Mars Rock Dating Analysis
2013-12-13 10:15:24

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online While scientists have analyzed the age of rock samples from other planetary bodies before, the work has always been performed on Earth. Now, an international team of scientists has announced the first-ever geological analysis of a rock sample performed on another celestial body – Mars. According to a report in the journal Science Express, the on-planet analysis could lead to a greater understanding of Mars’ geologic history and the...

Long Unchanged Alpine Glacier Is Now Melting At Unprecedented Rate
2013-12-12 06:35:56

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online An international team of glaciologists, led by Ohio State University, has discovered new and compelling evidence that the Italian Alps are warming at an unprecedented rate. The discovery, described at the annual autumn meeting of the American Geophysical Union this past week, was made less than 20 miles from the site where melting ice exposed the 5,000-year-old body of Ötzi the Iceman. A single, dried-out leaf from a larch tree...

Moraine Research May Alter Thinking On Climate’s Effect On Glaciers
2013-11-20 07:58:56

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online A Dartmouth College-led study published in the latest edition of the journal Quaternary Geochronology describes a newly discovered, more accurate method to date the soil and rock debris left behind by high altitude tropical glaciers. The research could alter pre-existing interpretations of how climate change affected equatorial ice masses, the study authors explained in a statement Tuesday. Currently, scientists use a variety of...

Antarctic Glacial Melt May Be Natural
2013-04-15 11:05:27

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online As the debate over climate change continues, so does the publication of studies that support or challenge the notion that human activity is the main driver of rising temperatures. According to a new study in“¯Nature Geoscience, the dramatic thinning of glaciers in Western Antarctica is due to natural variation, and cannot be attributed directly to carbon emissions. "If we could look back at this region of Antarctica in...

Peruvian Ice Cores Reveal History Of Earth's Tropical Climate
2013-04-05 13:11:38

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Earth's tropical climate history has been revealed in unprecedented detail — year by year, for almost 1,800 years — by two annually dated ice cores drawn from the tropical Peruvian Andes. In 2003, a research team led by Ohio State University retrieved core samples from a Peruvian ice cap. They noticed some startling similarities to ice cores they had gathered from Tibet and the Himalayas. Even though the cores were taken...

In the March issue of GSA Today, seven scientists from six countries, led by Jan Zalasiewicz of the University of Leicester, propose a realignment of the terms "geochronology" and "chronostratigraphy" in an attempt to resolve the debate of whether units of the Geological Time Scale should have a single (time) or dual (time and time-rock) hierarchy. In their system, which retains both parallel sets of units, with an option to adopt one or other when appropriate, geochronology refers to all...

Credit: Rémih/Wikipedia (CC BY-SA 3.0) Tenontosaurus, meaning “sinew lizard”, is a genus of medium to large sized ornithopod dinosaur. The genus is known from the late Aptian to Albian ages of the middle Cretaceious period sediments of western North America, dating roughly between 115 to 108 million years ago. It was formerly thought to be a ‘hypsilophodont’, but since Hypsilophodontia is no...

Sharpirhynchia sharpi
2014-01-12 00:00:00

Sharpirhynchia sharpi is a species of extinct brachiopod named after fossil collector Samuel Sharp (1814-1882). This species lived during the Lower Bathonian of the Middle Jurassic Period. It is found only in the United Kingdom, and numerous specimens have been taken from several sites, the first from Limekiln Quarry in Northampton, England. S. sharpi is roughly a half-inch long, with a slender beak and 21 to 31 ribs fanning out from the hinge. This lampshell brachiopod lived life as a...

Sauroposeidon, meaning “earthquake god lizard,” is a genus of sauropods dinosaur from the Aptian and Albian ages of the Early Cretaceous Period (110 million years ago). It was discovered in the southeast region of Atoka County, Oklahoma, not far from the border of Texas, in a claystone outcrop. The fossils were initially misidentified as pieces of petrified wood when they were found in 1994. A more detailed analysis in 1999 revealed they were truly dinosaurian bones. They were formally...

Qiaowanlong is a genus of sauropod dinosaur from the Albian stage of the Early Cretaceous Period (100 million years ago). It was discovered in the Yujinzi Basin of Gansu, China in 2007. It came from the geological formation called the Xinminpu Group. Qiaowanlong is known from articulated cervical (neck) vertebrae and a right pelvic girdle, as well as several unidentified bone fragments. It was the first brachiosaurid to have been found from China. Qiaowanlong is estimated to have been...

Qantassaurus was discovered in 1996 during the third annual field season of the Dinosaur Dreaming Project, a dig jointly run by Monash University and Museum Victoria. It was found in the intertidal site known as Flat...
