Blue Holes Show Hurricane Activity in the Bahamas Is at a Centuries-Long Low | Science

Blue holes, like the Great Blue Hole in Belize, have vast caverns that descend into the seafloor. Sediment accumulates at the bottom of a blue hole, giving researchers a way to gauge historical hurricane activity. Ian Bottle The 2021 Atlantic hurricane season was the third most active in 171 years of record-keeping. The 2020 season … Read more

Reshuffled Rivers Bolster the Amazon’s Hyper-Biodiversity

From the window of a passenger plane flying over the Amazon, the view is breathtaking. “It’s just miles across the river and river islands,” said Lukas Musher, a postdoctoral researcher at Drexel University’s Academy of Natural Sciences. The massive rivers below branch into a dense, treelike network that has continuously rearranged itself over hundreds of … Read more

Remember When Life was Found in a Martian Meteorite? Turns out, it was Just Geology

The Alan Hills meteorite is a part of history to Mars aficionados. It came from Mars and meteorite hunters discovered in Antarctica in 1984. Scientists think it’s one of the oldest rock chunks to come from Mars and make it to Earth. The meteorite made headlines in 1996 when a team of researchers said they … Read more

Donald Ramsay, emeritus professor of geology at the University of Dundee, has died aged 89. In 1959 he began what became a lifelong obsession, spending the next 40 summers conducting research in northern Norway. As few people spoke English in the far north then, he picked up some Norwegian. One summer, on a visit to … Read more

Yellowstone’s history of hydrothermal explosions over the past 14,000 years

Newswise – Boulder, Colo .: While much of public attention on Yellowstone focuses on its potential to produce large supereruptions, the hazards that are much more likely to occur are smaller, violent hydrothermal explosions. Hydrothermal explosions occur when near-boiling water suddenly flashes into steam, releasing large amounts of energy. The energy release fractures the rock … Read more
