Rocky Exoplanet May Have Magnetic Field
Magnetic interactions between stellar wind and the planet likely caused extrasolar space weather.
Eavesdropping on the Vibrations of Earth’s Magnetic Bubble
A NASA-funded crowdsourced science project has converted the unheard sounds resonating inside Earth’s magnetic shield into audible tracks, revealing an orchestra of whistles, wooshes, and chirps.
Collaboration Helps Overcome Challenges in Air Quality Monitoring
Everything looks ideal for collaboration: interest from community members, a new method for monitoring air quality by scientists, and interest from policymakers. What happens next?
Meshless Methods Tell Us What Lurks Beneath the Surface
Limitations with resolving complex underground targets with sufficiently fine resolution may be alleviated through the adoption of meshless electromagnetic methods.
Tides Ripple Across Earth’s Plasma “Donut”
Interactions between lunar gravity and the terrestrial magnetic field may cause a 90° offset from the Moon’s position in its orbit.
How Space Storms Miscue Train Signals
Geomagnetic storms could significantly disrupt electrified train operations in the United Kingdom once every few decades, according to a new study.
Rapid Evolution of Volcanic Systems Reflected in Magnetics
Spatiotemporal magnetic monitoring along with InSAR models is a powerful tool to image magmatic, hydrothermal, and mechanical changes within the volcanic edifice of the Piton de la Fournaise.
How Thick Is Antarctic Ice, and What Is Underneath?
Scientists used electromagnetic fields to determine the thickness of fast ice.
What Surprises do the Icy Uranian Moons Hold?
With efforts ramping up to send a spacecraft back to the Uranian system, anticipation is increasing as to what geological surprises are hiding inside and on the surfaces of the icy Uranian moons.
