“I think it's just absolutely remarkable that there are places on the seafloor where changes of this scale are happening at this rate,” says Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute marine geologist Charlie Paull, a coauthor on the paper.
For the past few years, Dietl has collaborated with Florida’s Department of Environmental Protection to collect tens of thousands of oyster fossils from reefs like this one.
A recent study addresses this question by using tree rings to reconstruct hundreds of years of seasonal cyclone precipitation levels.“Often, tree-ring reconstructions show us that the extreme climate we have recorded with instruments (weather stations) over the last 120 years was surpassed back in time,” Maxwell told Ars Technica.
Gerke’s recent study suggests that rat snakes may be useful bioindicators of radioactive contamination in nuclear disaster zones.
Police around the country have drastically increased their use of geofence warrants , a widely criticized investigative technique that collects data from any user's device that was in a specified area within a certain time range, according to new figures shared by Google.
“It's a really pretty and kind of understated shrub,” says Bryant Baker, conservation director of the Los Padres ForestWatch, which advocates for the protection of California’s habitats.
If games are big iterations of cause and effect, then elemental reactions give very clear and logical feedback to players about exactly what their footprint on the world is.
Because winds blow in various directions at each altitude, the AI-based controller was programmed to use reinforcement learning, or RL, to search a database of historic records and current weather reports to predict the best elevation to keep the balloon in one place.
So what would happen if the global temperature increased enough to melt the ice cap in Antarctica?However, in this case, I really don't have a feeling for the size of the Antarctic ice cap.

However, NIWA fisheries scientist Dr Mark Morrison says no research was undertaken at the time of the closure of Separation Point to determine if the fish nurseries were present, nor has there been any since.
NIWA scientists are heading to the waters around Whakaari/White Island in the Bay of Plenty next week to survey changes to the seafloor.No-one has collected water column imaging close to Whakaari so this is an incredible opportunity to discover new areas of volcanic activity.”.
Some cities may have restricted driving, while others didn’t—researchers can look at both traffic and animal data to see how species in different areas adapted.
As Bristol Bay fishermen gear up for this year’s salmon season—one beset by fears that Covid-19 could overwhelm this remote region as thousands of seasonal workers from across the world descend on fishing communities with scant medical resources—they must also contend with a slower-moving hazard: the warming temperatures that threaten a $1.5 billion industry and the people it supports.
People who have studied or practiced remote work say leaders like Zuckerberg and their executives will have to tear themselves from their Bay Area roots—in some cases physically—if they are to avoid making their new legions of remote workers second-class employees.
Scientists still have much to learn about Covid-19, but, says Jessica McCarty, a geographer and fire scientist at Miami University, “We know that there's linkages between people who live in highly-polluted areas and their likelihood of getting any type of respiratory illness, as well as viral infections.” Smog from cars, for instance, remains a major threat to human health.
