Researchers propose the creation of an anthropogenic vulnerability index to help guide conservation policy decisions.
New research documents how a warming climate contributes to patterns in wildfire severity and frequency and how the fires contribute to climate change.
Living near a forest edge may be an important risk factor for Lyme disease; these liminal spaces provide the perfect habitat for one of the black-legged tick’s favorite hosts.
With no atmosphere in the way, measurements of the planet’s surface temperature are the first observational constraints on mantle convection models for an exoplanet.

The model, which will incorporate 227 million surface wave measurements, could help with everything from earthquake characterization to neutrino geosciences.
An international group of early-career scientists has developed its own network to virtually moor connections within the peatlands community.
Changes in rates of tectonic degassing may have been responsible for rapid, extreme warming during the Miocene Climatic Optimum and the long cooling period that followed.
Sixty-two individuals have been elected to the 2020 Class of Fellows.
AGU will formally recognize this year’s recipients in December at an online celebration during Fall Meeting 2020.
