    GPS reveals volcanic activity under Europe

    Lurker
    By Lurker,
    Scientists have discovered new evidence for active volcanism next door to some of the most densely populated areas of Europe. The study crowdsourced GPS monitoring data from antennae across western Europe to track subtle movements in the Earth’s surface, thought to be caused by a rising subsurface mantle plume. The Eifel region lies roughly between the cities of Aachen, Trier and Koblenz, in west-central Germany. It is home to many ancient volcanic features, including the circular lakes kno

    NASA has launched one of its most crucial science missions to date, the Mars  2020 mission that carries its Perseverance robotic rover. This rover, a successor to the Curiosity robotic explorer, is equipped with sensors specifically designed to help it hopefully fund evidence of ancient, microbiotic life on Mars. Mars 2020 departed from Cape Canaveral in Florida at 7:50 AM EDT (4:50 PM PDT). Perseverance was loaded atop a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket, which had a good liftoff

    Historic carbon dioxide decline could hold clues for future climate

    A new study led by researchers at The Australian National University (ANU) provides a clearer snapshot of conditions during the last ice age—when global ice sheets were at their peak—and could even lead to better models for future climate projections.   The study demonstrates a new way of recreating ocean conditions in the Atlantic during the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM)—around 20,000 years ago.   Lead author Dr. Jimin Yu says scientists have been trying to reconstruct ocean ci

    Remote Sensing uncover widespread illegal fishing in Pacific Ocean

    Scofflaw ships hauled in more than 176,000 tons of Pacific flying squid in North Korean waters in 2017 and 2018. A 55- to 60-meter lighting vessel of Chinese origin near North Korean waters. This vessel had its four arm-like structures deployed and flew both North Korean and Chinese flags.   Satellite imagery has dragged "dark" fishing fleets out into the light.   Orbital observations have revealed extensive illegal fishing of Pacific flying squid (Todarodes pacificus) i

    Marine Species are Shifting Towards the Poles

    Lurker
    By Lurker,
    Global warming has caused a shift in species’ ideal habitats, prompting everything from mushrooms to trees, mammals to amphibians and other terrestrial species to seek out different ecological zones in which to thrive. New research is collecting data on marine species that are also experiencing climate related habitat migrations in greater numbers than scientists anticipated. As species’ normal habitats are becoming warmer, habitat is lost due to human infrastructure, or habitats are becomi
