The mantle’s resistance to flow appears different for glacial and plate tectonic timescales but this behavior can be reconciled with new thermo-mechanical models of the asthenosphere.
Topography and exhumation vary strongly along the Apennines, reflecting the geometry of the Moho and different geodynamic mechanisms.
Most of the Alps are considered tectonically dead, but according to new research, the southeastern region—home to prosecco wine—is very much alive.
What caused a tsunami 30,000 times more powerful than the December 26, 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami? A new modeling study says this was one of the results from the Cretaceous Chicxulub asteroid impact.
New research reveals how the presence and absence of magmatism governs how shear zones initiate, grow, and reactivate to connect lower and upper crustal deformation.
Using thermokinematics, researchers have found that crustal accretion along the megathrust at mid-lower crustal depths shapes plateau growth and regional drainage development.
Hillslopes play a critical role in linking ecosystems. Understanding the forces that drive their connections can help us to better understand adaptation in the face of climate change.
Mapping of a 2018 earthquake that ruptured the eastern flank of Mount Etna shows that it occurred on a tectonic lineament that predates the volcano, and the kinematics match nearby tectonic domains.
