Ten years of interdisciplinary studies since the disastrous Tohoku-oki earthquake have improved our knowledge of earthquake-cycle processes and hazard, but prediction of such events remains elusive.
New seismic imaging study of the Puysegur Trench aims to solve one of the last major questions in plate tectonics.
Detailing the development of the metamorphic sole beneath the Oman–United Arab Emirates ophiolite provides insight into subduction zone processes.
Increased glaciation in the North Patagonian Andes may have influenced tectonic dynamics over the past 7 million years, suggesting a connection between climate change and mountain-building processes.
A new study extends the calibration of the Mesozoic Sequence down to the Mid Jurassic with multiscale marine magnetic anomaly data, demonstrating extraordinarily high reversal frequency.
How have these continental relics from Earth’s early history survived the plate tectonic mixing machine?
A decade-long research collaboration has revealed that the split between Africa and North America roughly 200 million years ago was more drawn out than previously thought.
Geodetic observations collected during back-to-back decadal research campaigns have revealed crucial new insights into the start–stop and slow-motion behavior of subduction zones.
Over the past decade, the GeoPRISMS program has greatly expanded understanding of shoreline-spanning Earth systems processes and fostered a vibrant and increasingly diverse community of researchers.
As the decade-long GeoPRISMS program comes to an end this spring, Eos’s April issue features just a few its accomplishments.
