The bend in the Appalachian mountain chain is finally explained (7/23/2014)

The bend in the Appalachian mountain chain is finally explainedThe 1500 mile Appalachian mountain chain runs along a nearly straight line from Alabama to Newfoundland -- except for a curious bend in Pennsylvania and New York State. Researchers from the College of New Jersey and the University of Rochester now know what caused that bend -- a dense, underground block of rigid, volcanic rock forced the chain to shift eastward as it was forming millions of years ago. ...> Full Article


NMR under pressure: Reproducing deep-Earth chemistry (7/22/2014)

A new pressure cell invented by UC Davis researchers makes it possible to simulate chemical reactions deep in the Earth's crust. The device could allow insights into deep-Earth chemistry and carbon cycling, 'fracking' and nuclear waste disposal. ...> Full Article


New view of Rainier's volcanic plumbing (7/18/2014)

New view of Rainier's volcanic plumbingBy measuring how fast Earth conducts electricity and seismic waves, a University of Utah researcher and colleagues made a detailed picture of Mount Rainier's deep volcanic plumbing and partly molten rock that will erupt again someday. ...> Full Article


Scientists discover evidence of super-fast deep earthquake (7/16/2014)

Scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego have discovered the first evidence that deep earthquakes, those breaking at more than 400 kilometers (250 miles) below Earth's surface, can rupture much faster than ordinary earthquakes. The finding gives seismologists new clues about the forces behind deep earthquakes as well as fast-breaking earthquakes that strike near the surface. ...> Full Article


Earthquakes explained? New research shows friction and fracture are closely related (7/15/2014)

Earthquakes explained? New research shows friction and fracture are closely relatedOverturning conventional wisdom dating back to da Vinci, Hebrew University of Jerusalem researchers found that fracture -- how things break -- and friction -- how things slide -- are closely related. In laboratory-produced earthquakes, friction from the sliding of two contacting blocks occurred only when connections between their surfaces were ruptured -- fractured -- in an orderly process at nearly the speed of sound. The breakthrough helps explain processes deep beneath the earth's surface and describe the mechanics that drive earthquakes. ...> Full Article


New study of largely unstudied mesophotic coral reef geology (7/14/2014)

New study of largely unstudied mesophotic coral reef geologyA new study on biological erosion of mesophotic tropical coral reefs, which are low energy reef environments between 30-150 meters deep, provides new insights into processes that affect the overall structure of these important ecosystems. The purpose of the study was to better understand how bioerosion rates and distribution of bioeroding organisms, such as fish, mollusks and sponges, differ between mesophotic reefs and their shallow-water counterparts and the implications of those variations on the sustainability of the reef structure. ...> Full Article


Rewriting the history of volcanic forcing during the past 2,000 years (7/13/2014)

Rewriting the history of volcanic forcing during the past 2,000 yearsA team of scientists led by Michael Sigl and Joe McConnell of Nevada's Desert Research Institute have completed the most accurate and precise reconstruction to date of historic volcanic sulfate emissions in the Southern Hemisphere. The new record, described in the online edition of Nature Climate Change, is derived from a large number of individual ice cores collected at locations across Antarctica and is the first annually resolved record extending through the Common Era. ...> Full Article


Gas-charged fluids creating seismicity associated with a Louisiana sinkhole (7/12/2014)

In August 2012, the emergence of a very large sinkhole at the Napoleonville Salt Dome in Louisiana offered University of California, Berkeley scientists the opportunity to detect, locate and analyze a rich sequence of 62 seismic events that occurred one day prior to its discovery. ...> Full Article


Extinct undersea volcanoes squashed under Earth's crust cause tsunami earthquakes, according to new (7/11/2014)

Team develops a geothermometer for methane formation (7/10/2014)

Team develops a geothermometer for methane formationA team of scientists led by Caltech geochemist John M. Eiler has developed a new technique that can, for the first time, determine the temperature at which a natural methane sample formed. This determination can aid in figuring out how and where the gas formed. ...> Full Article


Ancient ocean currents may have changed pace and intensity of ice ages (7/9/2014)

Ancient ocean currents may have changed pace and intensity of ice agesClimate scientists have long tried to explain why ice-age cycles became longer and more intense some 900,000 years ago, switching from 41,000-year cycles to 100,000-year cycles. ...> Full Article


Research provides new theory on cause of ice age 2.6 million years ago (7/9/2014)

New research published today in the journal Nature Scientific Reports has provided a major new theory on the cause of the ice age that covered large parts of the Northern Hemisphere 2.6 million years ago. ...> Full Article


Fracking flowback could pollute groundwater with heavy metals (7/8/2014)

Fracking flowback could pollute groundwater with heavy metalsThe chemical makeup of wastewater generated by 'hydrofracking' could cause the release of tiny particles in soils that often strongly bind heavy metals and pollutants, exacerbating the environmental risks during accidental spills, Cornell University researchers have found. ...> Full Article


Oklahoma quakes induced by wastewater injection, study finds (7/7/2014)

The dramatic increase in earthquakes in central Oklahoma since 2009 is likely attributable to subsurface wastewater injection at just a handful of disposal wells, finds a new study to be published in the journal Science on July 3, 2014. ...> Full Article
