New simulations suggest that subsurface oceans on icy moons with small natural Rossby numbers may be dominated by rotational effects.


Success in Yosemite is driving the wider use of lidar surveys to support forest health and wildfire resilience, study wildlife habitats, and monitor water resources.


If subduction carries hydrous minerals deep into Earth’s mantle, they may “rust” the iron outer core, forming vast sinks of oxygen that can later be returned to the atmosphere.

Methane, a potent greenhouse gas, has been rising in the atmosphere at an accelerating rate since 2007. But the cause of the acceleration remains unknown.

A new initiative is bringing together scientists to address fundamental questions about subduction zone geohazards, using the latest advances in observation technology and computational resources.

A medida que las inundaciones aumentan en frecuencia e intensidad, los productos químicos enterrados en los sedimentos de los ríos se convierten en “bombas de tiempo” que esperan activarse.

Scientists uncovered how seasonal changes affect the amount and rate of carbon as it moves from the ocean’s surface to its depths.

Ocean thermal energy conversion could power the world’s tropical islands, if it ever gets out of the “innovation valley of death.”

How did our planet avoid being frozen solid during the early days of our solar system?

Two recently published papers zoom in on the mystery source of methane in the Martian atmosphere.
