Boron isotope helps to trace fluid processes in subduction zone

Subduction zone fluids are the key carrier for element migration and matter cycles between the crust and mantle of the Earth. Interpreting the sources, properties and signatures of fluids has significant implications for ...

The role of magma in the birth of the Atlantic Ocean

The Atlantic Ocean was born roughly 200 million years ago when the supercontinent Pangea began to break apart. As continental crust stretched and fractured, oceanic crust took its place. To investigate this rifting process, ...

Faults in oceanic crust contribute to slow seismic waves

The natural structure of the rigid oceanic crust that forms a shell around Earth contains cracks and faults. These fissures are hydrothermal pathways for heat, water, and chemical solutions to move between the ocean and the ...
