Geology News & Research

Past climate change and continental ice melt linked to varying CO2 levels (10/24/2014)

Scientists at the Universities of Southampton and Cardiff have discovered that a globally warm period in Earth's geological past featured highly variable levels of CO2. ...> Full Article


Hydraulic fracturing linked to earthquakes in Ohio (10/23/2014)

Hydraulic fracturing triggered a series of small earthquakes in 2013 on a previously unmapped fault in Harrison County, Ohio, according to a study published in the journal Seismological Research Letters. ...> Full Article


Earth's magnetic field could flip within a human lifetime (10/22/2014)

Earth's magnetic field could flip within a human lifetimeA study by scientists from Italy, France, UC Berkeley and Columbia University demonstrates that Earth's last magnetic reversal took place 786,000 years ago and happened very quickly, in less than 100 years -- roughly a human lifetime. The rapid flip, much faster than the thousands of years most geologists thought, comes as new measurements show the planet's magnetic field is weakening 10 times faster than normal and could drop to zero in a few thousand years. ...> Full Article


Icebergs once drifted to Florida, new climate model suggests (10/16/2014)

Icebergs once drifted to Florida, new climate model suggestsUsing a first-of-its-kind, high-resolution numerical model to describe ocean circulation during the last ice age about 21,000 year ago, oceanographer Alan Condron of the University of Massachusetts Amherst has shown that icebergs and meltwater from the North American ice sheet would have regularly reached South Carolina and even southern Florida. The models are supported by the discovery of iceberg scour marks on the sea floor along the entire continental shelf. ...> Full Article


Space-based methane maps find largest US signal in Southwest (10/15/2014)

An unexpectedly high amount of the climate-changing gas methane, the main component of natural gas, is escaping from the Four Corners region in the US Southwest, according to a new study by the University of Michigan and NASA. ...> Full Article


Chicxulub didn't do it all by itself (10/10/2014)

Chicxulub didn't do it all by itselfGeoscientists now overwhelmingly agree that a single large asteroid or comet impact, such as Chicxulub in the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico, could not have been the sole cause of the end-Cretaceous mass extinction. Instead, new research in both planetary/space science and multiple earth-science specialties reveals that concomitant volcanic activity and the associated climate and environmental changes were significant contributing factors in four of the five major mass extinctions in Earth history. ...> Full Article


Team advances understanding of the Greenland Ice Sheet's meltwater channels (10/9/2014)

Team advances understanding of the Greenland Ice Sheet's meltwater channelsA paper in Nature this week notes that observations of moulins (vertical conduits connecting water on top of the glacier down to the bed of the ice sheet) and boreholes in Greenland show that subglacial channels ameliorate the speedup caused by water delivery to the base of the ice sheet in the short term. By mid summer, however, the channels stabilize and are unable to grow any larger. ...> Full Article


New map uncovers thousands of unseen seamounts on ocean floor (10/8/2014)

New map uncovers thousands of unseen seamounts on ocean floorScientists have created a new map of the world's seafloor, offering a more vivid picture of the structures that make up the deepest, least-explored parts of the ocean. ...> Full Article


Researcher receives $1.2 million to create real-time seismic imaging system (10/7/2014)

Researcher receives $1.2 million to create real-time seismic imaging systemDr. WenZhan Song, a professor in the Department of Computer Science at Georgia State University, has received a four-year, $1.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation to create a real-time seismic imaging system using ambient noise. ...> Full Article


Predicting landslides with light (10/6/2014)

A team of researchers in Italy are expanding the reach of optical fiber sensors 'to the hills' by embedding them in shallow trenches within slopes to detect and monitor both large landslides and slow slope movements. The team will present their research at The Optical Society's (OSA) 98th Annual Meeting, Frontiers in Optics, being held Oct. 19-23 in Tucson, Ariz., USA. ...> Full Article


2015 DOE JGI's science portfolio delves deeper into the Earth's data mine (10/5/2014)

In selecting 32 new projects with samples from diverse environments for the 2015 Community Science Program (CSP), the Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute shifts 'from solving an organism's genome sequence to enabling an understanding of what this information enables organisms to do.' The total allocation of the CSP 2015 portfolio is expected to exceed 60 trillion bases -- the equivalent of 20,000 human genomes of plant, fungal and microbial genome sequences. ...> Full Article


Star Trekish, rafting scientists make bold discovery on Fraser River (10/4/2014)

Star Trekish, rafting scientists make bold discovery on Fraser RiverA Simon Fraser University-led team behind a new discovery has '…had the vision to go, like Star Trek, where no one has gone before: to a steep and violent bedrock canyon, with surprising results.'That comment comes from a reviewer about a truly groundbreaking study just published in the journal Nature. ...> Full Article


'Fracking' wastewater that is treated for drinking produces potentially harmful compounds (10/3/2014)

Concerns that fluids from hydraulic fracturing, or 'fracking,' are contaminating drinking water abound. Now, scientists are bringing to light another angle that adds to the controversy. A new study, appearing in the ACS journal Environmental Science & Technology, has found that discharge of fracking wastewaters to rivers, even after passage through wastewater treatment plants, could be putting the drinking water supplies of downstream cities at risk. ...> Full Article


Solar energy-driven process could revolutionize oil sands tailings reclamation (10/2/2014)

Solar energy-driven process could revolutionize oil sands tailings reclamationA civil engineering research team at the University of Alberta has developed a new way to clean oil sands process affected water and reclaim tailings ponds in Alberta's oil sands industry. Using sunlight as a renewable energy source instead of UV lamps, and adding chlorine to the tailings, oil sands process affected water is decontaminated and detoxified -- immediately. ...> Full Article


Snail shells show high-rise plateau is much lower than it used to be (10/1/2014)

Snail shells show high-rise plateau is much lower than it used to beGeologists have long debated when and how the Tibetan Plateau reached a 14,000-foot-plus elevation, but new research shows it once was probably several thousand feet higher. ...> Full Article
