Fracking's environmental impacts scrutinized (9/30/2014)

Greenhouse gas emissions from the production and use of shale gas would be comparable to conventional natural gas, but the controversial energy source actually faired better than renewables on some environmental impacts, according to new research. ...> Full Article


First eyewitness accounts of mystery volcanic eruption (9/29/2014)

New light has been shed on one of the biggest volcanic eruptions in the last 500 years -- the so-called 'Unknown eruption' -- thanks to an unusual collaboration between a historian and a team of earth scientists at the University of Bristol, UK. ...> Full Article


What set the Earth's plates in motion? (9/28/2014)

What set the Earth's plates in motion?Professor Patrice Rey, from the University of Sydney's School of Geoscience, and his colleagues have a new explanation for the origin of plate tectonics. ...> Full Article


Meteorite that doomed the dinosaurs helped the forests bloom (9/27/2014)

Meteorite that doomed the dinosaurs helped the forests bloom66 million years ago, a 10-km diameter chunk of rock hit the Yucatan peninsula with the force of 100 teratons of TNT. It left a crater more than 150 km across, and the resulting megatsunami, wildfires, global earthquakes and volcanism are widely accepted to have wiped out the dinosaurs and made way for the rise of the mammals. But what happened to the plants on which the dinosaurs fed? ...> Full Article


How a change in slope affects lava flows (9/26/2014)

How a change in slope affects lava flowsAs soon as lava flows from a volcano, exposure to air and wind causes it to start to cool and harden. Rather than hardening evenly, the energy exchange tends to take place primarily at the surface. ...> Full Article


Early Earth less hellish than previously thought (9/25/2014)

Early Earth less hellish than previously thoughtConditions on Earth during its first 500 million years may have been cool enough to form oceans of water instead of being too hot for life to form. ...> Full Article


M 9.0+ possible for subduction zones along 'Ring of Fire,' suggests new study (9/24/2014)

The magnitude of the 2011 Tohoku quake (M 9.0) caught many seismologists by surprise, prompting some to revisit the question of calculating the maximum magnitude earthquake possible for a particular fault. New research offers an alternate view that uses the concept of probable maximum magnitude events over a given period, providing the magnitude and the recurrence rate of extreme events in subduction zones for that period. Most circum Pacific subduction zones can produce earthquakes of magnitude greater than 9.0, suggests the study. ...> Full Article


Wastewater injection is culprit for most quakes in southern Colorado and northern New Mexico (9/23/2014)

The deep injection of wastewater underground is responsible for the dramatic rise in the number of earthquakes in Colorado and New Mexico since 2001, according to a study to be published in the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America. ...> Full Article


Contaminated water in 2 states linked to faulty shale gas wells (9/19/2014)

Faulty well integrity, not hydraulic fracturing deep underground, is the primary cause of drinking water contamination from shale gas extraction in parts of Pennsylvania and Texas, according to a study by researchers from five universities. The study, which is the first to document methane contamination occurring in previously unaffected water wells, used both hydrocarbon and noble gas tracers to track the contamination back to leaks in gas well casings and cementing. ...> Full Article


Gas leaks from faulty wells linked to contamination in some groundwater (9/18/2014)

A study has pinpointed the likely source of most natural gas contamination in drinking-water wells associated with hydraulic fracturing, and it's not the source many people may have feared. ...> Full Article


Asian monsoon much older than previously thought (9/17/2014)

Asian monsoon much older than previously thoughtThe Asian monsoon already existed 40 million years ago during a period of high atmospheric carbon dioxide and warmer temperatures, an international research team led by a University of Arizona geoscientist reports in the journal Nature. Scientists thought the climate pattern known as the Asian monsoon began 22-25 million years ago as a result of the uplift of the Tibetan Plateau and the Himalaya Mountains. ...> Full Article


Microscopic diamonds suggest cosmic impact responsible for major period of climate change (9/15/2014)

A new study published in the Journal of Geology provides support for the theory that a cosmic impact event over North America some 13,000 years ago caused a major period of climate change known as the Younger Dryas stadial, or 'Big Freeze.' ...> Full Article


Seismic gap may be filled by an earthquake near Istanbul (9/14/2014)

Mystery solved: 'Sailing stones' of Death Valley seen in action for the first time (9/13/2014)

Racetrack Playa is home to an enduring Death Valley mystery. Littered across the surface of this dry lake, also called a 'playa,' are hundreds of rocks -- some weighing as much as 320 kilograms (700 pounds) -- that seem to have been dragged across the ground, leaving synchronized trails that can stretch for hundreds of meters. ...> Full Article


Living in the shadow of Mauna Loa: A silent summit belies a volcano's forgotten fury (9/12/2014)

Earth's largest active volcano, Mauna Loa on Hawaii's Big Island, is taking a nap. And after 30 years, no one is sure when the sleeping giant will awaken. Scientists say it's likely to erupt again within the next couple of decades and, when it does, it will be spectacular -- and potentially dangerous. ...> Full Article
