Taking the Temperature of ancient Organisms

submitted by: UMiami_RSMAS

UM Rosenstiel School professor Peter Swart talks about the the Rosenstiel School's acquisition of two new stable isotope mass spectrometers that allow for Clumping, which is the process of directly measuring rare isotopes of carbon and oxygen. Clumping allows scientists to directly measure the temperatures of organisms, such as dinosaurs or those located in ancient seas.

PLoS Biology: Converging Currents in Climate-Relevant Conservation: Water, Infrastructure, and Institutions

submitted by: johoma
The conservation community has not fully accounted for the implications of climate change to our work, which has become integrated with economic development in recent decades. Many of the largest impacts on ecosystems and species come from infrastructure investments, especially water infrastructure. Given the sensitivity of the water cycle to climate change, there is a high risk of long-lived water infrastructure developing such severe mismatches with its ambient climate that the investment...

Fault zone architecture of the San Jacinto fault zone in Horse Canyon, southern California: implications for focused fluid flow during rupture at shallow crustal levels Nissa Morton M.S. Candidate Advisor Dr. Gary Girty ABSTRACT Stream cuts in Horse Canyon southwest of Anza, CA have exposed the fault core, adjacent damage zone, and wall rocks of the San Jacinto fault at an approximate depth of 0.4 km. Here the juxtaposition of tonalitic plutons provides a unique opportunity to assess...
