The discovery, gleaned from observations of volcanoes on four continents, could help constrain models of volcanic eruptions.
A new study has spurred further research into the impacts of soil formation on modern-day problems like heavy metal contamination in agricultural soils.
A new resource may help match artifacts with their original stone sources—“a really a niche part of archaeology that requires geological expertise.”
In a happy accident, scientists found a potential solution to an atmospheric chemistry mystery. Their findings could be a missing piece in the iodine cycle and in atmospheric models.
New technologies seek to remove and destroy dangerous PFAS chemicals in contaminated water.
The Labrador Sea “inhales” oxygen and supplies it to deep-sea life across the world. But its breath could be threatened by climate change.

When carbon mineralizes in stone, each new fracture exposes more surfaces that can react with and trap CO2, enhancing a rock’s storage capacity.
Organic molecules on a Martian meteorite have fueled nearly 30 years of scientific debate. New evidence suggests they were formed by Martian processes, offering more support for a once habitable environment on the Red Planet.
The second-largest mass extinction in Earth’s history took place in a period of stresses from non-sulfidic anoxia in shelf areas, together with glacioeustatic sea-level change and climatic cooling.
