The amount of carbon stored in marine sediments within national exclusive economic zones (EEZs) – areas of coastal water and seabed within a certain distance of a country’s coastline -, can be equal to or larger than carbon stored on land, new research by Silvania Avelar, Tessa van Voort and Timothy Eglinton published in Carbon Balance and Management shows.

A review recently published in Crime Science suggests that animal poaching and the illicit wildlife trade concentrate in a similar manner to more traditional crime categories. Further, authors propose that the field of conservation biology would be well-served by borrowing prevention strategies, approaches to modelling and interventions commonly utilised in crime science.
Importance of rheological heterogeneity for interpreting viscoelastic relaxation at a subduction earthquake
Guest post by Hisashi Suito Postseismic deformation is commonly observed following large earthquake. This postseismic deformation is thought to be caused by three mechanisms: afterslip, viscoelastic relaxation, and poroelastic rebound. Short-term deformation near the rupture zone is considered to be caused mainly by the afterslip or, at times, poroelastic rebound. It is commonly interpreted that… Read more »
