2:58 PM | Corals Engineer Their Own Currents
There are few more monastic lives in the animal kingdom than a coral’s. In adulthood it gives up swimming to settle on the ocean floor, surround its spineless body with clones, and become a rock. Mouth facing the ocean, it waits passively for whatever drifts by—or maybe not so passively. Taking a closer look at […]The post Corals Engineer Their Own Currents appeared first on Inkfish.

1:32 PM | When human activity can ‘trigger’ earthquakes
Many centuries ago, human activity was believed to result in earthquakes – If we did not sufficiently appease the gods, mighty Tepeyollotl, heart of the mountains, would vent his calamitous rage with a terrifying, tumultuous upheaval of the earth itself. Nowadays most of us know better (although that still doesn’t stop some religious nuts from…

1:42 PM | These Cave Rocks Are Made out of Bacteria
Stalactites hold tight to the ceiling, the saying goes, and stalagmites might grow high enough to reach it. But the simple mnemonic doesn’t come close to covering the variety of weird, rocky shapes growing all over a cave. There are even, it turns out, rocks made from bacteria. They’re not putting the “tight” in “stalactite” so […]The post These Cave Rocks Are Made out of Bacteria appeared first on Inkfish.

9:40 PM | Does the motion of the solar system affect our climate?
The Earth’s climate is believed to be affected, not just by people driving Humvees, but by a series of complex cycles, which can occur over a few years (such as El Nino) or even tens of thousands of years (changes in the Earth’s axis of rotation). But another cycle which may have an effect, lasts…
