Move Over Jules Verne -- Scientists Deploy Ocean Floats to Peer into Earth’s Interior

Acoustical Society of America (ASA)

The release of more than 50 floating sensors, called Mobile Earthquake Recording in Marine Areas by Independent Divers (MERMAIDs), is increasing the number of seismic stations around the planet. Scientists will use them to clarify the picture of the massive mantel plume in the lower mantel lying below the South Pacific Ocean. This effort will also establish one of the most comprehensive overviews of seismic activity across the globe. Frederik Simons will discuss this international effort during the marine seismoacoustics session of the 178th ASA Meeting.

Newswise: SDSC’s Comet Supercomputer Helps Researchers Predict Carbon Dioxide Levels

SDSC’s Comet Supercomputer Helps Researchers Predict Carbon Dioxide Levels

University of California San Diego

The Global Change Biology Journal earlier this year published findings related to the Effects of 21st Century Climate, Land Use, and Disturbances on Ecosystem Carbon Balance in California after using the San Diego Supercomputer Center’s Comet supercomputer to create simulations of various global climate, land-use, and emissions models.

Newswise: Solving the Mystery of Carbon on Ocean Floor

Solving the Mystery of Carbon on Ocean Floor

University of Delaware

Little bits of black carbon littering the ocean floor, separate and distinct from the organic carbon believed to come from the ocean’s surface. The source of that strange, and older, carbon has now been identified by UD researchers. The discovery is an important step in understanding the marine carbon cycle.

Extra-terrestrial impacts may have triggered 'bursts' of plate tectonics

Geological Society of America (GSA)

When -- and how -- Earth's surface evolved from a hot, primordial mush into a rocky planet continually resurfaced by plate tectonics remain some of the biggest unanswered questions in earth science research. Now a new study, published in Geology, suggests this earthly transition may in fact have been triggered by extra-terrestrial impacts.

Newswise: Communities must band together to protect against bushfires

Communities must band together to protect against bushfires

University of South Australia

As Australia confronts devastating bushfire conditions, people across the nation are doing all they can to ensure the safety of their homes, property and loved ones. But while many individuals are responding well to bushfire risks, a lack of preparation on the community level could be hampering their efforts, according to new research from the University of South Australia.

El Nino Swings More Violently in the Industrial Age, Compelling Evidence Says

Georgia Institute of Technology

Enough physical evidence spanning millennia has now come together to allow researchers to say definitively that: El Ninos, La Ninas, and the climate phenomenon that drives them have become more extreme in the times of human-induced climate change.
