Geologists map rocks to soak CO2 from air

... most such rocks are found in and around coastal mountain ranges, with the greatest concentrations in California, Oregon and Washington, and along the appalachians from New England to Alabama. Some also occur in the interior, including Montana. Worldwide, other formations are scattered across Eurasia and Australi...

Study finds hemlock trees dying rapidly, affecting forest carbon cycle

...oolly adelgid is killing hemlock trees faster than expected in the southern appalachians and rapidly altering the carbon cycle of these forests. SRS researchers and... authors suggest that infrequent frigid winter temperatures in the southern appalachians may not be enough to suppress adelgid populations. The authors believe this...

...ystems that formed during the closure of the Rheic Ocean. Nance and Linnemann, based on careful correlation of structures and strata from the American appalachians and the European Variscan mountain systems, have been able to reconstruct the tectonic life and death of the Rheic Ocean, and hence have provided us w...

Study: Typhoons bury tons of carbon in the oceans

... pulls carbon from the atmosphere, the planet cools. For instance, other Ohio State geologists recently determined that the rise and weathering of the appalachians preceded an ice age 450 million years ago.

The fact that we can replicate key aspects of the spatial patterns of fish biodiversity from the appalachians to the Rockies testifies to the robustness of this approach, said Fagan. One upshot from this work, still to be vetted in other systems, is the idea...
