A new 620,000-year climate record from East Africa reveals dramatic swings between wet and dry conditions that may have influenced human evolution.
From wines in Canada to mushrooms in the Czech Republic, some foods will fare better than others on a hot planet.
New research suggests climate change may radically redefine the regions best suited to grow one of Ethiopia’s most valuable crops.
Increments of melt trapped in crystals reveal upper crustal magmas in the Main Ethiopian Rift are rich in water and other volatiles, leading to extensive diffuse degassing and hydrothermal systems.
Although shallow magma storage at Erta Ale volcano hints at a rift-to-ridge transition, the tectonic future of the Afar region is far from certain.
Hot springs that are as acidic as battery acid are home to single-celled microorganisms that may indicate that life could have been sustained on ancient Mars.
Adapting a much-used analytical method to consider anisotropy opens up the approach to new uses.
A look at the sedimentary record in northern Ethiopia tells the story of oceans past—and maybe future.
