Inside Stanford Earth
Sally Benson of Stanford Earth comments on the state of energy technology and why greater urgency is needed around issues related to climate and cleaner energy.
Until now, comparisons of emissions from different sources of crude have failed to cover much of the world’s production. A new paper led by Stanford Earth researchers fixes those problems.
A detailed analysis by researchers including Stanford Earth's Mohammad Masnadi and Adam Brandt finds Saudi Arabia's oil production has the lowest carbon emissions per barrel among major petro-players.
“The strongly warming climate means that extremely warm waters will become more and more common, especially in El Niños,” explains Chris Field of Stanford Earth.
A study co-authored by Roz Naylor in the journal Science shows pest populations will cause significant losses to staple crops in a warming climate.
The struggle between farmers and insects is one of the most important themes in the history of agriculture says Stanford Earth's Chris Field, commenting on research co-authored by Roz Naylor.
A study co-authored by Stanford's Roz Naylor suggests climate change will make insect pests hungrier, which could encourage farmers to use more pesticides.
Research co-authored by Stanford Earth's Roz Naylor finds a warming planet will see larger swarms of hungrier insects chomp through millions more tons of crops globally by 2050.
Chris Field, a professor of Earth System Science and director of the Woods Institute for the Environment, writes about the potential for California's tropical forests to slow climate change.
Fires are raging from British Columbia to California, and the Administration's climate policies will make things worse, writes Stanford Earth's Rob Jackson.
Geophysics professor Gregory Beroza comments on new research aimed at using artificial intelligence to predict where aftershocks will strike.
Stanford Earth's Adam Brandt describes challenges preventing local grids from supplying 100 percent renewables to facilities like Facebook's data centers.
Katharine Mach, a senior research scientist in Earth System Science, discusses working at the interface of science and policy.
Could heavy rainfall from Hurricane Lane put Hawaii's Kilauea volcano out for good? Probably not, explains Stanford Earth's Eric Dunham.
Stanford’s Noah Diffenbaugh explains how the same kinds of extremes that we see on land can also happen in the ocean.
A new paper co-authored by Stanford's Marshall Burke suggests pumping sulfur dioxide into the air is unlikely to stave off crop damage from global warming.
