Mississippi River Sediments Plentiful Enough To Rebuild Shrinking Delta
2014-04-21 12:58:29

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online While flood-control measures have kept the Mississippi River from disrupting commerce and transportation along the waterways of southern Louisiana, they have also reduced the amount of wetland-preserving sediment flowing into the river’s delta. However, a new study published in the journal Nature Geoscience reports encouraging news: the amount of sediment contained in the river is more than enough to rebuild the Mississippi’s...

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Authorities in Peru have called for the evacuation of 4,000 people living around the Ubinas volcano, which has been erupting ash clouds up to two miles into the sky. The evacuation includes people from two regional districts: Moquegua and Arequipa. According to Notimerica, the Ubinas volcano "is not only a threat to the human population in both districts, but the entire population of llamas (llamas , alpacas and vicuna ) which...

Understanding How Climatic Relationships Led To Major Ice Age Cycles
2014-04-17 07:45:44

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study has developed crucial new information about how the ice ages came about based on newly discovered relationships between deep-sea temperature and ice-volume changes. The international team of researchers, led by the University of Southampton, developed a new method for determining sea-level and deep-see temperature variability over the past 5.3 million years. Their findings were published in a recent issue of Nature. The...

Researchers Find Rare Fossilized Embryos More Than 500 Million Years Old
2014-04-11 13:06:23

Jeff Sossamon, University of Missouri The Cambrian Period is a time when most phyla of marine invertebrates first appeared in the fossil record. Also dubbed the “Cambrian explosion,” fossilized records from this time provide glimpses into evolutionary biology when the world’s ecosystems rapidly changed and diversified. Most fossils show the organisms’ skeletal structure, which may or may not give researchers accurate pictures of these prehistoric organisms. Now, researchers at the...

It is thought to be potentially active and was named for the needle like projections that protrude from it. These lava spines, or hoodoos, reach heights of 492 feet, making it the most distinct mountain in that area of the Boundary Ranges. Hoodoo Mountain is primarily flat-topped, which led volcanologist Jack Souther...
