Latest European Geosciences Union Stories
As fishing and the harvesting of metals, gas and oil have expanded deeper and deeper into the ocean, scientists are drawing attention to the services provided by the deep sea, the world’s largest environment.
New research suggests that Antarctic sea ice may not be expanding as fast as previously thought. A team of scientists say much of the increase measured for Southern Hemisphere sea ice could be due to a processing error in the satellite data.
UK researchers have identified a biological mechanism that could explain how the Earth’s atmospheric carbon dioxide and climate were stabilized over the past 24 million years.
Over 80% of the world's ice-free land is at risk of profound ecosystem transformation by 2100, a new study reveals.
As the climate changes and oceans' acidity increases, tiny plankton seem set to succeed.
As the world starts feeling the effects of increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide and consequent global temperature rise, researchers are looking for a Plan B to mitigate climate change.
Researchers have shown that, by using global positioning systems (GPS) to measure ground deformation caused by a large underwater earthquake, they can provide accurate warning of the resulting tsunami in just a few minutes after the earthquake onset.
Most of the world's population will be subject to degraded air quality in 2050 if man-made emissions continue as usual.
Geoengineering is a field of study that proposes techniques to reduce the amount of solar radiation reaching the Earth's surface.
Seismic risk at the Fukushima nuclear plant increased after the magnitude 9 earthquake that hit Japan last March, scientists report.
