The model relies on measurable broad-scale attributes, increasing its flexibility for use in diverse environments.
New research indicates that seagrasses continue to release methane even after they die, complicating blue carbon initiatives.
Although causality has yet to be established, an Italian case study found that an increase in annual average exposure to PM2.5 was associated with a jump in the rate of COVID-19.
The Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps is in constant motion, gently swaying back and forth about once every 2 seconds.
Tree core chemistry can explain what happened before Mount Etna’s 2002 eruption and suggests that trees could play a role in rebuilding past eruptions.
Climate change increases massive storm surges, which may be more than Venice’s flood-control system can handle.
Pressure from both magma and gas can trigger eruptions. Monitoring degassing can help predict eruptions but only if the magma system is well understood first.
A special collection in Tectonics on geodynamics in the Mediterranean region celebrates the life and work of the renowned Italian geologist Renato Funiciello.
More than 70 passive sensors on Mount Etna have captured the first radon measurements in volcanic plumes and show that radon could affect people around volcanoes.
Long term weather and lake data from a high elevation lake in the Alps demonstrate that climate warming may actually improve the ability of high-altitude deep lakes to mix their waters.
