Scientists found gigantic cracks on the mantle under the Tibetan Plateau. The unprecedented glimpse of the sub-surface region explains the strange regions that earthquakes have been hitting in Tibet.
Who knew the first ever color produced by living things on Earth is a bright shade of pink? Scientists find 1.1-billion-year-old rocks with fossils of the earliest pigments in geological history.
This new layer of tectonic plates could be behind a mysterious set of earthquakes in the Pacific.
Zircon grains reveal a very, very different Earth from what we know.
Fault system that runs along San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles County could be overdue for a major earthquake with up to magnitude 7.3.
There are officially 208 minerals existing solely because of humans, a significant indication of a new geological time period: the Anthropocene Epoch.
The large submarine landslide on the slopes of the Great Bahama Bank could potentially generate hazardous tsunami waves several meters high along the east coasts of Florida and northern Cuba.
The European Space Agency (ESA) has begun the second phase of its PANGAEA field training for the astronauts’ future missions to the Red Planet.
The record-breaking mega-eruption that lasted for 180 days has produced a rare caldera collapse, a geological phenomenon that happens only for a number of times in a century.
A new study on sea level rise in the past decades have shown that cities along the East Coast of the United States are at a more flood-prone future, seeing how sea level rise in the area is more rapid compared to the rest of the world.
For the first time in 28 years, Alaska has a new butterfly: a possible hybrid between two related species that adapted to the harsh Arctic climate.
The mysterious Menominee Crack split down the middle of Michigan forest following a magnitude-1 earthquake in Oct. 2010. Researchers have now identified the strange feature as a geological pop-up.
An earthquake that starts out in one spot could more easily than thought leap to a nearby fault and create double earthquakes, as happened in Pakistan in 1997, says a new study. This could have impacts for Los Angeles.
While it's long been thought that sudden volcano eruptions happen because the magma below the mountain was collecting energy over decades or hundreds of years, a new study says things happen over a much shorter period.
