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.
A new analytical model describes how the amount and grain size of sediment transported by rivers influences bedrock channel width, which can be used to predict where rivers will widen or narrow.
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.
An imaging campaign after the 2018 planet-encircling dust storm on Mars revealed a significant increase in detections of enigmatic recurring slope lineae and new insights into how they might form.
