A new technology discussed at the American Geophysical Union's annual conference could help us spy on smaller planets like the Earth-sized Proxima Centauri b. The post Deformable Mirrors Could Help Astronomers See Exoplanets Directly appeared first on ExtremeTech.
A new tool could help local authorities in Costa Rica prepare for periods of drought during the dry season based on rainfall during the wet season, scientists reported last month at the 2017 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in New Orleans.
Anthony Freeman is from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, and he just presented a very interesting mission concept at the 2017 American Geophysical Union conference. Namely, launching a spacecraft to the relatively nearby three-star Alpha Centauri system to search an exoplanet for signs of life. But not until 2069. More »
(American Geophysical Union) Algae growth reduces reflectivity, enhances Greenland ice sheet melting.
Results from the Juno gravity science experiment presented at last week's American Geophysical Union meeting suggest Jupiter's winds penetrate only to 3000 kilometers deep.
If you were to claim that Water Resources Research (published by the American Geophysical Union) is the world's foremost hydrologic/water resources journal you would get little or no arguments - certainly not from me. Two years ago the AGU published a 50th anniversary issue of WRR that chronicled 50 years...
At the American Geophysical Union meeting, members of the Juno team showed observations of active volcanism on Jupiter's moon Io.
(American Geophysical Union) New research shows human-induced climate change increased the amount and intensity of Hurricane Harvey's unprecedented rainfall. The new findings are being published in two separate studies and being presented...Show More Summary
(American Geophysical Union) Accumulating sediment within the lower Mississippi River could, when coupled with a major flood, cause the river to abandon its current course, potentially ruining the drinking water source for roughly 1.5 million people, according to new research presented here today.
(Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute) At the Fall 2017 meeting of the American Geophysical Union, scientists from around the world will present 19 talks and posters about the Coordinated Canyon Experiment -- the most extensive, long-term effort to monitor turbidity currents ever attempted.

(American Geophysical Union) Researchers have identified an explosive new mechanism that breaks down meteors as they hurtle toward Earth. New simulations of falling meteors suggest air particles penetrate the space rocks' porous interiors as they careen through the atmosphere. Show More Summary
(American Geophysical Union) Around the holidays, a sprig of mistletoe over a doorway is festive and romantic. But mistletoe has a sinister side: The parasitic plant can sometimes kill the very tree it depends on for food by robbing its host of water during dry spells, according to new research being presented here.
(American Geophysical Union) Research bolsters possibility of plate tectonics on Europa.
(American Geophysical Union) This week from AGU: Scientists counter threat of flooding on coral reef coasts, and more.
(American Geophysical Union) The American Geophysical Union (AGU) today announced the three winners of its Open API Challenge, including first place winners Bennett Battaile and Meenakshi Rao for their "AGU Explorer" app. AGU's OpenShow More Summary
