Researchers discovered hundreds of large bursts of methane from oil and gas production activities across the globe. The bursts account for 10% of global oil and gas methane emissions and are missing from most greenhouse gas emissions inventories.
By combining tree-ring data with U.S. Forest Service data, UArizona researchers have captured a more complete picture of what will drive future tree growth amid climate change. They predict individual tree growth will decline by as much as 91%.
Irina Panyushkina grew up in Siberia, hearing stories of explorers trudging through seas of ice to reach the North Pole. She is now a climate scientist trying to understand how a warming world is transforming the place she called home.
Most scientists researching California's extreme weather have focused their investigations on the last decade. But new UArizona research finds that an increasing trend in extreme weather began half a century ago.
Doctoral student Kira Hart Shanks designed and built the infrared channeled spectropolarimeter, which will be deployed onboard a NASA CubeSat to monitor invisible clouds in the upper atmosphere.
When the pandemic sent many students home from class, UArizona researchers developed an at-home lesson plan to teach high schoolers about bioinformatics and SARS-CoV-2.
Surprisingly little is known about how rain moves through landscapes once it's on the ground. A $3.5 million grant will allow scientists to study the role of plants and microbes in the process.
Using data from NASA's OSIRIS-REx mission, a UArizona-led team of scientists concluded that asteroids with highly porous rocks, such as Bennu, should lack fine-grain material on their surfaces.
Funded by the NSF Convergence Accelerator Program, the Quantum Sensors project aims to make space and terrestrial navigation far more sensitive, accurate and affordable.
New research suggests that the volume of salty water 2 to 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) beneath the Earth's surface is double previous estimates. The water could store waste fluids, sequester carbon and direct our search for extraterrestrial life.
