It's raining on the Greenland ice -- in the winter

Earth Institute at Columbia University

Rainy weather is becoming increasingly common over parts of the Greenland ice sheet, triggering sudden melting events that are eating at the ice and priming the surface for more widespread future melting, says a new study. Some parts of the ice sheet are even receiving rain in winter--a phenomenon that will spread as climate continues to warm, say the researchers. The study appears this week in the European scientific journal The Cryosphere.

Stressing and straining: Geochemists answer fundamental question of mineral reactions

Argonne National Laboratory

In a new study from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory, scientists placed small iron oxide particles in an acidic solution, causing a reaction at the surface as iron atoms oxidized. As the reaction progressed, the researchers observed strain that built up and penetrated inside the mineral particle.

Researchers Find Potential New Source of Rare Earth Elements

Rutgers University-New Brunswick

Researchers have found a possible new source of rare earth elements – phosphate rock waste – and an environmentally friendly way to get them out, according to a study published in The Journal of Chemical Thermodynamics. The approach could benefit clean energy technology, according to researchers at Rutgers University–New Brunswick and other members of the Critical Materials Institute, a U.S. Department of Energy effort aimed at bolstering U.S. supply chains for materials important to clean energy.
