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.
A strategy that combines geologic mapping with data on how the planet’s surface emits and absorbs microwave radiation could potentially identify recent lava flows.
New research suggests a more settled terminology for Martian aeolian landforms based on size and geomorphology.
Investigadores observan cómo el vapor de agua y el líquido alteran las rocas sedimentarias a través de procesos físicos y químicos.
