Posing as an interplanetary flight attendant in an upcoming show, researcher Christine McCarthy will lead a geological journey through the solar system.
Thousands of years ago, the West Antarctic ice sheet shrank dramatically—then grew back in an unexpected way.
In the high Andes of Peru, glacial retreat poses a complex set of challenges related to water supply.
A new study, which found that the Earth and the Moon are drifting apart, inspired a science communicator to write this poem.
For anyone who has ever wished there were more hours in the day, geoscientists have some good news: Days on Earth are getting longer. Very slowly.
Sunny California may be getting too sunny. Increasing summer temperatures brought on by a combination of intensifying urbanization and warming climate are driving off once-common morning cloud cover in southern coastal areas of the state, leading to increased risk of wildfires.
In a new study, researchers show that machine learning algorithms can pick out different types of earthquakes from three years of data at Geysers in California. The repeating patterns of earthquakes appear to match the seasonal rise and fall of water-injection flows into the hot rocks below.
A new study has uncovered when and why the native vegetation that today dominates much of Australia first expanded across the continent.
