Around 200 years ago, when conversion of land for agriculture became more widespread, the amount of sediment accumulating in riverbeds across the continent jumped tenfold.
Researchers listened to boulders for thousands of hours to investigate how they weathered.
Scientists investigate whether warming temperatures and changing rainfall patterns could be triggering more landslides in mountainous areas.
With a deficit of sediment needed to compensate for relative sea level rise, a new study demonstrates that organic material cannot be ignored in evaluating mass and volume accumulation rates.

High-altitude aeolian research on the Tibetan Plateau offers insights into the past, present, and future.
First International Conference on High Latitude Cold Climate Dust (HLCCD); Reykjavík, Iceland, 22–25 May 2017
Weathering of rocks can control Earth’s temperature over geologic timescales, new geochemical data suggest.
A recent article in Reviews of Geophysics combined mathematical modeling, fracture mechanics theory and engineering research data to provide new insights into a critical geological process.
Along faults in the Central Apennine Mountains, weather and landslides may cause rock exposure that is mistakenly attributed to earthquakes.
