Fall foliage season may be later, but longer on warmer Earth

Fall foliage season may be later, but longer on warmer Earth | Stoltz geo 160 | Scoop.it
The fall foliage season in some areas of the United States could come much later and possibly last a little longer by the end of the century as climate change causes summer temperatures to linger later into the year, according researchers. The delay could result in a longer growing season that would affect carbon uptake, agriculture, water supplies and animal behavior, among many other areas.
Lindsey Stoltz's insight:

Fall could be making a late appearance.

Seismic hazards reassessed in the Andes

Seismic hazards reassessed in the Andes | Stoltz geo 160 | Scoop.it
Although being able to predict the date on which the next big earthquake will occur is still some way off becoming a reality, it is now possible to identify the areas where they will occur. Researchers have just measured the current deformation in the northern part of the Andes for the first time using GPS, where the tectonics of the Pacific and South American plates govern the high seismic activity in the region. The scientists then identified the areas where the fault, located at the interface of these two plates, is capable of generating large earthquakes or not.
Lindsey Stoltz's insight:

Using a GPS network, we can now see where earthquakes will occur.
