A new method for examining the tiny vibrations of Earth caused by ocean swells could help reveal details of deep-Earth structure.
When accompanied by a considerable amount of rainfall, ignition of wildfire by lightning over forested land may not be detected until days later.
A new analytical solution for Emanuel’s theory on how the winds vary with the distance from the hurricane center outside of the core of the storm.
Mimicking a randomized control trial of wildfires, scientists use satellites to uncover the key role of vegetation dryness in wildfire risk, aiding wildfire management and preparedness in California.
New evidence from 1.2-billion-year-old rocks suggests that single, sinuous channels could have formed in muddy floodplain sediments without the stabilizing help of vegetation.
Changing environments can dramatically change how quickly layers form in sedimentary rocks, leading to incorrect time estimates.
Future releases of sulfur dioxide from volcanoes will likely be higher than the reconstructed historical levels currently used for climate predictions.
A high-resolution whole atmosphere simulation captures the strong, global responses up to the thermosphere and ionosphere following the Hunga-Tonga volcano eruption.
Whether warming increases or decreases, rain over land depends on the relationship of soil moisture, evaporation, and aridity which shape rain regimes.
Researchers present a new analysis of surface winds and enthalpy fluxes from satellite retrievals for African easterly waves that intensify into Atlantic hurricanes.
