I am back in Bangladesh to explore the distribution of fresh and saline groundwater in the coastal zone, needed for drinking in the dry season.
For the last week of our trip, we traveled by boat to reach the sites where we are measuring subsidence in the Sundarban Mangrove Forest and nearby embanked islands.
After a week of meetings and a wedding in Dhaka, we headed back to the field to service equipment measuring land subsidence in Bangladesh.
I am finally back in Bangladesh after a pandemic hiatus. I need to repair precision GPSs that failed over the last few years. They are measuring tectonic movements for earthquake hazard and land subsidence, which exacerbates sea level rise.
Researchers have zeroed in on what they call the Last Ice Area, where the last year-round Arctic ice, and associated ecosystems may–or may not–survive in a warmer future.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) should create an initiative to explore the interactions between human society and the systems of the natural world, says a new report.
Earth Institute researchers are in the field studying the dynamics of the planet on every continent and every ocean. Here is a list of projects.
By sampling snow from glaciers and tracking pollutants back to their source, the study reveals pathways to reduce harmful pollution in the Indian Western Himalayas.
New research suggests that trees may handle predicted drier conditions better than current models suggest.
