In our June issue, Eos looks at how scientists and city planners are partnering to protect our vital urban forests.
Contributions are invited to a new cross-journal special collection that describe novel advances in critical zone research, with specific consideration for transferable and broadly applicable science.
Greenhouse gas emissions from sports fields may be scoring points for climate change.
A new book presents a multidisciplinary perspective on soil, exploring it as a nexus for water flow, near surface (bio)geochemistry, erosion and deposition, and biologically coupled nutrient cycling.
A new 3D model offers a state-of-the-art look at the full spectrum of slip behaviors in the Nankai subduction zone off Japan.
Asked to imagine a modeled landscape, you probably wouldn’t first think of a Cubist painting. But Cubists and geoscientists may have more in common than meets the eye.
Magnetic studies offer a new strand for the analysis of faulting processes and could help with better understanding of fault rupture and earthquakes.
The geology and the structure of Earth’s critical zone control subsurface moisture storage potential and determine the resilience of forest and river ecosystems to drought.
By way of agriculture and industry, humans have major influences on the critical zone. Our past and present effects on the landscape, soil, and water will echo for a long time to come.
The lasting influence humans have on Earth’s critical zone—and how geologic forces have mediated those influences—is revealed in studies of soil and carbon migration.
