Investing in Science to Improve Climate Risk Management - Eos
Integrating Earth science research and observations into adaptation planning helps identify effective strategies to manage climate risks.
It can be hard to talk about failure…but that’s a big part of science. So, @ThirdPod chatted w/ @sarahstranded, @planetaryquakes, @motherofclams, Ryan Fogt, & Sandra Schumacher about their #fieldworkfails ! https://t.co/ltVthHkAcN #fieldworkfail #SciComm #PHDlife
New paper from @geofluidslab asks: What happens when the #wastewater from oil and gas extraction is denser than water? How does it move through the Earth?

Sinking Wastewater Triggers Deeper, Stronger Earthquakes - Eos
The effects of pumping wastewater from oil and gas extractions may last a decade or more after the injections stop.
A new study finds warming winter weather is warming the middle water layer of the Black Sea.... This warming is causing the cold intermediate layer to mix with the other layers of water.
