“There is growing realization within the exoplanet community that Venus is the best analogue in the Solar System for many of the rocky exoplanets we have found,” says geological sciences professor Laura Schaefer.
Recent ocean modeling has suggested hydrothermal vents play a key role in how nutrients move through the ocean column. A study from Kevin Arrigo and Mathieu Ardyna confirms model predictions with real observations.
Research by Stanford Earth's Kevin Arrigo and Mathieu Ardyna suggests hydrothermal vents on the seafloor may have a larger impact on life near the water's surface and on the global carbon cycle than once thought.
A hundred years ago, some California droughts were “hot” or “cool." There’s been a dramatic shift in the past couple of decades, though, as demonstrated in research led by Stanford Earth's Noah Diffenbaugh.
Facebook has committed to reaching 100 percent renewables by 2020, and now it's investing in a solar project. But research from Sally Benson notes that doesn't necessarily equate to clean energy around the clock.
"If pollution were drops of blood, it's a lot easier to blot them from your fingertips than to clean them from a rug," says Stanford Earth's Rob Jackson in an interview about his research on converting methane to carbon dioxide.
