This pioneer in the field of mineral physics contributed mightily to our understanding of mineral properties at high temperatures and high pressures and of Earth’s interior.
In July, Eos looks at the incredible capabilities scientists have developed to recreate the enormous pressures and temperatures that exist far below the planet’s surface.
Scientists from different disciplines are working together to identify common challenges in and techniques for modeling fluid migration associated with subduction zone processes.
Geoscientists have created animations to help visualize different components of Earth’s carbon cycle.
Using electromagnetic waves originating in the ionosphere and magnetosphere, conductivity profiles reaching the deep upper mantle show surprising variability in water content.
Efforts to recover the missing airplane produced high-resolution bathymetry of the southern Indian Ocean that raises new ideas about how ocean crust forms.
Tomographers trace the slab subducting beneath South America into the lower mantle, providing the most complete picture of structure beneath the continent to date.
A new tomographic method based on correlations of seemingly chaotic earthquake coda waves yields otherwise unobservable arrivals, thus greatly improving illumination of the deep Earth.
