US National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency has launched MagQuest, an innovation challenge to advance how we measure Earth's magnetic field. The challenge is seeking solutions for geomagnetic data collection for the World Magnetic Model. Enter by 16th May.


New research identifies the role of the Indian Summer Monsoon on global climate change
A study led by researchers at The Open University (OU) with contributions from the British Geological Survey (BGS) has revealed new insights to help understand the historical importance of the Indian Summer Monsoon. Newly generated records of the Indian Summer Monsoon in put into context with published climate data, identified how the monsoon helped propagate warmth and moisture between the southern hemisphere with the northern hemisphere and thereby promoted global deglaciation.
