Warming temperatures and changes in ocean circulation and salinity are driving the breakup of ice sheets in Antarctica, but a new study suggests that intense storms may help push the system over the edge.
The molten rock that feeds volcanoes can be stored in the Earth's crust for as long as a thousand years, a result which may help with volcanic hazard management and better forecasting of when eruptions might occur.
Floating air particles following disasters and other geological events can have a lasting impact on life on Earth, and a new model drawing on chaos theory looks to help predict how these particles move, with an eye toward applications for geoengineering. Scientists have developed a model for following particles as they travel around the globe. […]
Happy #FossilFriday! @JaclynRichmond just finished cataloguing these new additions to the @RoyalBCMuseum's collection - a wonderful set of Cretaceous fish bones and shark teeth from the Nanaimo Group, collected by our longtime volunteer Raymond Graham!
