Researchers Examine Way to Undercut Dust Emissions
There is literally a way to undercut dust emissions in the very driest parts of the Pacific Northwest's Columbia Plateau region, according to a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) scientist. View News Article (2011-07-15)

UC Geology Researchers Turn to 3-D Technology to Examine the Formation of Cliffband Landscapes
A blend of photos and technology takes a new twist on studying cliff landscapes and how they were formed. Dylan Ward, a University of Cincinnati assistant professor of geology, will present a case study on this unique technology application at The Geological Society of America's Annual Meeting & Exposition.  View News Article (2014-10-16)

Soil security
A group of leading soil scientists, including the University of Delaware's Donald L. Sparks, has summarized the precarious state of the world's soil resources and the possible ramifications for human security in a paper published Thursday, May 7, in the journal Science. View News Article (2015-05-08)

'Magma P.I.' unearths clues to how crust was sculpted
About a decade ago, Johns Hopkins University geologist Bruce Marsh challenged the century-old concept that the Earth's outer layer formed when crystal-free molten rock called magma oozed to the surface from giant subterranean chambers hidden beneath volcanoes. View News Article (2007-12-04)

Can you rescue a rainforest? The answer may be yes
Half a century after most of Costa Rica's rainforests were cut down, researchers from the Boyce Thompson Institute took on a project that many thought was impossible - restoring a tropical rainforest ecosystem. View News Article (2008-03-28)

Agriculture's next revolution -- perennial grain -- within sight
Earth-friendly perennial grain crops, which grow with less fertilizer, herbicide, fuel, and erosion than grains planted annually, could be available in two decades, according to researchers writing in the current issue of the journal Science.  View News Article (2010-06-25)

Coastal bluffs provide more sand to California beaches than previously believed
Coastal geologists have assumed for years that sediment-laden rivers that enter the Pacific Ocean along the Central and Southern California coast supply up to 90 percent of the sand on the region's beaches. View News Article (2005-10-13)

Ancient coral reef tells the history of Kenya's soil erosion
Coral reefs, like tree rings, are natural archives of climate change. But oceanic corals also provide a faithful account of how people make use of land through history, says Robert B. Dunbar of Stanford University. View News Article (2007-04-11)

River networks on Titan point to a puzzling geologic history
For many years, Titan's thick, methane- and nitrogen-rich atmosphere kept astronomers from seeing what lies beneath. Saturn's largest moon appeared through telescopes as a hazy orange orb, in contrast to other heavily cratered moons in the solar system.  View News Article (2012-07-23)
