Scientists create collisionless shock waves to better understand the phenomenon in nature.
Isotopic signatures in volcanic basalts show that Earth's interior is even less uniform than scientists previously thought.
An ultraslow-spreading stretch of the Southwest Indian Ridge is thicker than expected: both tectonic and volcanic processes may be feeding the growing seafloor there.
A rising tone in wave frequencies suggests a complicated, nonlinear series of interactions between electromagnetic sound waves and protons near the magnetic equator.
Orbiting scatterometers can reveal patterns of cool air in mesoscale convective systems.
The effect of particle size on bedrock erosion rates adds complexity to modeling bedrock channel evolution.
The rise in global temperatures has amplified naturally occurring drought conditions in California and has increased the chance of severe droughts in the future.
