Some plants regenerate by duplicating their DNA (11/23/2014)

Some plants regenerate by duplicating their DNAWhen munched by grazing animals -- or mauled by scientists in the lab -- some herbaceous plants overcompensate -- producing more plant matter and becoming more fertile than they otherwise would. Scientists say they now know how these plants accomplish this feat of regeneration. ...> Full Article


Good vibrations give electrons excitations that rock an insulator to go metallic (11/22/2014)

Good vibrations give electrons excitations that rock an insulator to go metallicA team led by the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory has made an important advancement in understanding a classic transition-metal oxide, vanadium dioxide, by quantifying the thermodynamic forces driving the transformation. The results are published in the Nov. 10 advance online issue of Nature. ...> Full Article


Re-learning how to read a genome (11/22/2014)

Re-learning how to read a genomeThere are roughly 20,000 genes and thousands of other regulatory 'elements' stored within our DNA. Somehow all of this coded information needs to be read and transcribed into messages that can be used by cells. New research has revealed that the initial steps of the reading process are actually remarkably similar at both genes and regulatory elements. The main differences seem to occur after the initial step, in the length and stability of the messages. ...> Full Article


Syracuse geologist reveals correlation between earthquakes, landslides (11/21/2014)

Syracuse geologist reveals correlation between earthquakes, landslidesA geologist in Syracuse University's College of Arts and Sciences has demonstrated that earthquakes -- not climate change, as previously thought -- affect the rate of landslides in Peru.  ...> Full Article


Worldwide retreat of glaciers confirmed in unprecedented detail (11/20/2014)

Worldwide retreat of glaciers confirmed in unprecedented detailTaking their name from the old Scottish term glim, meaning a passing look or glance, in 1994 a team of scientists began developing a world-wide initiative to study glaciers using satellite data. Now 20 years later, the international GLIMS initiative observes the world's glaciers primarily using data from optical satellite instruments such as ASTER and Landsat. ...> Full Article


Fracture-controlled erodibility, great rock climbing (11/19/2014)

Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite National Park is an iconic American landscape: It is a sub-alpine meadow surrounded by glacially sculpted granitic outcrops in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Because of its accessibility and aesthetic appeal, it is a focal point for both vacationers (up to 4,200 people per day) and geoscientists. It also has historical significance: The idea for a Yosemite National Park came to John Muir and Robert Underwood Johnson over a campfire there. ...> Full Article


Study shows tectonic plates not rigid, deform horizontally in cooling process (11/18/2014)

Study shows tectonic plates not rigid, deform horizontally in cooling processThe puzzle pieces of tectonic plates are not rigid and don't fit together as nicely as we were taught in high school. A study published in the journal Geology by Corné Kreemer, an associate professor at the University of Nevada, Reno, and his colleague Richard Gordon of Rice University, quantifies deformation of the Pacific plate and challenges the central approximation of the plate tectonic paradigm that plates are rigid. ...> Full Article


Felling pine trees to study their wind resistance (11/17/2014)

Technicians of the Basque Institute for Agricultural Research and Development NEIKER-Tecnalia have in recent days been felling trees to simulate the effect of the wind in mountains in the Bizkaia locality of Artzentales. ...> Full Article


Massive geographic change may have triggered explosion of animal life (11/16/2014)

Massive geographic change may have triggered explosion of animal lifeA new paper by The University of Texas at Austin's Jackson School of Geosciences published in the November issue of Geology suggests a major tectonic event may be connected with the apparent burst of life that occurred 530 million years ago during the Cambrian explosion. ...> Full Article


Lack of oxygen delayed the rise of animals on Earth (11/16/2014)

Lack of oxygen delayed the rise of animals on EarthScientists have long speculated as to why animal species didn't flourish sooner, once sufficient oxygen covered the Earth's surface. Animals began to prosper at the end of the Proterozoic period -- but what about the billion-year stretch before that, when most researchers think there also was plenty of oxygen? Yale University researcher Noah Planavsky and his colleagues found that oxygen levels during the 'boring billion' period were only 0.1 percent of what they are today. ...> Full Article


Sediment supply drives floodplain evolution in Amazon Basin (11/15/2014)

A new study of the Amazon River basin shows lowland rivers that carry large volumes of sediment meander more across floodplains and create more oxbow lakes than rivers that carry less sediment. ...> Full Article


Study of Chile earthquake finds new rock structure that affects earthquake rupture (11/15/2014)

Study of Chile earthquake finds new rock structure that affects earthquake ruptureResearchers from the University of Liverpool have found an unusual mass of rock deep in the active fault line beneath Chile which influenced the rupture size of a massive earthquake that struck the region in 2010. ...> Full Article

New study finds oceans arrived early to Earth (11/13/2014)

New study finds oceans arrived early to EarthEarth is known as the Blue Planet because of its oceans, which cover more than 70 percent of the planet's surface and are home to the world's greatest diversity of life. While water is essential for life on the planet, the answers to two key questions have eluded us: where did Earth's water come from and when? ...> Full Article


Rare 2.5-billion-year-old rocks reveal hot spot of sulfur-breathing bacteria (11/12/2014)

Rare 2.5-billion-year-old rocks reveal hot spot of sulfur-breathing bacteriaBiogeochemical signals in 2.5-billion-year-old carbonate rocks from Brazil reveal that sulfur-consuming bacteria were active at a time when ocean sulfur levels were low. Geology graduate student Iadviga Zhelezinskaia is the first researcher to focus on sulfur isotopes in ancient carbonate rocks. Her study sheds light on Earth's early atmospheric chemistry, and appears in the Nov. 7 issue of Science. ...> Full Article
