An isolated polar bear population in southeastern Greenland survives in fjords, despite spotty sea ice. But this pocket of bears is not a sign of how the species could be saved.
If a glacier calves into the Arctic Ocean, does it make a sound? Some scientists say yes and have devised a clever way to use those sounds to calculate the size of the fallen ice chunks.
Differencing digital surface topography models constructed from historical aerial photographs reveal the coseismic surface displacement field of the 1987 earthquake in northern New Zealand.
Winds kick up large amounts of dust from the desert that has formed as the world’s fourth largest lake has disappeared, spreading it around the region and raising concerns about public health.
Data scarcity of traditional observations cannot reveal whether surface temperature capture the potential for urban heat stress. This study improves the dataset with 40,000 citizen weather stations.
The AI-based monitoring method may unlock data that could improve shipping safety and climate predictions.
Undisturbed tropical rain forests are experiencing more frequent droughts, but the ecosystems are isolated and difficult to assess. Scientists are using remote sensing to expand the depth and scope of monitoring efforts.
Researchers tracked 19 maritime glaciers in Kenai Fjords National Park over several decades and found that tidewater glaciers tended to experience less ice loss than other types of glaciers.
After oil and tar washed up on eastern Mediterranean beaches in 2021, scientists devised a way to trace the pollution back to its sources using satellite imagery and mathematics.
Planetary scientist studies oceans with a combination of laboratory work and satellite imagery.
