Signs in groundwater may help predict earthquakes 6 months in advance
Scientists searching for a way to predict earthquakes have uncovered the most promising lead yet, after uncovering tell-tale chemical spikes in groundwater up to six months before tremors struck.
Major earthquakes can kill hundreds of thousands of people, as in Haiti in 2010, but they are the only natural disaster that cannot currently be forecast. Some experts think a useful prediction of time, place and magnitude may be an impossible dream.

Pre-AGU 2014 CIDER Workshop
This one-day workshop serves as a kick-off for the CIDER 2015 summer program and as a retrospective on the CIDER 2014 summer program. It will be held Dec. 14, just before AGU in Berkeley, California. The workshop is open to all, and we particularly encourage those that have not experienced CIDER but would like to find out more about it. The registration deadline is Nov. 12.
Effect of ocean acidification: Coral growth rate on Great Barrier Reef plummets in 30-year comparison
Carnegie Institution via ScienceDaily
Researchers working in Australia's Great Barrier Reef have documented that coral growth rates have plummeted 40 percent since the mid-1970s. The scientists suggest that ocean acidification may be playing an important role in this perilous slowdown.
Earth's water is older than the sun: Likely originated as ices that formed in interstellar space
Carnegie Institution via ScienceDaily
Water was crucial to the rise of life on Earth and is also important to evaluating the possibility of life on other planets. Identifying the original source of Earth's water is key to understanding how life-fostering environments come into being and how likely they are to be found elsewhere. New work found that much of our solar system's water likely originated as ices that formed in interstellar space.
