Study hints that ancient Earth made its own water -- geologically (12/29/2014)

In a finding that meshes well with recent discoveries from the Rosetta mission, Ohio State University researchers have discovered a geochemical pathway by which Earth makes it own water through plate tectonics. This finding extends the planet's water cycle from millions to billions of years -- and suggests that enough water is buried in the deep earth right now to fill the Pacific Ocean. ...> Full Article


Glacier beds can get slipperier at higher sliding speeds (12/27/2014)

Glacier beds can get slipperier at higher sliding speedsUsing the Iowa State University Sliding Simulator, Iowa State glaciologists Lucas Zoet and Neal Iverson have found that as a glacier's sliding speed increases, the bed beneath the glacier can grow slipperier. That laboratory finding could help researchers make better predictions of glacier response to climate change and the corresponding sea-level rise. The research results were just published in the Journal of Glaciology. ...> Full Article


North Atlantic signalled Ice Age thaw 1,000 years before it happened, reveals new research (12/27/2014)

The Atlantic Ocean at mid-depths may have given out early warning signals -- 1,000 years in advance -- that the last Ice Age was going to end, scientists report today in the journal Paleoceanography. ...> Full Article


Hidden movements of Greenland Ice Sheet, runoff revealed (12/26/2014)

For years NASA has tracked changes in the massive Greenland Ice Sheet. This week scientists using NASA data released the most detailed picture ever of how the ice sheet moves toward the sea and new insights into the hidden plumbing of melt water flowing under the snowy surface. ...> Full Article


Massive study provides first detailed look at how Greenland's ice is vanishing (12/24/2014)

Massive study provides first detailed look at how Greenland's ice is vanishingLed by geophysicist Beata Csatho at the University at Buffalo, the research provides what the authors believe is the first comprehensive picture of how Greenland's ice is vanishing.It suggests that current ice sheet modeling studies are too simplistic to accurately predict the future contributions of the entire Greenland Ice Sheet to sea level rise, and that Greenland may lose ice more rapidly in the near future than previously thought. ...> Full Article


Research links soil mineral surfaces to key atmospheric processes (12/23/2014)

Research links soil mineral surfaces to key atmospheric processesResearch by Indiana University scientists finds that soil may be a significant and underappreciated source of nitrous acid, a chemical that plays a pivotal role in atmospheric processes such as the formation of smog and determining the lifetime of greenhouse gases. ...> Full Article


Migrating 'supraglacial' lakes could trigger future Greenland ice loss (12/22/2014)

Migrating 'supraglacial' lakes could trigger future Greenland ice lossPredictions of Greenland ice loss and its impact on rising sea levels may have been greatly underestimated, according to scientists at the University of Leeds. ...> Full Article


Scientists observe the Earth grow a new layer under an Icelandic volcano (12/22/2014)

New research into an Icelandic eruption has shed light on how the Earth's crust forms, according to a paper published today in Nature. ...> Full Article

Earth's most abundant mineral finally has a name (12/20/2014)

An ancient meteorite and high-energy X-rays have helped scientists conclude a half century of effort to find, identify and characterize a mineral that makes up 38 percent of the Earth. ...> Full Article


New study measures methane emissions from natural gas production and offers insights into 2 large sources (12/19/2014)

Researchers find a small percentage of wells accounts for the majority of emissions. ...> Full Article


No laughing matter: Nitrous oxide rose at end of last ice age (12/18/2014)

No laughing matter: Nitrous oxide rose at end of last ice ageNitrous oxide is an important greenhouse gas that doesn't receive as much notoriety as carbon dioxide or methane, but a new study confirms that atmospheric levels of N2O rose significantly as the Earth came out of the last ice age and addresses the cause. ...> Full Article


Abandoned wells can be 'super-emitters' of greenhouse gas (12/17/2014)

Abandoned wells can be 'super-emitters' of greenhouse gasPrinceton University researchers have uncovered a previously unknown, and possibly substantial, source of the greenhouse gas methane to the Earth's atmosphere. After testing a sample of abandoned oil and natural gas wells in northwestern Pennsylvania, the researchers found that many of the old wells leaked substantial quantities of methane. Because there are many abandoned wells nationwide, the researchers believe the overall contribution of leaking wells could be significant. ...> Full Article


Technology-dependent emissions of gas extraction in the US (12/16/2014)

Technology-dependent emissions of gas extraction in the USNot all boreholes are the same. Scientists of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology used mobile measurement equipment to analyze gaseous compounds emitted by the extraction of oil and natural gas in the USA. For the first time, organic pollutants emitted during a fracking process were measured at a high temporal resolution. The highest values measured exceeded typical mean values in urban air by a factor of one thousand, as was reported in ACP journal. ...> Full Article


Re-thinking Southern California earthquake scenarios in Coachella Valley, San Andreas Fault (12/15/2014)

Re-thinking Southern California earthquake scenarios in  Coachella Valley, San Andreas FaultNew 3-D numerical modeling that captures far more geometric complexity of an active fault segment in southern California than any other, suggests that the overall earthquake hazard for towns on the west side of the Coachella Valley such as Palm Springs and Palm Desert may be slightly lower than previously believed. ...> Full Article
