Washington, Feb 19 (ANI): A new research has revealed that a complex network of isolated hills, ridges and small basins spanning 1400 km on Mars may be hiding large quantities of water-ice. Phlegra Montes stretches from the Elysium volcanic region at about 30 degree N and deep into the northern lowlands at about 50 degree N, and is a product of ancient tectonic forces. ESA's Mars Express imaged the portion of Phlegra Montes seen on 8 October 2014. It captures the southernmost tip of the range centred on 31degreeN / 160 degree E. Based on radar data from NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter combined with studies of the region's geology from other orbiters, scientists believe that extensive glaciers covered this region several hundred million years ago.

The study found that submarine volcanoes flare up on strikingly regular cycles, ranging from two weeks to 100,000 years and that they erupt almost exclusively during the first six months of each year, Xinhua reported. Previously, scientists presumed underwater volcanoes are Earth's gentle giants, oozing lava at slow, steady rates, but the new study said they produce maybe eight times more lava annually than land volcanoes. Due to the chemistry of their magmas, the carbon dioxide they emit is currently at about 88 million tonnes a year, the same as, or perhaps a little less than, from land volcanoes, said study author Maya Tolstoy of Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in the US. If underwater volcanoes were a little bit more active, their carbon dioxide output would shoot …
Washington, Feb. 6 (ANI): A new study has recently revealed that seafloor volcano pulses may alter climate. Vast ranges of volcanoes hidden under the oceans are presumed by scientists to be the gentle giants of the planet, oozing lava at slow, steady rates along mid-ocean ridges. The pulses, apparently tied to short- and long-term changes in earth's orbit, and to sea levels, might help trigger natural climate swings. The findings suggested that models of earth's natural climate dynamics, and by extension human-influenced climate change, may have to be adjusted.
Washington, Jan 28(ANI): Researchers studied the surface composition of mountain-sized asteroid 2004 BL86 that flew past earth recently. Remotely operating the NASA Infrared Telescope Facility (NASA IRTF) on Mauna Kea, Hawai'i, Planetary Science Institute researchers Vishnu Reddy and Driss Takir studied infrared sunlight reflected off the asteroid to determine its composition. Reddy said that their observations showed that this asteroid has a spectrum similar to V-type asteroids that are basalt, similar in composition to lava flows seen in Hawai'i. The principal source of V-type asteroids was thought to be ancient basin-forming impacts on the south pole of the large, main-belt asteroid (4) Vesta, the first target of NASA Dawn mission, and these impacts gave rise to the Vesta asteroid family …

The study, titled "State of Connectivity: 2014 - A Report on Global Internet Access" and published Wednesday, examines the current state of global internet connectivity and looks at who is connected, who is not and why. The study put the number of internet users in early 2015 at three billion people, although that still means that 60 percent of the global population has never connected to the web from a computer or mobile device. The study also found that the rate of growth in internet adoption slowed in 2014 for the fourth year in a row and has fallen from a growth rate of 14.7 percent in 2010 to just 6.6 percent last year. Because the rate of internet adoption is slowing, the number of people online will not reach four billion until 2019, according to the study.
