The Storegga event, which happened off the coast of Norway, is one of the largest underwater landslides known. It happened about 8,150 years ago after the last ice age ended and caused a huge tsunami that destroyed the North Atlantic and what was then the North Sea.
According to new research ionospheric tracking could help improve tsunami forecasting and, in the future, track ash plumes and other impacts after a volcanic eruption.
A new type of tropical cyclone, the SETIO cyclone has been identified. New sudy findings suggest the absence or presence of SETIO cyclones contributes to variability of the Indian Ocean Dipole.
Above-average temperatures almost always follow tropical cyclones and can reach nearly 10 degrees Fahrenheit above average, new research finds.
The first mass extinction on Earth may have been caused by abrupt changes in marine oxygen levels. The Late Ordovician mass extinction, which wiped out about 85% of marine species, occurred 443 million years ago
Experts have created WorldStrat, a global open-source dataset of high-resolution images of Earth that is the most comprehensive and in-depth of its kind. Nearly 10,000 km2 of free satellite images are included in the WorldStrat dataset
Fresh research provides the first indication that upper atmospheric shrinking has started on a global scale
NASA scientists say that by the end of this century, spring cyclones in the Arctic will be stronger. This is because sea ice is melting and temperatures are rising quickly.
