The physical processes that sculpt our Earth are dramatic — earthquakes, weather, volcanic eruptions, tectonic motions, climate change. Now, decades of research into the intricately intertwined system that links all oceans and freshwater, the atmosphere and our land is moving us forward toward a better understanding of our world. Here we watch it unfold.
Metallic crusts on submerged mountains are teeming with deep-sea life.
Finding may revise estimates of forests’ carbon-capturing prowess.
Could this repeated signal be new tool for predicting earthquakes from volcanic activity?
An app based on a flight-based study could let frequent fliers who travel near the North Pole track their radiation exposure.
Two analyses of ecological research projects warn that natural processes in the soil increase the threat of global warming.
Clams made yearly temperature records centuries before we took measurements.
