New Study Solves Mystery of Salt Buildup on Bottom of Dead Sea

AGU Dead Sea Study

Researchers walk along the bank of the Dead Sea, one of Earth’s saltiestbodies of water. It is nearly ten times saltier than the ocean.Credit: Nadav Lensky/Geological Survey of Israel. New research explains why salt crystals are piling up on the deepest parts of the Dead Sea’s floor, a finding that could help scientists understand how large salt deposits formed in

Computer Simulation Counters Flooding on Coral Reef Coasts

Scientists have developed a computer simulation tool to predict short-term flood hazards on coral-reef-lined coasts and to assess longer-term impacts from climate change. The assessments will provide input that helps estimate societal or economic risk and damage from such flooding. The tool can be used to play “what-if” games and ask questions such as, “how will flood risk change if
