According to a new study involving researchers at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), scientists observed that a human - induced magnitude 5.0 earthquake near Prague, Okla., in November 2011, may have triggered the larger M5.7 earthquake
DURHAM, NC, Jan. 2, 2014 -- Numerous studies have shown that increasing amounts of atmospheric human - induced carbon dioxide are permeating into the world's oceans and potentially causing acidification. Ocean acidification is a result
identify which areas at land surface are the most important to protect from contamination. An unexpected finding is that human - induced changes in recharge and groundwater flow caused by irrigation and high-volume pumping for public supply changed
flooding, and increasing the salinity of estuaries and freshwater aquifers. It is caused by a number of natural and human - induced factors and can vary by region. Some impacts of sea-level rise can already be observed along the
atmosphere, land surface and subsurface. This tool provides a quantitative basis for assessing how a natural or human - induced change in one part of the hydrologic cycle may affect other aspects of the cycle. The new USGS circular demonstrates
understanding of the Earth's response to natural or human - induced changes. Veneman said that such technology would also ..... as to mitigate and assess the effects of natural and human - induced disasters. The information we provide will allow our
Breaking research conducted by Tim Barnett and David Pierce of Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego, has shown preliminary evidence of human-produced warming in the upper 3,000 meters of the worlds oceans.
