Warm US West, cold East: A 4,000-year pattern (4/18/2014)

Warm US West, cold East: A 4,000-year patternLast winter's curvy jet stream pattern brought mild temperatures to western North America and harsh cold to the East. A University of Utah-led study shows that pattern became more pronounced 4,000 years ago, and suggests it may worsen as Earth's climate warms. ...> Full Article


Study provides crucial new information about how the ice ages came about (4/17/2014)

An international team of scientists has discovered new relationships between deep-sea temperature and ice-volume changes to provide crucial new information about how the ice ages came about. ...> Full Article


Earthquake simulation tops 1 quadrillion flops (4/16/2014)

Earthquake simulation tops 1 quadrillion flopsA team of computer scientists, mathematicians and geophysicists at Technische Universitaet Muenchen and Ludwig-Maximillians Universitaet Muenchen have -- with the support of the Leibniz Supercomputing Center of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities (LRZ) -- optimized the SeisSol earthquake simulation software on the SuperMUC high performance computer at the LRZ to push its performance beyond the 'magical' one petaflops mark -- one quadrillion floating point operations per second. ...> Full Article


Geologists prove early Tibetan Plateau was larger than previously thought (4/11/2014)

Geologists prove early Tibetan Plateau was larger than previously thoughtEarth scientists in Syracuse University's College of Arts and Sciences have determined that the Tibetan Plateau -- the world's largest, highest, and flattest plateau -- had a larger initial extent than previously documented. ...> Full Article


Scientists reconstruct ancient impact that dwarfs dinosaur-extinction blast (4/10/2014)

Scientists reconstruct ancient impact that dwarfs dinosaur-extinction blastAlthough scientists had previously hypothesized enormous ancient impacts, much greater than the one that may have eliminated the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, now a new study reveals the power and scale of a cataclysmic event some 3.26 billion years ago which is thought to have created geological features found in a South African region known as the Barberton greenstone belt. The research has been accepted for publication in Geochemistry, Geophysics, Geosystems, a journal of the American Geophysical Union. ...> Full Article


A satellite view of volcanoes finds the link between ground deformation and eruption (4/6/2014)

Using satellite imagery to monitor which volcanoes are deforming provides statistical evidence of their eruption potential, according to a new study led by the University of Bristol published today in Nature Communications. ...> Full Article


Hot mantle drives elevation, volcanism along mid-ocean ridges (4/5/2014)

Hot mantle drives elevation, volcanism along mid-ocean ridgesUsing data from seismic waves, scientists have shown that temperature deep in Earth's mantle controls the elevation and volcanic activity along mid-ocean ridges, colossal mountain ranges that line the ocean floor. The findings, published this week in Science, bolster the idea that warm mantle plumes are responsible for 'hot spot' volcanism, and shed new light on how temperature in the depths of the mantle influences the contours of the Earth's crust. ...> Full Article


Magnetic anomaly deep within Earth's crust reveals Africa in North America (4/3/2014)

The repeated cycles of plate tectonics that have led to collision and assembly of large supercontinents and their breakup and formation of new ocean basins have produced continents that are collages of bits and pieces of other continents. Figuring out the origin and make-up of continental crust formed and modified by these tectonic events is vital to understanding Earth's geology and is important for many applied fields, such as oil, gas, and gold exploration. ...> Full Article


The Atlantic Ocean dances with the sun and volcanoes (4/1/2014)

Natural fluctuations in the ocean temperature in the North Atlantic have a significant impact on the climate in the northern hemisphere. These fluctuations are the result of a complex dance between the forces of nature, but researchers at Aarhus University can now show that solar activity and the impact of volcanic eruptions have led this dance during the last two centuries. ...> Full Article

Ancient Indonesian climate shift linked to glacial cycle (3/28/2014)

Brown University researchers have compiled a detailed climate record for central Indonesia over the last 60,000 years. They find that prolonged dry spell in the region thousands of years ago correlates with the peak of the last ice age in the northern hemisphere. The data will help scientists understand the climate history of a region that wields a strong influence on global climate as a whole. ...> Full Article

Off-rift volcanoes explained (3/25/2014)

Volcanoes often develop outside the rift zone in an apparently unexpected location offset by tens of kilometers has remained unanswered. An international team of scientists has shown that the pattern of stresses in the crust changes when the crust thins. As a consequence, the path of the magma pockets ascending from the ponding zone is deviated diagonally to the sides of the rift. Eventually, the magma pockets emerge at distances of tens, sometime hundreds of kilometers from the rift axis. ...> Full Article


Dust in the wind drove iron fertilization during ice age (3/23/2014)

Dust in the wind drove iron fertilization during ice ageA study published in Science by researchers at Princeton University and ETH Zurich confirms a longstanding hypothesis that wind-borne dust carried iron to the region of the globe north of Antarctica, driving plankton growth and eventually leading to the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. ...> Full Article
