Irrigation in Indo-Gangetic Plain Has Little Impact on Heat Stress
Irrigation-related cooling during summer months is overestimated by roughly 5 times, highlighting the need for climate models to accurately reflect local agricultural practices.
A New Look at Preindustrial Carbon Release from the Deep Ocean
New research could help inform future studies of how the release of carbon dioxide from the Southern Ocean might affect global climate change.
Pro-Poor Flood Risk Management Can Reduce Urban Inequality
Rich people’s aversion to flood risk results in poor people living in the most vulnerable locations poverty. Pro-poor flood risk management policies could have a significant impact on inequality.
A Dipole Field from the Ediacaran-Cambrian Transition Onward?
The Ediacaran features an instable magnetic field complicating paleogeographic reconstructions; a new paleointensity study on late Ediacaran rocks indicates a weak but stable dipolar field.
New View of Expanding Perspectives in the Geosciences
Earth and environmental sciences have some of the least diverse racial and ethnic representation in academia. To face profound future challenges, the fields need to address the inequities of the past and how they inform the present.
