Researchers identified 11 different interglacial periods over the past 800,000 years, but the interglacial period we are experiencing now may last an exceptionally long time.
Researchers demonstrate the value of combining GPS and satellite data on vertical motion of the Earth's surface with tide gauge measurements to track rising sea levels.
Better understanding of waves and turbulence in calm air could improve predictions of weather and pollutant dispersion.
The current definitions of sediment transport capability don't match up with observations of actual geomorphic systems.
Scientists review decades of data on swarms of earthquakes, surface deformation, degassing, and microgravity changes around calderas to determine when such forms of unrest may result in eruptions.
Scientists review Atlantic Ocean circulation variability and its applications for predicting decadal climate variation.
Ice core data, archeological evidence, and other studies suggest humans had a significant influence on Earth's preindustrial climate.
Scientists review studies of the tropical Madden-Julian Oscillation to better frame its role in air-sea interactions.
Predicting glide avalanches and explaining how they work are difficult tasks, but the forces they exert can be calculated fairly well.
Data-driven modeling helps explain how convection currents in Earth's mantle influence the rise and fall of surface features, but these models are in an early stage.
