Geologists from Oregon State University and the University of North Carolina revealed new insights on studying the processes of land-based volcanoes in the annual American Geophysical Union fall meeting in San Francisco.
Scientists have broken the stereotype that winter is an off-season for lake plants, animals, and algae. Freshwater systems around the planet are incredibly active and much more complex, especially in recent times since climate change is warming lakes around the planet.
NASA and two institutions have renewed their search for Antarctic meteorites to learn more about the earliest building blocks of the solar system and Earth’s moon and neighboring planets.
The radio telescope project called Hydrogen Epoch of Reionization Array (HERA) has just received about $9.5 million of new funding from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF).
In the dark, cold waters of both the Antarctic and Arctic oceans, sea spiders are growing larger than usual. Researchers say this phenomenon, known as polar gigantism, may or may not be attributed to the abundance of oxygen in the seawater.
When humans began farming 6,000 years ago, during what scientists call the Anthropocene, the natural distribution of species was disrupted. This has had a lasting impact on ecosystems today.
In El Salvador, a village left under thick ash for 1,400 years is our best-preserved ancient Maya settlement. A University of Colorado study reveals something new and unusual about its residents.
An attractive, housecat-sized rodent chewed through its enclosure fence at D.C.'s National Zoo this week. This type of animal also plays cat-and-mouse with the wild cat, the ocelot, in South America.
Stream restorations in northern Sweden, started in the 1980s, show that we must allow more time for streams to recover--and help them out, say researchers.
