A special collection in Tectonics on geodynamics in the Mediterranean region celebrates the life and work of the renowned Italian geologist Renato Funiciello.
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.
How do greenhouse gases and water circulate from minerals deep below Earth’s surface into the atmosphere and oceans—and then back again? Our understanding continues to evolve.
A multidisciplinary team is jointly investigating mammal evolution and subduction dynamics to unravel how flightless land mammals migrated to the Greater Antilles and other Caribbean islands.
Research into past seismic activity shows northeast Israel is still vulnerable to large quakes.
A new study that combines constraints from the 2015 Gorkha earthquake, forward models of deforming crust, and thermochronology data gives new insights into the structure of the Himalaya.
Flat-slab subduction appears to have played a minor role in the growth of the Southern Central Andes, with evidence for eastward migrating deformation.
Comparing recent GPS data with a longer record of sea level along the western coast of North America allows researchers to home in on interseismic deformation above the Cascadia megathrust.
