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.
This new layer of tectonic plates could be behind a mysterious set of earthquakes in the Pacific.
There may be a need to study the center of the Earth to settle once and for all if the Earth's core is 100 degrees hotter than previously thought. A recent study suggests that the mantle is indeed hotter and it may greatly affect Earth sciences.
The world’s biggest diamonds are by far the most prized and most valuable of gemstones. Coincidentally, these rare and large diamonds also hold valuable scientific data that could reveal detailed information about the earth according to diamond geologist of the Gemological Institute of America, Even Smith.
Do "aliens" exist on Earth? In a way, experts think so, and they believe that these creatures can be found thriving in massive underground oceans hidden hundreds of miles beneath the Earth's surface.
Scientists discovered a mineral far below the Earth’s surface that could be able to store water farther down the Earth’s mantle.
A team of international scientists has discovered a new way to produce images of Earth’s interior. The new method could provide a new understanding of the Earth’s crust and help in studying interiors of other celestial bodies.
A new study suggests that the Earth and other planetary objects formed in the early years of the solar system have the same chemical origins.
Recent studies found that magnesium peroxide may be abundant in extremely oxidized mantles and cores of rocky planets outside our solar system.
Helium leakage is taking place in a 30-mile stretch of the Los Angeles Basin, say researchers.
During the violent beginnings of early Earth some 4.6 billion years ago, it seems that weathermen could have forecast iron rain - storms that supposedly led to the formation of the Earth's core and even the Moon, according to a new study.
Scientists have long wondered how our planet came to be covered 70 percent by ocean, and now a new study has found that Earth may have made its own water from within.
The source of volcanic eruptions seems to be closer to the surface than previously thought, according to a new study that challenges the conventional view of how these phenomena occur.
