Do faults get weaker as they get older?
In a new paper, I show that, on basalts, flowpaths, hydographs, and landscapes coevolve over a million years or more.
For large urban streams, decades of infrastructure development have often pinned the stream into a narrow corridor. There are ways that existing artificial structures can be put to work to mitigate some of the ecological impacts of urbanization.
While the deep, geothermal water of Yellowstone is sexy and merits both the tourist and scientific attention given to it, there’s a largely untold story in the shallow groundwater, where huge volumes of cold water may advect more heat than the hydrothermal features. A paper by Gardner et al. (2010) begins to shed light on this side of the story.
