Using thermokinematics, researchers have found that crustal accretion along the megathrust at mid-lower crustal depths shapes plateau growth and regional drainage development.
By sampling and analyzing zircons from glacial eskers dating from about 20,000 years ago, the extent of the oldest known rocks on Earth can be better mapped and constrained.
Grouping minerals by how they were formed yields insights into our planet’s evolution across billions of years.
Through a local fixed time-step filter, global Holocene magnetic field models remain mathematically tractable refining our insight into field variability and improving archeological dating.
A new database compiles all the available pieces of information about Colombia’s geochronology, offering scientists a consistent framework in which to view and study the data in a broader context.
By analyzing rare Martian meteorites, researchers have uncovered a crystalline structure created by a large asteroid or comet impact that potentially affected the Red Planet’s habitability.
When directors depart argon labs, what happens to their expensive equipment, skilled staff, and institutional knowledge?
Geochronologists are finding fresh approaches to familiar methodologies, especially by zapping rocks with lasers to tackle classic Precambrian problems.
Researchers who study the formation of Earth show how ingenuity can shed light on hidden moments of creation.
Una vez que una erupción volcánica masiva termina, el sistema subyacente puede mantenerse activo por miles de años. Una nueva investigación vislumbra cómo funcionan los ciclos de super erupciones.
