Leading researchers design formal wear with a scientific edge

We continued our GPS surveys of monuments to measure land subsidence. While the work general went very well, we faced challenges from obscured or tilted monuments. We also struggled with large traffic delays, particularly at unpredictable ferry crossings.

Getting to remote sites started to prove challenging, and involved many forms of transportation by land and water.

A new study uncovers a previously undocumented relationship between erosion and wind speed.

Warming temperatures create two major drying trends, jeopardizing corn and soybean crops.

Tropical fossils found in a Greenland ice core hint at volcanic eruptions that threw the world into darkness from 536 to 537 A.D.

Using old tree rings and archival documents, historians and climate scientists have detailed an extreme cold period in Scotland in the 1690s that caused immense suffering. It may have lessons for Brexit-era politics.

The project earned grad student Anna Barth a grand prize in the American Geophysical Union’s competition on Data Visualization and Storytelling.

A variety of undergraduate research assistant positions are available. Apply by January 29, 2020.
