...the best existing geochronological constraints come from volcanic successions with little paleoenvironmental information.
Seismic attenuation imaging provides insights into subsurface structures that are complementary to velocity and conductivity images.
Slow earthquakes are characterized by slower fault slips than ordinary earthquakes but faster than stable sliding, with various characteristic timescales ranging from seconds to years....
Delta fronts are often characterized by high rates of sediment supply that result in unstable slopes and a wide variety of soft‐sediment deformation, including the formation of...
Almost all seismic stations around the world are based on land, leaving many oceanic earthquakes undetected. Harnessing the million-plus kilometers of underwater fiber-optic cables to...
Recent paleontological work described and published a new genus and species of Paleozoic fossil plant, named "Douropteris alvarezii", that honors Professor Walter Alvarez.
