Mapping river geometry gives clues to past terrains
Nature
VideoBriefEarth's terrain is ever changing thanks to erosion, but now a technique enables scientists to reconstruct some past landscapes and forecast those of the future. The key is in the geometry of how river boundaries shift over time, suggests the study, which uses a statistical method to assess and describe these changes. The method estimates whether the edges of a river system's watershed are stable or whether they are spreading to "cannibalize" neighboring river basins.

Mineral targeting made easy with database
Science Network
Finding ways to target mineral deposits in remote and deeply covered areas, such as in Western Australia's often thick regolith cover, has been a major motivating factor in collaborative research between Australian and U.S. scientists. Exploring the use of magnetite as a pathfinder mineral, the study involved the CSIRO Minerals Down Under Flagship, University of WA's Center for Exploration Targeting and the U.S. Geological Survey at Denver's Central Mineral and Environmental Resources Science Center.

Study: Oceans absorb and remove 15 percent of nitrogen oxide from air
University Herald
A recent University of California San Diego study has found that besides regulating temperatures and weather patterns, oceans help cleanse the air as well. Researchers said that the surface of the sea has the ability to eliminate about 15 percent of the smog-forming nitrogen oxides (accumulated in polluted air) along the coast overnight.

Geologists: Mount Vesuvius will erupt again
Guardian Libety Voice
Pompeii's Mount Vesuvius is very much an active volcano and will erupt again, according to many geologists and volcanologists studying the volcano. The mountain's last eruption was in 1944 and has erupted over three dozen times since the devastating explosion in 79 A.D.  In 1780 B.C. the volcano spewed millions of tons of superheated lava, ash and rocks over 20 miles high into the skies, known as an Avellino eruption.

Experts: Britain far from primed for shale gas exploration
Reuters
Britain may be a prime location for shale gas exploration in Europe, but a lack of onshore drilling infrastructure and local opposition will impede development, experts and geologists said at a shale conference in London. Britain is in the early stages of exploring for unconventional gas to counter growing dependence on imports and to emulate the success the United States has had in lowering its energy prices due to a shale boom.

Book details early mapping of Black Hills
Rapid City Journal
In the 1870s, U.S. Army soldiers from the East were sent out to the Wild West, bearing arms against the relatively unknown dangers of the territory. One soldier temporarily laid aside his service weapon, picked up a sketch pencil and watercolor brush, and made history. The expedition spent six months detailing the topography, geology and mineral deposits of this unknown section, traveling from Fort Laramie, Neb., to Belle Fourche to Sheridan, Wyo.
