GPS measurements of the Indian and Eurasian plates reveal four locked segments most likely to produce large earthquakes.
How the very slow moving African Continent, with a lithosphere of quite varied age elements and thickness, has responded to ongoing asthenospheric modification.
A recent paper in Reviews of Geophysics discussed how the mineral composition and microfabric of the continental crust influences its seismic properties.
Earthquakes in Idaho's panhandle are usually caused by the Earth's crust pulling apart. So why were earthquakes on 24 April pushing the crust together?
Rolf Meissner was one of the most influential Earth scientists in crustal and lithospheric research. In memory of Rolf, a scientific symposium will be held at the University of Kiel in June.
