Scientists have taken a closer look at sea level rise and the effects of this erosion, and have found that the coastal erosion of Hawai'i's beaches may actually double by mid-century.
GPS and satellite data can be used in a real-time, coordinated effort to fully characterize a fault line within 24 hours of an earthquake, ensuring that aid is delivered faster and more accurately than ever before.
Water is essential to life on Earth. But what happens when demand outpaces the supply of water? Scientists have found that population growth could very well cause the global demand for water to outpace supply by the mid-century if current levels of consumption continue.
Scientists may have picked up a few tips and tricks from the rattlesnake as they designed their undulating snake-like robots. They've looked at the real thing in order to create a robot capable of taking rapid and even sharp turns.
The Gulf Stream system is one of Earth's most important heat transport systems. Now, though, scientists have found evidence for a slowdown of this system, which could have major implications for climate.
If you heard that you were infected with two parasites, you'd probably think of this as a really bad thing. Well, not necessarily, according to recent findings published in the journal of Science Advances (at least for cattle, that is.)
Using a protein that's key to a squid's color-changing body, researchers have designed "invisibility stickers" that could one day help soldiers disguise themselves.
Where did the largest asteroid impacts occur on our planet? It turns out that Australia holds the record.
Scientists have found that chlorine, a disinfectant commonly used in most wastewater treatment plants, may be failing to completely eliminate pharmaceuticals from waste.
It turns out that being near "green" areas may lower stress. Scientists have found that residents who walked near newly greened vacant lots had significantly lower heart rates compared to walking near a vacant lot.
Did you know that there are mushrooms that glow? Scientists have long known that these intriguing fungi have the ability to emit light, but researchers have long wondered why.
