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)

After tracking seismic shifts, researchers say a major quake may occur off the coast of Istanbul. ...> Full Article


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


Textbook theory behind volcanoes may be wrong (9/11/2014)

In the typical textbook picture, volcanoes, such as those that are forming the Hawaiian islands, erupt when magma gushes out as narrow jets from deep inside Earth. But that picture is wrong, according to a new study from researchers at Caltech and the University of Miami in Florida, who conclude that seismology data are now confirming that such narrow jets don't actually exist. ...> Full Article


Past temperature in Greenland adjusted (9/9/2014)

Past temperature in Greenland adjustedOne of the common perceptions about the climate is that the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, solar radiation and temperature follow each other. This correlation is also seen in the Greenland ice cores. But during a period of several thousand years up until the last ice age ended approximately 12,000 years ago, this pattern did not fit and this was a mystery to researchers. Now researchers from the Niels Bohr Institute have solved this mystery using new analytical techniques. ...> Full Article


Birth of a mineral (9/8/2014)

Birth of a mineralOne of the most important molecules on earth, calcium carbonate crystallizes into chalk, shells and minerals the world over. In a study led by the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, researchers used a powerful microscope that allows them to see the birth of crystals in real time, giving them a peek at how different calcium carbonate crystals form, they report in Sept. 5 issue of Science. ...> Full Article


Trinity geologists re-write Earth's evolutionary history books (9/7/2014)

Trinity geologists re-write Earth's evolutionary history booksLife forms appeared at least 60 million years earlier than previously thought. They added oxygen to our atmosphere, which led to the evolution of complex life. ...> Full Article


Mantle plumes crack continents (9/6/2014)

Using a simulation with an unprecedentedly high resolution, Earth scientists from University of Paris VI and ETH Zurich have shown that magma columns in the Earth's interior can cause continental breakup -- but only if the Earth's skin is already taut. ...> Full Article


Scientists obtain new data on the weather 10,000 years ago from sediments of a lake in Sierra Nevada (9/5/2014)

Scientists obtain new data on the weather 10,000 years ago from sediments of a lake in Sierra NevadaScientists have found evidence of atmospheric dust from the Sahara in the depths of the Rio Seco lake, 3,020 meters above sea level, accumulated over the last 11,000 years. ...> Full Article


Experts defend operational earthquake forecasting, counter critiques (9/4/2014)

Experts defend operational earthquake forecasting (OEF) in an editorial published in the Seismological Research Letters, arguing the importance of public communication as part of a suite of activities intended to improve public safety and mitigate damage from earthquakes. In a related article, Italian scientists detail the first official OEF system in Italy. ...> Full Article


Likely near-simultaneous earthquakes complicate seismic hazard planning for Italy (9/3/2014)

Before the shaking from one earthquake ends, shaking from another might begin, amplifying the effect of ground motion. Such sequences of closely timed, nearly overlapping, consecutive earthquakes account for devastating seismic events in Italy's history and should be taken into account when building new structures, according to research published in the September issue of the journal Seismological Research Letters. ...> Full Article


Yellowstone supereruption would send ash across North America (9/2/2014)

Yellowstone supereruption would send ash across North AmericaIn the unlikely event of a volcanic supereruption at Yellowstone National Park, the northern Rocky Mountains would be blanketed in meters of ash, and millimeters would be deposited as far away as New York City, Los Angeles and Miami, according to a new study. ...> Full Article
