Richard Alley, Evan Pugh University Professor of Geosciences, will discuss how human-caused global warming is affecting ice sheets and impacting coastal communities at the next EarthTalks seminar at 4 p.m. Monday, Feb. 24, in 112 Walker Building.
Current carbon cycle models may underestimate the amount of carbon dioxide released from the soil during rainy seasons in temperate forests like those found in the northeast United States, according to Penn State researchers.
A new podcast that highlights the work of Penn State researchers and how their findings impact communities near and far is now available through central Pennsylvania's public media station.
The mudslides that follow wildfires in Southern California can be deadly and difficult to predict. New research can help officials identify areas prone to these mudslides and respond before disaster occurs, according to scientists.
Chris House, professor of geosciences at Penn State, will share several origin of life and space science research discoveries and their societal impacts at the next EarthTalks seminar at 4 p.m. Monday, Feb. 10, in 112 Walker Building at University Park.
Penn State's Ecology Institute has announced three planning meetings, which look to collectively identify objectives and prioritize activities that the institute can pursue moving forward.
Iron micrometeorites found in ancient soils suggest carbon dioxide made up 25 to 50 percent of Earth's atmosphere 2.7 billion years ago, and that pressure at sea level may have been lower than today, Penn State researchers said.
Jim Kasting, Evan Pugh University Professor of Geosciences at Penn State, will discuss the science and societal impacts of human-caused global warming and solutions to curb carbon dioxide emissions, at the EarthTalks seminar at 4 p.m. Monday, Feb. 3, in 112 Walker Building.
The spring 2020 EarthTalks series, "Societal Problems, EESI Science towards Solutions," features scientists from Penn State's Earth and Environmental Systems Institute (EESI) and explores the human impacts on the global environment and how to apply this knowledge to decision-making.
Geosciences field camp is a rite of passage for Penn State geosciences students. This past summer, 36 students made the trek out West to investigate the geology of the intermontane western United States.
