Most of the Alps are considered tectonically dead, but according to new research, the southeastern region—home to prosecco wine—is very much alive.
New research shows how regional weather, shaped by towering mountain ranges, might influence the size and shape of local rodents.
Students and community members monitor the health of mountain water reserves, which capture and release water, evening out wet and dry periods downstream.
Using thermokinematics, researchers have found that crustal accretion along the megathrust at mid-lower crustal depths shapes plateau growth and regional drainage development.
From Antarctica to the Arctic, Miner’s career as a climate scientist has taken her to Earth’s frozen areas to study the effects of climate change.
New models of eastern Tibetan hillsides show that steep slopes with “excess” rock last longer on average than their shallower counterparts.
A new modeling framework to assess the likelihood of jamming at constrictions can be used to support the design of effective mitigation measures and reduce risk in debris flow prone areas.
As climate change persists, amplified temperature increases in mountains and changes in precipitation will diminish snow and ice.
