An international team overcame many challenges, including from the COVID-19 pandemic, to deploy a dense seismic network along an understudied fault system that poses hazards to millions in Indonesia.
High-resolution seismic models of the Nova Scotia margin reveal a role for magmatism in continental breakup, even at magma-poor sections of the eastern North American margin.
The emplacement of the Samail Ophiolite in Oman has been a source of disagreement among geologists. New state-of-the-art research offers a fresh perspective on its timing and geometry.
Researchers use a closed-loop modeling strategy to validate regional uplift patterns recorded in river profiles across the African continent.
New research examines whether a sudden increase in water loading in Pakistan’s Mangla Dam might have been connected to the 2019 New Mirpur earthquake.
Australian rocks 3.25 billion years old preserved the oldest signs of Earth’s stable magnetic field and quickly moving crust, critical elements of life’s evolution.
New findings contrast with a prevailing hypothesis for low seismic velocity in subduction zones.
A physics-based method estimates the duration of earthquakes’ coseismic phase and can help improve the precision of coseismic slip models and magnitude estimates.
Researchers look to the fossil rock record to unearth the driving forces for variable seismic speed through subduction zones.
