Geophysicists challenge traditional theory underlying the origin of mid-plate volcanoes
A long-held assumption about the Earth is discussed in today's edition of Science, as Don L. Anderson, an emeritus professor with the Seismological Laboratory of the California Institute of Technology, and Scott King, a professor of geophysics in the College of Science at Virginia Tech, look at how a layer beneath the Earth's crust may be responsible for volcanic eruptions. View News Article (2014-12-05)


New Map Exposes Previously Unseen Details of Seafloor
Accessing two previously untapped streams of satellite data, scientists at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego and their colleagues have created a new map of the world's seafloor, creating a much more vivid picture of the structures that make up the deepest, least-explored parts of the ocean. View News Article (2014-10-03)


Study of Chilean quake shows potential for future earthquake
Near real-time analysis of the April 1 earthquake in Iquique, Chile, showed that the 8.2 event occurred in a gap on the fault unruptured since 1877 and that the April event was not what the scientists had expected, according to an international team of geologists.  View News Article (2014-08-14)


Stanford breakthrough provides picture of underground water
