Scientists use a new remote-controlled robot to capture data from the middle of an open ocean typhoon.
A new system called SeaView integrates data from five online ocean data sets, helping to paint a more detailed picture of the world's oceans.
A hovercraft-based ice drift station gives researchers access to previously inaccessible regions of the changing Arctic sea ice cover off the coast of Greenland.
Scientists explore microscopic marble deformation at high pressures and temperatures using a novel experimental technique that could improve our understanding of rock deformation in nature.
When the gravity of the Sun and Moon causes Earth's crust to bulge every 2 weeks, slow-moving earthquakes proliferate in the lower reaches of the San Andreas, a new study finds.
A new high-fidelity tomography harnesses USArray data to expose a wealth of noteworthy crustal and upper mantle structures, including previously unknown anomalies beneath the Appalachians.
Test of a novel solar-powered printer yielded a prototype construction brick made from simulated lunar soil.
Scientists using lightning sensors to automate air-turbulence detection have found evidence that storms jostle aircraft much less than previously thought.
In a proof-of-concept experiment, researchers test out how well a pair of fisherman's waders can sense changes in water temperature.
A new study uses identical tests to evaluate the accuracy and performance of current models of Earth's magnetic field, then extrapolates the results to anticipated "petascale" supercomputers.
