NASA study shows Loss of Water in Sierras caused Mountain Range to grow taller

 

Written by Carol Rasmussen
NASA’s Earth Science News Team

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – Loss of water from the rocks of California’s Sierra Nevada caused the mountain range to rise nearly an inch (24 millimeters) in height during the drought years from October 2011 to October 2015, a new NASA study finds.

In the two following years of more abundant snow and rainfall, the mountains have regained about half as much water in the rock as they had lost in the preceding drought and have fallen about half an inch (12 millimeters) in height.

“This suggests that the solid Earth has a greater capacity to store water than previously thought,” said research scientist Donald Argus of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, who led the study.

The Sierra Nevada range rose almost an inch during California's recent drought due to loss of water from within fractured rocks. (trailkrum, CC-BY-2.0)

Dodging the Roadkill: Longer Days

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’ve just come out of the Christmas holiday with much optimism.  I enjoyed great time with family and friends, and I’m expecting a new grandson most any day now. 

But what I’m most excited about is that we’ve just had the Winter Solstice which means, the days are getting longer.  For bikers, there isn’t anything more exciting than having more daylight to ride.

That doesn’t mean that the winter temperatures will cooperate, but hey, we’ve got gear for that.

I always feel rejuvenated after the holidays.  It’s a great time to “refresh” our own personal “browsers” and make plans for the coming days and weeks.
