributing to increased rainfall along the coast of southwest Africa, where communities are already vulnerable to flash flooding.
Until this decade, the Indian Ocean was not well monitored. Today, the Indian Ocean Observing System helps with both weather monitoring and climate modeling.
The grazing habits of wild animals like elephants and boars enable long-term carbon storage, according to new research that stresses the need to align climate mitigation goals with biodiversity conservation.
Researchers use a closed-loop modeling strategy to validate regional uplift patterns recorded in river profiles across the African continent.
