New climate records from a peat bog show how two neighboring cultures responded differently to shifts in climate and ocean currents.
Hydrological processes affect plant ecology and the biogeochemical exchange between salt marshes and the sea.
A new study finds nature can’t have it both ways: On the basis of thousands of case studies from dozens of hurricanes, there’s always a trade-off between resistance and resilience.
The Curve is a series charting the mysterious rise of methane in our atmosphere and the quest to find its source.
Restoring formerly drained peat wetlands can mitigate climate-warming emissions but the reward takes patience.
Poor infrastructure is responsible for tens of thousands of pharmaceutical doses that flow through Baltimore’s streams each year.
An innovative integration of models and satellite observations indicates weak temperature sensitivity of CH4 emissions from tropical wetlands, but temperature sensitivity is high at higher latitudes.
People have been engineering river deltas for millennia, but new research identifies the optimal placement for diversions that benefit both local communities and the environment—and it might be close to a city.
Researchers compared the nitrogen removal potential by microbes in ditches that drained forested, urban, and agricultural lands and discovered that roadside ditches are important areas for removing nutrients.
