This week’s digest looks at earthquakes, volcanoes, and the broader concept of whether we need plate tectonics for a habitable planet.
An earthquake in Indonesia, a lake on Mars, and old ice in the Antarctic – all are included in this week’s geoscience roundup.
This week looks at the sadly topical issue of wildfires, along with the ongoing eruption at Kilauea and a swarm of tiny earthquakes in Washington State.
There are some big names in volcanoes this week – Kilauea, Krakatau and Öraefajökull. And we take a quick look at the question: How cold can it get?
This week’s article looks at landslides in Japan, Iceland and Turkey, a dearth of earthquakes and the situation at Kilauea.
This week there are unintended consequences of the melting of Antarctic ice, plus updates on Kilauea and a look at seismic activity in Iceland.
If you can’t stand the heat ………
This week’s geoscience roundup looks at volcanism in the past (worldwide), the present (Kilauea) and, possibly, the future (New England).
Geoscience covers a range of events and the key to minimising deaths is risk management. This week looks at recent happenings in Kilauea, hazard management in Chile and what we can learn from Mexico’s defeat of Germany in the World Cup.
Temperature and sea level continue to rise, Antarctic ice is melting, and May, 2018 was the fourth warmest on record.
