Less than half of the anthropogenic carbon dioxide remains in the atmosphere to drive climate change. The rest is being removed by mysterious processes in the land, biosphere, and ocean.
The field of seismology is entering a new era where our understanding of earthquakes and the solid earth is increasingly driven by new Big Data experiments and algorithms.
Large earthquakes are necessarily punctuated by some degree of strength recovery, such as “fault healing”, but does quartz cementation during fluid-fault interactions facilitate that process?
As climate change persists, amplified temperature increases in mountains and changes in precipitation will diminish snow and ice.
The prediction of flow and transport in fractured rock is one of the great challenges in the Earth and energy sciences with far-reaching economic and environmental impacts.
Hydrological processes affect plant ecology and the biogeochemical exchange between salt marshes and the sea.
Studying the interactions between the atmosphere and forests is a key component of understanding forest ecosystems and the interplay between our atmosphere and the living world.
The magnetic and color properties of the mineral hematite give clues to past environmental conditions and is being used for paleoclimatic reconstruction.
The Nordic Seas experience influxes of warm water and losses of heat to the atmosphere with knock-on effects on sea ice, glacier retreat, and carbon dioxide uptake.
Satellite observations offer invaluable insights into hydrological processes and environmental change in the Amazon.
