Watersheds have unique patterns of silicon export due to differences in subsurface water routing and biogeochemical reactions.
Numerical models provide quantitative constraints on topography lost to erosion, showing how the sediment influx in a sedimentary basin reflects its tectonic and topographic evolution.
Extreme lithium fractionation is observed when primary minerals in andesite are transformed to secondary clay minerals and then to oxides with intensive chemical weathering in a tropical climate.
Results of in situ experiments on natural microbial communities suggest that biological crusts can protect soils from erosion, but their protective role could be compromised under predicted future climate scenarios.
Worsening flooding and erosion threaten places of “outstanding universal value” along the continent’s coastlines.
Una estrategia que combina la cartografía geológica con datos sobre cómo la superficie del planeta emite y absorbe la radiación de microondas podría potencialmente identificar flujos de lava recientes.
Miners in Alaska rerouted a river to search for gold. One hundred years later, the new channel is teaching scientists how rivers shape Earth.
Important data collection can aid coastal monitoring and management.
Tree throw from extreme wind events plays an important role in the movement of sediment and erosion on forested hillslopes. A new theory offers a novel way to measure its impact.
Earth’s oscillating climate is a natural guess to explain cyclic patterns in erosion, but new sediment data suggests that cyclicity may emerge from tectonic processes adding material to the Himalaya.
