Insights into sediment flow processes can help to better understand the feasibility of turbidite as an earthquake indicator in a specific subaqueous environment

We investigated homogeneous muds, turbidites, and debris that were preserved in a 457-m deep ICDP drilling (220-0 ka) from the Dead Sea depocenter. Based on previous flash flood measuring, surface plume monitoring, and sediment traps monitoring in the lake center, we link homogeneous muds in the deep core to overflows, and link turbidites and debris … Read more

River belt discovery helps scientists understand ancient rivers — ScienceDaily

Long after a river has dried up, its channel belt lives on. Made up of swaths of sediment surrounding the river, channel belts, once hardened into rock, preserve the paths of rivers that once were. However, reconstructing details about an ancient river from channel belt deposits is a notoriously difficult task. New research from scientists … Read more

To harness the North Sea winds, we must understand its complicated seabed geology

For any country blessed with easy access to the shallow and windy North Sea, offshore wind will be key to meeting net zero targets. Developing these wind farms is partly a challenge for engineers, but it also depends on the geology beneath the seabed – and that’s where geoscientists like us come in. As the … Read more

Science Still Doesn’t Understand How Our Sex Affects Our Health

Heart disease kills more people of all sexes than anything else. But for more women than men, a heart attack may start with nausea, shortness of breath or extreme fatigue rather than chest pain. These symptoms are still often thought of as “atypical,” which means many women do not get the treatment they need in … Read more

Can science help us understand populism, from ‘malignant manicheism’ to Marine Le Pen?

Recent election results in Europe have been interpreted as a reversal for populism. Researchers are trying to gain a fuller understanding of what populism is and how it spreads. This raises the prospect of potentially limiting the damage it can cause. After a pair of populist candidates were defeated in European elections last Sunday, some … Read more
