Earth's Inner Core: Earth's Solid Metal Sphere Is 'Textured'

Scientists used seismic data discovered Earth's inner core displays a variety of textures that it acquired will it formed from within the fluid outer core. The data set was generated over the past 27 years by a network of seismometers set up to enforce the nuclear test ban ...

水Storage Capacity in Oceanic Crust Slabs Increases With Age, Researchers Find

An international research team has discovered that a subduction zone's age affects the ability for it to recycle water between the Earth's surface and its inner layers. The more mature the subduction zone, the bigger the water storage ...

Researchers Unearth the Mysteries of How Turkey's East Anatolian Fault Formed

第一次,一个国际研究小组accurately determined the age of the East Anatolian fault, allowing geologists to learn more about its seismic history and tendency to produce ...

What Are the Characteristics of Foreshocks for Large Earthquakes?

Seismologists agree that foreshocks are the most widely identified signal of an upcoming mainshock earthquake. But do these foreshock sequences have distinctive characteristics that separate them from aftershock sequences, and could these characteristics be used to help forecast ...
