A geomagnetic reversal can turn life on Earth (literally) upside down.
Recently analyzed lava samples suggest water was present when the planets were just beginning to form.
It has been assumed that as continents break up, drift apart, and are pushed back together again, their cores, also known as cratons, remain stable. However, new research shows that these cores might not be as solid as previously thought.
Balanced on tips or in other precarious positions, rocks in California between the San Andreas and San Jacinto fault lines remain undisturbed. Researchers have new findings on how that could be, and some thoughts on earthquake planning.
A study details how mantle plumes may cause massive rift systems where they otherwise should not be. However, other geologists have long argued that these theoretical plumes don't even exist. A new 3D model may help get to the bottom of this subterranean mystery.
Graceful and awe-inspiring sandstone arches seen all over the globe have long been thought to be the products of wind and rain erosion. However, researchers are now suggesting that these factors are simply a means to an end, with gravity and the stone itself being the true sculptors.
Forget large-scale excavations, metal detectors and cadaver dogs - a group of scientists led by Jamie Pringle, a lecturer in geoscience at Keele University in the United Kingdom, are pioneering new techniques to be used in discovering secret graves through the use of geophysics.
