Scientists confirmed that marine heatwaves do not only impact coral reefs. Click to read more. Marine heatwave is like terrestrial heatwave where both natural phenomena are driven by the greenhouse effect or the warming of the atmosphere.
In the intricate dance of our planet's carbon cycle and the protection of terrestrial vertebrate species, tropical forests take center stage. Restoring these forests holds the key to addressing climate change and biodiversity loss.
Apex predators, aside from humans, have shaped different ecosystems. Click to read more. Apex predators are living creatures that are on the top of their food chain, within a given terrestrial or marine natural habitat.
Iron-rich extraterrestrial blobs were embedded into the Earth billions of years ago and are now under modern-day Africa and the Pacific Ocean. Read more here.
Just when we thought that plastics have infiltrated every part of terrestrial Earth, they are now up in our skies. Unfortunately, plastic rain is the new acid rain, as microplastics have been found in our clouds. Researchers in Japan recently found several types of polymers and rubber in the cloud water surrounding Mount Fuji, Japan’s […]
Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) in semiconductor and in-space manufacturing collaborated on a white paper that outlines how microgravity benefits the production of semiconductors and related materials.
eBird calls the Snow Partridge a "stone-colored terrestrial bird of stony hillsides, mountain ridges, and meadows above treeline" - and in fact, it is impressive how well the bird fits in with its surroundings, at least when I saw it at about 4000 meters of altitude at the Balangshan pass. Presumably, the bird I saw
