Last year, a new collaborative initiative conducted a hypothetical volcano response exercise. A month later, they put the knowledge gained to use during an actual eruption.
Silicone wristbands can help monitor pregnant women’s exposure to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Tracking these toxic chemicals, produced by combustion, could improve public health outcomes.
Nontraditional sources of data could assist in charting the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals, helping design appropriate policies and investments to improve the state of the environment.
Satellite observations have long been used to detect deforestation, and a new study shows that giving Indigenous groups greater access to these data can improve response times and reduce tree cover loss.
Aerosol observations from EPIC—a sensor aboard a satellite—align well with ground- and aircraft-based data, including measurements of smoke plumes produced by recent megafires.
A new book presents an example-driven collection of basic methods, applications, and visualizations to process satellite data sets for Earth science research.
The sophisticated new research station will allow for better science on the icy continent.
The most complete hydrological data set for the African continent reveals a surprise: Soil moisture, not heavy precipitation, best explains the timing of Africa’s most severe floods.
Solving the case of ocean eddy death could help climate modelers better represent the effect of wind.
Enhancements to the largely invisible framework will enable researchers to investigate pressing questions about our planet’s future.
