Second Workshop on Analog Modeling of Tectonic Processes; Austin, Texas, 17–19 May 2017
A recent article in Reviews of Geophysics examined the areas of land globally that are classified as drylands and the impact of their growth on human communities.
The first attempt to couple models of hydrothermal circulation and magmatic convection along fast-spreading ridges may explain the spacing of hydrothermal vent fields along the East Pacific Rise.
Researchers recreate changes in the seafloor during Japan's devastating 2011 tsunami.
AGU/SEG Joint Workshop on Upper Crust Physics of Rocks; Hilo, Hawaii, 11–14 July 2016
An ever-growing group of scientists seeks to integrate rock deformation labs from across the United States into one shared national facility.
New Web resources enable scientists to standardize the naming of seamounts, trenches, and other undersea features, reducing ambiguity in identification and communication.
Falling ground temperatures in the cold season are found to trigger shallow, slow-moving landslides on slopes with clayey soil.
A comparison of water content in undeformed and deformed quartz indicates that grains may change shape via weakening processes that cannot be duplicated in laboratory experiments.
Richard P. Von Herzen, a pioneer of marine heat flow studies who helped validate plate tectonics and discover oceanic hydrothermal vents, passed away on 28 January 2016. He was 85.
