Bedload sediment, transported throughout an alpine catchment by a flood, was remotely tracked in detail by analyzing the ground vibrations recorded by a network of 24 seismic sensors.
A fresh analysis of a historic ice core has revealed evidence of a much smaller ice cap.
Les sols en érosion en raison du développement économique ont transporté des sédiments en mer de Chine méridionale… et jusque dans le squelette corallien.
Annapurna IV toppled in a Himalayan landslide, and scientists finally figured out when and how it happened.
Laboratory experiments suggest that underwater gas eruptions—due to the venting of gas hydrates, for example—could trigger the formation of layers of suspended sediment in the ocean.
New evidence from 1.2-billion-year-old rocks suggests that single, sinuous channels could have formed in muddy floodplain sediments without the stabilizing help of vegetation.
Cometary activity moves sediments over the surface of 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, with long-term sinks near the poles of the comet.
Changing environments can dramatically change how quickly layers form in sedimentary rocks, leading to incorrect time estimates.
A new Bayesian approach is used for the estimation and uncertainty quantification of unobservable parameters required to model tracer evolution in ocean sediment transport and tracer concentrations.
La erosión del suelo derivada del desarrollo económico mueve sedimentos hacia el mar del sur de China y también hacia los esqueletos de los corales.
