Scientists identify mechanism that accelerated the 2011 Japan earthquake (12/21/2014)

Stanford scientists identify a mechanism that accelerated the 2011 Japan earthquake. ...> 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


Antarctica: Heat comes from the deep (12/14/2014)

The water temperatures on the West Antarctic shelf are rising. The reason for this is predominantly warm water from greater depths, which as a result of global change now increasingly reaches the shallow shelf. There it has the potential to accelerate the glacier melt from below and trigger the sliding of big glaciers. These data are published today by scientists of the GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel together with colleagues from the UK, the US and Japan in the international journal Science. ...> Full Article


Geophysicists challenge traditional theory underlying the origin of mid-plate volcanoes (12/13/2014)

Geophysicists challenge traditional theory underlying the origin of mid-plate volcanoesGeophysicists from Virginia Tech and Caltech point to a super-hot layer beneath the tectonic plates as the place of origin for volcanoes, as opposed to deep within the Earth's core. ...> Full Article


West Antarctic melt rate has tripled: UC Irvine-NASA (12/9/2014)

A comprehensive, 21-year analysis of the fastest-melting region of Antarctica has found that the melt rate of glaciers there has tripled during the last decade. ...> Full Article


New research highlights the key role of ozone in climate change (12/8/2014)

The models which are used to predict how climate change will occur could be much improved by including the key role of ozone, which is often overlooked in current models. ...> Full Article


UW team explores large, restless volcanic field in Chile (12/7/2014)

For seven years, an area larger than the city of Madison has been rising by 10 inches per year. That rapid rise provides a major scientific opportunity: to explore a mega-volcano before it erupts. That effort, and the hazard posed by the restless magma reservoir beneath Laguna del Maule, are described in a major research article in the December issue of GSA Today. ...> Full Article


First harvest of research based on the final GOCE gravity model (12/6/2014)

First harvest of research based on the final GOCE gravity modelJust four months after the final data package from ESA's GOCE satellite mission was delivered, researchers are laying out a rich harvest of scientific results at the 5th International GOCE User Workshop in Paris. The GOCE Gravity Consortium, coordinated by the Technische Universität München, produced all of the mission's data products. On this basis, studies in geophysics, geology, ocean circulation, climate change, and civil engineering are sharpening the picture of our dynamic planet. ...> Full Article


Asteroid impacts on Earth make structurally bizarre diamonds (12/5/2014)

Asteroid impacts on Earth make structurally bizarre diamondsArizona State University scientists have settled a longstanding controversy over a purported rare form of diamond called lonsdaleite -- a type of diamond formed by impact shock, but which lacks the three-dimensional regularity of ordinary diamond. ...> Full Article


ASU, IBM move ultrafast, low-cost DNA sequencing technology a step closer to reality (12/4/2014)

ASU, IBM move ultrafast, low-cost DNA sequencing technology a step closer to realityA team of scientists from Arizona State University's Biodesign Institute and IBM's T.J. Watson Research Center have developed a prototype DNA reader that could make whole genome profiling an everyday practice in medicine. "Our goal is to put cheap, simple and powerful DNA and protein diagnostic devices into every single doctor's office," said Stuart Lindsay, an ASU physics professor and director of Biodesign's Center for Single Molecule Biophysics. Such technology could help usher in the age of personalized medicine. ...> Full Article
