Runaway process drives intermediate-depth earthquakes, Stanford scientists find
Stanford scientists may have solved the mystery of what drives a type of earthquake that occurs deep within the Earth and accounts for one in four quakes worldwide. View News Article (2013-12-11)


Post-Sandy, Long Island barrier systems appear surprisingly sound
As coastal communities continue to rebuild in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, scientists at this week's annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union offer some encouraging news: the storm did not seriously damage the offshore barrier system that controls erosion on Long Island.  View News Article (2013-12-11)


Model Suggests Ocean Currents Shape Europa's Icy Shell in Ways Critical for Potential Habitats
In a finding of relevance to the search for life in our solar system, researchers at The University of Texas at Austin's Institute for Geophysics, the Georgia Institute of Technology, and the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research have shown that the subsurface ocean on Jupiter's moon Europa may have deep currents and circulation patterns with heat and energy transfers capable of...

Variation of halogens in martian soil calls for an atmosphere-surface cycle
In the November issue of Icarus, researchers from LSU's Department of Geology & Geophysics and Stony Brook's Department of Geosciences assess the details of halogen variability and an unusual process that may influence it. View News Article (2013-11-18)


Researchers develop algorithm to identify individual grains of Mars soil
Instruments on the Curiosity Mars rover not only measure the chemistry of rocks, elemental abundances of soils and wind speeds, but also take an incredible number of images from both mast-mounted cameras and up-close imaging systems mounted to robotic arms. View News Article (2013-11-18)


Extrusive volcanism formed the Hawaiian Islands
A recent study by researchers at the University of Hawaii - Manoa (UHM) School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) and the University of Rhode Island (URI) changes the understanding of how the Hawaiian Islands formed. View News Article (2013-10-07)


Slow earthquakes may foretell larger events
Monitoring slow earthquakes may provide a basis for reliable prediction in areas where slow quakes trigger normal earthquakes, according to Penn State geoscientists.  View News Article (2013-08-16)


Scientists cast doubt on theory of what triggered Antarctic glaciation
A team of U.S. and U.K. scientists has found geologic evidence that casts doubt on one of the conventional explanations for how Antarctica's ice sheet began forming. View News Article (2013-07-12)
