Sinkholes are a significant hazard, but where are they most likely to happen? A new study identifies hot spots in the contiguous United States.
Researchers say knowing how much water is being extracted is crucial for addressing infrastructure and water supply crises in the capital.
Machine learning leverages large data sets to reveal hidden patterns explaining when, where, and why dissolved organic carbon moves from hillslopes to streams.
A new study links geological factors such as faulting and geothermal activity to an elevated risk of arsenic contamination in private wells across the Great Basin.
Topography and exhumation vary strongly along the Apennines, reflecting the geometry of the Moho and different geodynamic mechanisms.
Differencing digital surface topography models constructed from historical aerial photographs reveal the coseismic surface displacement field of the 1987 earthquake in northern New Zealand.
Hillslopes play a critical role in linking ecosystems. Understanding the forces that drive their connections can help us to better understand adaptation in the face of climate change.
Numerical models provide quantitative constraints on topography lost to erosion, showing how the sediment influx in a sedimentary basin reflects its tectonic and topographic evolution.
Rainfall varies with elevation, and such precipitation gradients can have profound and often counterintuitive effects on topography.
Exposure to sunlight creates telltale patterns in the polar ice cap that change over time, potentially providing insight into the climatic history of the Red Planet.
