Mill Creek is part of the Russian River watershed, which drains 3,900 square kilometers of Sonoma and Mendocino counties.A century ago, roughly 20,000 coho—a salmon species known for spawning in even the smallest creeks—would return to the Russian River and its tributaries in a typical year.
In a small pilot plant in the Finnish city of Kotka, the founders of SuperGround have figured out how to process chicken bones so they can be incorporated into ground chicken products like nuggets or meatballs.
“If you don’t have water, you’re not going to get very far.” Making sense of that subglacial hydrology is especially important for researchers racing to model particularly precarious regions of ice, like the Thwaites Glacier, a few hundred miles away from Whillans.
Using off-the-shelf accelerometers, researchers have been quantifying how trees sway differently over time: when they’re warmer or colder, hydrated or dehydrated, weighed down by snow or unburdened.But with accelerometers, scientists have a new way of measuring how much rain or snow a particular tree in a forest ends up intercepting.
In spring, male sage grouse gather on leks to attract females.Most species of bustard lek, and birders familiar with sage grouse and prairie chicken will find their displays familiar: strutting and stamping, and a lot of inflated air sacs.
So, next time you are out enjoying the forest and you come across strips of bark at the base of a tree and obvious teeth marks on the tree trunk, keep an eye out: a bear could be nearby.
The scientists noticed that when the pusher fluid, which contains long-chain polymers, was pumped into the ground above a certain rate, it seemed to unexpectedly become much more viscous, or sticky, an effect later found in many similar systems.
Behind her, she dragged a sled loaded with a ground-penetrating radar, which fired pulses through a thousand feet of ice and analyzed the radio waves that bounced off the seawater below, thus building a detailed image of the glacier beneath her feet.Erin Pettit leaves camp with a ground-penetrating radar in tow.
On a foggy day in March, a prototype of SpaceX’s giant silver rocket known as Starship, dubbed Serial Number 11 or SN11, was supposed to reorient itself vertically while landing and deftly touch down on a pad at the company’s launch site near Boca Chica, Texas, a couple miles from the Mexico border.
What I noticed were turkey vultures – one of three vulture species in the U.S. and one of only seven in the western hemisphere – making their way from breeding grounds near the Canadian border to their wintering area as far south as Central or South America.
They could use them to better understand the aftermath of quakes and tsunamis in this highly populated yet risky zone, and to validate the flooding models that policymakers use to prepare for future disasters.
But climate change is assisting the woolly adelgid in its quest for total domination of the Northeast’s hemlocks, by helping it spread north into colder climes.
I'll have a steak as a special treat, but Elisabeth went off beef for environmental reasons a couple of years ago.While the beans cooked in the pressure cooker, the Impossible Burger browned on the stove.
Well, the best way to see those chipmunks is to visit the varied national parks of the western United States.As mentioned, visiting the great national parks of the western United States will give you opportunities to see most of the chipmunk species.
In the southern states, this ground temperature isn't very likely to get below freezing—so water in the pipes will also be above freezing (and stay liquid).But there are some exceptions.
But before putting any taxpayer money on this train, consider some inconvenient truths: First, the carbon farming practices being promoted as something new have all been in use for decades, and all were originally adopted for reasons unrelated to climate change.
At the risk of imposing more coherence than there really was, the main line of attack on Section 230 from Senate Republicans today was that Twitter and Facebook are no longer mere neutral platforms, but rather act as publishers, making editorial decisions about what content to allow and when to add their own content.
But exactly who makes the suit and what they might think about its use for Asian giant hornet wrangling is something of a mystery.But when it hit max signal, he didn’t see a nest on the ground, which is where Asian giant hornets usually build them.
When an app first asks for permission to track location, the option to enable this all the time (even when the app isn't running) isn't available: You need to visit the app's specific page in Android Settings to do this.
Thousands of migrating birds have inexplicably died in the southwestern US, in what ornithologists have described as a national tragedy that is likely related to the climate crisis.
Before every scout camp, the older kids would serve up questionable nature facts meant to show their expertise and perhaps instill a bit of fear.I could only roll my eyes when, prepping for a group stay at a cabin, I heard stories regarding porcupines that visited outhouses at night.
“We see it effectively moving around the globe as a seismic lockdown wave,” says Royal Holloway University of London seismologist Paula Koelemeijer, one of the paper’s coauthors.“Earthquakes are often really lower frequencies than the seismic signals from human activities,” says Koelemeijer.
