Black soot deposited on Tibetan glaciers has contributed significantly to the retreat of the world's largest non-polar ice masses, according to new research by scientists from NASA and the Chinese Academy of Sciences. Soot absorbs incoming solar radiation and can speed glacial melting when deposited on snow in sufficient quantities. Temperatures on the Tibetan Plateau -- sometimes called Earth's "third pole" -- have warmed by 0.3°C (0.5°F) per decade over the past 30 years, about...

Ostrich eggshell (OES) beads from SDG site reflect primordial art and a kind of symbolic behavior of modern humans. Two different manufacturing pathways are usually used in the manufacture of OES beads in Upper Paleolithic. Pathway 1 is identified from these collections; blanks are drilled prior to being trimmed to rough discs. Based on stratigraphic data and OSL dating, these ostrich eggshell beads are probably in Early Holocene (ï¼ 10 ka BP). The study has been reported...

Scientists have discovered that a small dinosaur which lived 100 million years ago in northeastern China was covered with course, hairlike fuzz, suggesting that feathers may have evolved much earlier than previously believed.  Although feathers and so-called "dinofuzz" have been previously identified in theropods, two-legged carnivores that are widely believed to be the ancestors of modern birds, the Chinese creature is only remotely related to theropods, and the hollow threads of...
