Machine-mounted sensors, being developed through CSIRO Minerals Down Under Flagship, could help locate ore deposits, characterize the mining environment, and differentiate ore grades.
This summerâ€™s melt of Arctic sea ice might not have been quite as bad as the past two years, but satellite images reveal that it has now had the third biggest melt in 30 years.
Arctic and Antarctic research teams pulled back to warmer climates when the International Polar Year wrapped last March.
U.S. scientists using satellite data and records from cold war submarine missions have found Arctic Ocean ice thickness has declined 53 percent since 1980. This summer, a group of U.S.
This summer, a group of scientists and students â€” as well as a Canadian senator, a writer, and a filmmaker â€” set out from Resolute Bay, Canada, on the icebreaker Louis S. St-Laurent.
Hundreds of images derived from classified data that could be used to better understand rapid loss and transformation of Arctic sea ice should be immediately released and disseminated to the scientific research community, says a new report from the National Research Council.
The Yucca Mountain crest in Nevada, USA has been proposed as a permanent site for high level radioactive waste. But a new study, already published as an article in press by Elsevier's journal Geomorphology and recently included in the Research Highlights of Nature, shows that there may be erosion of the crest.
Autonomous vehicle developed by the University of Washington is an element of Arctic Observing Network, an International Polar Year research priority.
A newly initiated campaign marks an important step in preparing for how data from the Sentinel-1 European Radar Observatory will be used for applications such as land-cover mapping and crop management. Sentinel-1 is the first of the five missions that ESA is developing for the GMES initiative.
Environmental science is a science that contains a wide range of scientific disciplines. These disciplines are grouped together based on the natural environment which they encompass and interact with. These sciences include physical, chemical, and biological components. Environmental science provides an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the environmental systems. The most common way environmental science is studied is through the work of one individual or small team drawing on the...
Earth science (or geoscience) is the science of the planet Earth. Earth science can be broken down into four major disciplines, which are: geography, geology, geophysics, and geodesy. These disciplines use physics, chemistry, biology, chronology and mathematics to arrive to a greater understanding of the principal areas of the Earth system. Since Earth is the only known life-bearing planet, Earth science is solely dedicated to the geophysical makeup of our own planet. One discipline,...
