A new model makes a direct estimate of contaminants in submarine groundwater discharge.
NASA's MESSENGER spacecraft discovered electric currents in Mercury's magnetosphere directed toward and away from the planet. Do the currents reach the planet? If so, where do they go?
Metallic plasma layers in Earth's ionosphere interfere with radio communications and produce odd echo behavior at specific frequencies.
Twenty years of ground motion observations show that seismic strain is accumulating south of Istanbul.
Researchers investigate how microbes respire in dry conditions.
A new technique brings accurate models of traveling seismic waves to a regional scale.
The Sun's influence on the Earth's climate is complicated, but researchers are slowly figuring out how the solar wind can indirectly affect clouds over the poles.
By changing the flow of the river, aquatic plants affect the distribution of nutrients on the riverbed.
A pronounced contrast in salinity between the Gulf Stream and current rings makes satellite salinity measurements valuable.
