A new storm is expected to land on the area this week and the officials concluded that the repairs might not be able to withstand it.
Global salt marsh erosion is largely driven by regular weather patterns, rather than the occasional violent storm.
America's Dust Bowl in the 1930s severely impacted soil quality –- so much so that the effects remain to present day.
A new online program called Fossil Finds allows people to become archaeologists in their own homes. Satellite images captured by drones and kites are uploaded for people to examine for fossils.
Scientists recently mapped the development of one of the world's largest consolidated piles of dust and erosion--China's vast Loess Plateau. In doing so, they studied both wind-related geology change and climate change.
Erosion can happen at a much fast rate when extreme weather events occur. Since sediment takes many years to accumulate, this kind of weather has the potential to cause a whole lot of years' worth of damage.
Scientists are already worried about the rapidly growing human population, which is approaching unsustainable levels and threatening global food security. And now, new research shows that soil losses may exacerbate this problem and result in possible ramifications for human security.
Hawaii's beautiful beaches are vanishing due to chronic erosion, and lawmakers are trying to figure out a way to restore them to their once pristine conditions.
The famous Alamo, the site of a historic battle during the Texas Revolution, is slowly fading away - at least, its well-known west entrance is, according to a new study.
Humans reportedly erode soil 100 times faster than nature, an astonishing new study revealed.
A team of scientists recently decided to "go, like Star Trek, where no one has gone before," to uncover new truths about violent bedrock river flow. And their discoveries have not disappointed. According to a new study, rivers flow in a much more complex pattern than you could ever imagine.
A natural gorge in Taiwan is eroding at an exceptionally fast rate, showing what would traditionally be a thousand-year erosive process in mere decades. Researchers taking a close look at this natural phenomenon are calling it "downstream sweep erosion."
Graceful and awe-inspiring sandstone arches seen all over the globe have long been thought to be the products of wind and rain erosion. However, researchers are now suggesting that these factors are simply a means to an end, with gravity and the stone itself being the true sculptors.
