Newly Discovered Greenland Plume Drives Thermal Activities in the Arctic

A team of researchers understands more about the melting of the Greenland ice sheet. They discovered a flow of hot rocks, known as a mantle plume, rising from the core-mantle boundary beneath central ...

More Responsive COVID-19 Wastewater Testing

A new wastewater testing approach capable of better detecting viral infection patterns in communities could prove a crucial step toward an informed public health response to diseases like ...

Research Reveals How Airflow Inside a Car May Affect COVID-19 Transmission Risk

A new study uses computer simulations to track airflows inside a car's passenger cabin, providing potential strategies -- some of them counterintuitive -- for reducing the risk of transmitting ...

Researchers used millimeter-sized crystals from the 1959 eruption of Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano to test models that offer insights about flow conditions prior to and during an ...

The Climate Changed Rapidly Alongside Sea Ice Decline in the North

Researchers have shown that abrupt climate change occurred as a result of widespread decrease of sea ice. This scientific breakthrough concludes a long-lasting debate on the mechanisms causing abrupt ...

Researchers have used magnetism to determine, for the first time, when asteroids that are rich in water and amino acids first arrived in the inner solar ...

Satellite Tag Tracks Activity Levels of Highly Migratory Species Across the Vast Ocean

Scientists have released a new activity data product application for marine animal tracking. The technology is designed to remotely track and transmit data gathered on an animal's activity ...

Scientists Took a Rare Chance to Prove We Can Quantify Biodiversity by 'Testing the Water'

While extraction of DNA from water samples provides a convenient and non-invasive way to study aquatic biodiversity, reliable evidence that this approach is accurate enough to estimate the number of ...

Bacteria in Iron-Deficient Environments Process Carbon Sources Selectively

Looking at a group of bacteria from soil, researchers discovered that these organisms overcome limitation in their carbon processing machinery by rerouting their metabolic pathways to favor producing ...

How Bean Plants Fend Off Famished Foes

Scientists have discovered that cowpeas -- a type of bean plant -- harbor receptors on the surface of their cells that can detect a compound in caterpillar saliva and initiate anti-herbivore ...

Leaf Microbiomes Are a Neighborhood Affair in Northern Forests

Leaf microbiomes of sugar maple trees vary across the species' range, changing in accordance with the types of trees in the surrounding ...

Researchers Discover Life in Deep Ocean Sediments at or Above Water's Boiling Point

Biologists found single-celled organisms living in sediments 1180 meters beneath the ocean at temperatures of 120 degrees ...

Natural Selection Plays Major Role in an Organism's Capacity to Evolve and Adapt

It's widely assumed within the evolutionary biology field that weak selection provides an advantage to an organism's ability to evolve. But new research may offer the first experimental ...

Tire-Related Chemical Is Largely Responsible for Adult Coho Salmon Deaths in Urban Streams

Scientists have discovered a chemical that kills coho salmon in urban streams before the fish can ...

Shuttering Fossil Fuel Power Plants May Cost Less Than Expected

Decarbonizing US electricity production will require both construction of renewable energy sources and retirement of power plants now operated by fossil fuels. A generator-level model suggests that ...

How Plants Compete for Underground Real Estate Affects Climate Change and Food Production

How do plant roots store carbon? Researchers found that the energy a plant devotes to its roots depends on proximity to other plants: when close together, plants heavily invest in their root systems ...

Robot Fleet Dives for Climate Answers in 'Marine Snow'

Sailing from Hobart, twenty researchers hope to capture the most detailed picture yet of how marine life in the Southern Ocean captures and stores carbon from the ...

Coasts Drown as Coral Reefs Collapse Under Warming and Acidification

The coastal protection coral reefs currently provide will start eroding by the end of the century, as the world continues to warm and the oceans acidify. The rate of erosion of calcium carbonate on ...

Scientists Predict 'Optimal' Stress Levels

Scientists have created an evolutionary model to predict how animals should react in stressful ...

Cluster of Alaskan Islands Could Be Single, Interconnected Giant Volcano

A small group of volcanic islands in Alaska's Aleutian chain might be part of a single, undiscovered giant volcano, say scientists. If the researchers' suspicions are correct, the newfound ...
