For the first time, scientists have mapped in detail water locked in a deep basin far under the Antarctic ice. The discovery could have implications for how the continent reacts to, or even contributes to, climate change.
A peculiar seismic signal was the first indication of a gigantic landslide and subsequent tsunami in the remote mountains of British Columbia. It detected what may be a growing climate-related threat.
Forest cover in many tropical regions increased in recent decades, but a new study suggests that much of the regenerated area is re-cleared within a few years, which could limit biodiversity and carbon storage benefits.
Research into volcanoes in the Aleutian Islands and elsewhere overturns the conventional understanding of what controls the depth at which rising magma is stored.
The central section of the great fault spanning California, thought to be creeping along harmlessly at the moment, has experienced big quakes in the past, says a new study.
Climate change threatens to destroy invaluable heritage sites and traditions in marginalized countries — but empowering local people is key to saving it.
New findings may help inform discussions as the Supreme Court takes up a case that could limit wetland protections under the Clean Water Act.
Lisa Goddard, longtime director of the International Research Institute for Climate and Society, has died.
The past eight years are the warmest since modern record keeping began in 1880.
