A study led by Dr Caitlin Lawson is the first to explore the mix of volatile gases emitted by healthy and stressed corals, identifying a distinct chemical diversity among compounds that may play important – but previously unrecognised – roles in reef functioning.
Methane, the main component of natural gas, is the cleanest-burning of all the fossil fuels, but when emitted into the atmosphere it is a much more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.
Sea ice and waterways along the north side of Canada’s high-Arctic island reveal compelling patterns when viewed from above.
The river’s high sediment load contributes to the abrupt change in its shape as it exits the Himalayas and hits flatter land.
The region of rolling hills and valleys is part of a geologic formation known as the Ridge and Valley Province that stretches from New York to Alabama.
The Sierra Madre Oriental is part of a chain that stretches across three continents.
Human activity endangers coral health around the world.
A new study led by researchers at UC San Francisco has found that among older Americans with cognitive impairment, the greater the air pollution in their neighborhood, the higher the likelihood of amyloid plaques – a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease.
In a ground-breaking new study, scientists used innovative molecular techniques to explain how corals on the east coast of Australia survived previous tough conditions—enabling the Great Barrier Reef to become the vast reef it is today.
As temperatures rise due to climate change, the melting of polar ice sheets is accelerating.
