Shrubs and trees across the United States routinely sip water stored in bedrock, a discovery that has implications for the terrestrial water cycle.
The geologic record suggests that despite Earth’s hot, thin crust during the Proterozoic, mountains were still able to form thanks to an extinct style of crustal deformation.
A combination of waveform tomography and hydrothermal modelling allows characterizing the mechanisms and reach of fluid flux and ocean plate cooling near mid-ocean ridges with unprecedented detail.
The first comprehensive analysis of what the sarsen stones are made of came about with new technology—and good old-fashioned luck.
How did today’s continents come to be? Geological sleuths found clues in grains of sand.
A team of geologists and nursing researchers created an interactive radon hazard map for Kentucky residents—and it was possible only because of the high-resolution bedrock mapping in the state.
As Earth ruptures, micas kink. These kink bands hide in rocks millions of years old, preserving evidence of past quakes.
A new book presents an overview of crustal magmatic systems and explores variations within these systems through analytical, experimental, and numerical approaches.
A new study of seafloor sediments finds that the temperature record in the early Paleozoic corresponds to significant shifts in the diversity of life on Earth.
Researchers are engaging their students with low-cost seismology research to monitor local noise on campus.
