When salmon spawn, the earth moves -- not immediately, but over the course of hundreds of thousands or millions of years.
Indiana University Bloomington geoscience researcher Brian Yanites has been awarded a three-year, $317,663 grant from the National Science Foundation to study how tectonic and climate processes interact to shape the landscape of southern Taiwan.
The location of copper deposits would seem to have little to tell us about the role of climate on mountain erosion.
The processes that build and shape mountain landscapes expose important mineral resources.
Climate has a strong impact on copper resources, according to a new research by the University of Idaho and the University of Michigan.
Climate helps drive the erosion process that exposes economically valuable copper deposits and shapes the pattern of their global distribution, according to a new study from researchers at the University of Idaho and the University of Michigan.
About 75 percent of the world’s copper comes from porphyry copper deposits. A new study from the University of Idaho and the University of Michigan unearths how these economically valuable deposits are distributed around the world.
UI professor’s research reveals new patterns in how economically important copper deposits are distributed across the Earth
River erosion is a powerful shaper of topography, cutting through bedrock and over time converting smooth terrain to rolling hills or jagged cliffs.
As rivers cut a path through bedrock, what influences the relationship between channel width, slope, and erosion rate?
Earthquakes and bedrock river incision are fundamental processes in the evolution of tec-tonically active landscapes, yet little work has focused on understanding how a bedrock river responds to a single large earthquake.
