Though not as damaging as extreme space weather events, showers of plasma jets hit Earth’s magnetic shield every day—yet we’re only beginning to understand their effects.
New simulations show that planets around young, massive stars may have been captured or stolen rather than homegrown.
The underwater crater, spotted serendipitously in commercial observations of seafloor sediments, is believed to have formed at roughly the same time as the famous Cretaceous-Paleogene impact event.
¿Tienen los cambios de temperatura impactos económicos duraderos? Un truco “ingenioso” que identifica tendencias climáticas nos lleva un paso más cerca a abordar esta vieja pregunta en la economía climática.
Laboratory experiments show that earthquakes may have helped early life evolve in an oxygen-free world.
The role the deep Earth plays in creating topography is hotly debated. A new study uses subtle elevation changes around the globe as evidence that the mantle plays a key role in building topography.
The most powerful gigantic jet ever recorded fortuitously appeared over a sensor array in Oklahoma, enabling scientists to map the structure of the phenomenon for the first time.
The discovery of tridymite in Mars’s Gale Crater triggered debate about the rare mineral’s origins. A research team recently suggested a scenario with explosive implications.
Recent research suggests fire-generated vortices are always present during wildfires.
Do shifts in temperature have enduring economic impacts? A “clever” trick identifying climate trends gets us one step closer to addressing this long-standing question in climate economics.
