Report: Global mining exploration in crisis, but not hopeless
Mining Weekly
Global mineral exploration is in crisis, but mining companies can turn their exploration performance around. "Finding orebodies is not all about luck and success is not unpredictable. And while some companies struggle to replace depleted reserves, those that act in a countercyclical way — that build world-class exploration capabilities — will be rewarded with disproportionate returns," said The Boston Consulting Group partner Alexander Koch, coauthor of a new report by the management consulting firm, titled "Tackling the Crisis in Mineral Exploration."

Mapping project reveals ancient faults in changing seafloor
San Francisco Chronicle
The ocean floor along the California coast, mapped in greater detail than ever before, reveals signs of change and turmoil that land dwellers never see. Vast areas of underwater sand, many meters thick, lie piled up offshore from the Golden Gate, endlessly renewed by erosion far inland. Newfound traces of ancient seismic faults along the ocean bottom recall earthquakes that ruptured the seafloor thousands of years ago.

STEMFORCE: Building the next generation of geoscientists
Forbes
The ever-growing age gap within the oil and gas industry workforce is a phenomenon that companies are all too aware of. It is projected that within five to seven years, roughly 50 percent of the industry's workforce will be retired. STEMFORCE, funded in part by Drillinginfo and founded by the organization GeoFORCE Texas, is a new program that aims to encourage students to pursue careers in the geosciences by exposing high school students to geologic fieldwork.

Researcher discovers groundwater modeling breakthrough 84 years in the making
Phys.org
A University of Wyoming professor has made a discovery that answers a nearly 100-year-old question about water movement, with implications for agriculture, hydrology, climate science and other fields. The paper, titled "A new general 1-D vadose zone flow solution method," and published in the journal Water Resource Research this spring presents an equation to replace a difficult and unreliable formula that's stymied hydrologic modelers since 1931.

Dawn Journal: Ceres' intriguing geology
The Planetary Society
Dawn is continuing to unveil a Ceres of mysteries at the first dwarf planet discovered. The spacecraft has been extremely productive, returning a wealth of photographs and other scientific measurements to reveal the nature of this exotic alien world of rock and ice. First glimpsed more than 200 years ago as a dot of light among the stars, Ceres is the only dwarf planet between the sun and Neptune.

Warmer ocean temps may hurt Florida coral reefs
Sun Sentinel
South Florida's coral reefs face an increased risk of bleaching in the next few months, a life-threatening condition in which they expel the algae that provides them with color and nutrition, according to federal marine scientists. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced July 6 that unusually warm ocean temperatures are likely to produce increased coral bleaching through October in the northern hemisphere, "potentially leading to the death of corals over a wide area and affecting the long-term supply of fish and shellfish."

Geologists claim there are over 300 undiscovered meteorite impact craters on Earth
Outer Places
It is essentially common knowledge in this day and age that phenomena in space can play a significant role in shaping life on earth. Meteorites have perhaps played the most crucial role, as they have struck the Earth many times over the course of the planet's existence. Most notably, an enormous collision of a meteorite with Earth at the end of the Cretaceous period is thought to have caused the extinction of the dinosaurs. Now, geologists are attempting to calculate just how many meteorite impact sites are present on the surface of the earth that may yet be undiscovered.

After the dinosaurs died, earth experienced the age of fish
Smithsonian
Non-avian dinosaurs weren't the only victims of the mass extinction that marks the end of the Cretaceous period. Roughly three-quarters of plants and animals on Earth also succumbed to the catastrophic environmental effects of a massive impact by an asteroid or comet (scientists are pretty sure that was the trouble). But one group of animals appears to have triumphed in the aftermath: fish.

Vacuum test chamber prepares spectrometer for asteroid encounter
Assembly
In September 2016, as part of its OSIRIS-REx mission, NASA will send a spacecraft to extract a sample from one of these asteroids — called 101995 Bennu — and return it to Earth. Scientists at NASA believe studying the asteroid sample will increase knowledge of our solar system and the origin of life. Equally important, there's a high probability (1,800-to-1) of Bennu hitting the Earth late in the 22nd century. Studying the asteroid's physical and chemical makeup will help future scientists develop an impact-mitigation strategy.

The geologic features of Berryessa-Snow Mountain
Daily Democrat
The proposed Berryessa-Snow Mountain National Monument region provides unparalleled access to geologic features associated with an ancient tectonic system where one plate descended beneath another. The Coast Range Fault represents the ancient boundary between the upper North American plate and the descending lower plate. Rocks of the upper plate include Great Valley sedimentary and volcanic rocks overlying serpentine — that is, remnants of ancient oceanic crust.
