Cosmological Tool Helps Archaeologists Map Earthly Tombs
A new study employs a method originally developed to help map stars and galaxies to describe how ancient tombs are clustered. The research helps archaeologists studying remote or inaccessible sites.
Detailed Geologic Mapping Helps Identify Health Hazards
A team of geologists and nursing researchers created an interactive radon hazard map for Kentucky residents—and it was possible only because of the high-resolution bedrock mapping in the state.
Mapping the People, Places, and Problems of Permafrost Thaw
By combining demography data with permafrost maps, researchers provide a first count of the population on permafrost and predict its imminent decline.
Ciertas formaciones rocosas pueden provocar riesgos de radón en los hogares
Investigadores de Kentucky han combinado resultados de kits de pruebas domésticas con el mapa geológico del estado para elaborar un mapa del potencial de radón en interiores basado en la geología subyacente a las viviendas del estado.
Scientists Map Africa’s Groundwater Recharge for the First Time
The continent-wide survey provides an assessment of the resilience of groundwater resources.
1.3 Million Pairs of Stars Surround the Sun
Roughly half of Sun-like stars have a stellar sibling, and a surprising fraction of those siblings are identical twins.
Taking the Temperature of Antarctica’s Crust
How do you measure the geothermal heat flux in a continent covered by an ice-sheet? A new study uses correlations of diverse global observables and produces a heat flow map of the entire Antarctica.
Assessing Social Equity in Disasters
Natural hazard impacts and resources allocated for risk reduction and disaster recovery are often inequitably distributed. New research is developing and applying methods to measure these inequities.
Robot Measures Air-Sea Carbon Dioxide Exchange in Southern Ocean
Unique air and ocean surface observations of the Southern Ocean from a 22,000 km, 196-day circumnavigation around Antarctica by an Uncrewed Surface Vehicle.
