Looking for the origin of slow earthquakes in the Guerrero gap

We are underway on our 48-day long expedition offshore of the west coast of Mexico near Acapulco, where the young Cocos oceanic plate dives beneath the North American plate. Most of this subduction zone, often referred to ...

New research could provide earlier warning of tsunamis

A new method of detecting mega earthquakes, which picks up on the gravity waves they generate by using deep-learning models created at Los Alamos National Laboratory, can estimate earthquake magnitude in real time and provide ...

Potential of leaking modes to reveal underground structure

Uncovering the geologic structure beneath Earth's surface is important for a variety of reasons, including identifying natural resources and studying earthquake hazards. Scientists image Earth's subsurface by observing seismic ...

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, ...

Possible chemical leftovers from early Earth sit near the core

Let's take a journey into the depths of the Earth, down through the crust and mantle nearly to the core. We'll use seismic waves to show the way, since they echo through the planet following an earthquake and reveal its internal ...

Using the Earth's noise to see beneath the Greenland ice sheet  

The noise created by the Earth's movements has been used to build up a detailed picture of the geological conditions beneath the Greenland Ice Sheet and the impact on ice flow, described in new research led by Swansea University. ...
