A new project looks to unearth information about and learn from ancient underwater landslides buried deep beneath the seafloor to support New Zealand’s resilience to natural hazards.
Solar wind plasma data captured by the Tianwen-1 probe while in transit to Mars represent an important step toward a new era of cooperative Martian space exploration.
New climate records from a peat bog show how two neighboring cultures responded differently to shifts in climate and ocean currents.
New instrumentation and growing modeling needs in the Earth sciences are driving a renewed effort to compile and curate seawater oxygen isotope data in a centralized, accessible database.
New data from vegetal charcoal in northwest India supports the theory of paleowildfires as a global phenomenon and an evolutionary force for biodiversity.
Living in Geologic Time: The making, breaking, and backpacking of North America’s Continental Divide.
Most climate models predict that the South Asian monsoon will strengthen with climate change, but new research indicates warmer ocean temperatures may lead to a drier phenomenon.
Extended periods of volcanism known as flood basalt eruptions lead to volcanic winters, which are often followed by an extended period of warming. But it was more than just carbon dioxide that warmed the globe.
Between 26-15 My ago, forests covering west-central North America gave way to open, grassy habitats. Now, oxygen isotope records suggest this shift is owed to drier winters and increased aridity.
Un nuevo estudio utiliza técnicas de modelado para descubrir cómo pequeños incidentes de calentamiento pueden convertirse en eventos hipertermales que duran miles de años.
