Footprints at White Sands National Park in New Mexico confirm human presence over at least two millennia, with the oldest tracks dating back 23,000 years.
Researchers used detailed observations of an enormous jet of glowing gas and dust to pinpoint the supermassive black hole at the center of galaxy Centaurus A.
The portable inflatable Ocean Space Habitat, co-invented by UArizona professor Winslow Burleson, allows occupants to essentially camp out underwater.
Runoff from melting snow is an essential water resource for many communities and ecosystems, but when snow melts too rapidly in a short time, it can be destructive. To better understand the processes that drive such melting, researchers mapped extreme snowmelt events over 30 years.
Researchers are building a future in which wearable devices will allow clinicians to gather patient data remotely and provide "care in place" to patients at home.
An ancient coronavirus outbreak in East Asia could help researchers identify viruses that have caused epidemics in the past and may do so in the future.
Synthetic chemicals known as PFAS not only pose a long-term threat to groundwater quality, but also a long-term challenge to scientists tasked with cleaning them up.
An unknown methane-producing process is likely at work in the hidden ocean beneath the icy shell of Saturn's moon Enceladus, suggests a new study co-authored by UArizona scientist Régis Ferrière.
For two more years, NASA's Near-Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer, or NEOWISE, will continue its hunt for asteroids and comets – including objects that could pose a hazard to Earth.
The three-story building will be dedicated specifically to research programs related to the "Grand Challenges" pillar of the university's strategic plan.
Monitoring Earth's radiation budget allows scientists to know if the Earth is trapping or losing heat, which is important for understanding climate change.
