Earth Sciences

Earth Sciences (also referred to as Geosciences), which deals with basic issues surrounding our planet, plays a vital role in the area of energy and raw materials supply.

Earth Sciences comprises subjects such as geology, geography, geological informatics, paleontology, mineralogy, petrography, crystallography, geophysics, geodesy, glaciology, cartography, photogrammetry, meteorology and seismology, early-warning systems, earthquake research and polar research.

The plate boundary between Africa and the Iberian Peninsula

… could cause large tsunamis. Due to a lack of data, the studies available so far underestimated the seismic and tsunami risk of these large faults. A new study led…

A quadruple increase in CO2 over East Asia

… causes changes in both fast and slow cloud responses. Extreme climate warming has shown to change how cloud cover behaves throughout East Asia (EA). Recent research suggests that in…

Collision eleven million kilometres away

NASA’s DART space probe, launched last year, will test whether the course of an asteroid can be changed at a distance of eleven million kilometres from Earth on 27 September…

Deepest scientific ocean drilling sheds light on Japan’s next great earthquake

Scientists who drilled deeper into an undersea earthquake fault than ever before have found that the tectonic stress in Japan’s Nankai subduction zone is less than expected, according to a…

For the first time we can measure the thickness of Arctic sea ice all year round

Using satellites, we are now able to measure the ice thickness – also in the summer. This is of great importance for the shipping in Arctic and future weather and…

Artificial ocean cooling to weaken hurricanes is futile

Researchers suggest ocean cooling is an effectively impossible solution to mitigate disasters. A new study found that even if we did have the infinite power to artificially cool enough of…
