Study reveals East Antarctic ice’s vulnerability to ocean heat

Study reveals East Antarctic ice’s vulnerability to ocean heat

Harsh winds and chilly ocean currents have cut off East Antarctica from the rest of the world, and its massive stores of ice have mostly remained intact. But, researchers have discovered major melting that could foretell a less stable future for the region.

Researchers analyze diamond chunks to better understand deep Earth

Researchers analyze diamond chunks to better understand deep Earth

In a bid to better understand the extreme depths of Earth, a diamond geologist and colleagues at the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) cracked open and analyzed tiny chunks and scraps leftover from some of the world’s biggest diamonds.

The researchers led by diamond geologist Evan Smith got the GIA to acquire eight fingernail-sized chunks of those big, expensive diamonds. The chunks were leftover from big diamonds when the rough diamonds were cut into glistening jewels.
