Following the major eruption of Iceland's Bardarbunga volcano, researchers have shown how sulfur aerosols emitted into the atmosphere impact cloud formation by creating creating smaller water droplets that reflect more light.
Using the natural movements observed in plants, researchers believe they can make tiny robots move with the use of electricity.
Tropical fossil forests from 380 million years ago were recently unearthed in Norway and are believed to have triggered a drastic climate shift experienced during this time.
Fossilized sediments from a prehistoric lake were recently found in Scandinavia and shed light on what really happened at the end of the last Ice Age.
Fireworks and bonfires may be a fun way to celebrate national holidays, but the smoke and other particles emitted into the atmosphere can reduce visibility by 25 percent. Visibility can be further reduced when humidity is high and particles absorb more moisture.
NASA recently discovered that low-energy secondary electrons have an unexpected role in creating Northern Light shows.
Aerosol particles ejected into the air following volcanic eruptions can trigger rainfall shortages that ultimately alter river systems worldwide.
Forests are often depended upon to capture and store carbon emissions. However, a new study shows that current models drastically overestimate their ability to capture carbon.
Previous sea level rise predictions are higher than new estimates. Stanford researchers using Earth's distant past as a reference found roughly a 50-foot difference in the two calculations. Where does that leave NYC, Miami, and New Orleans?
