Agency takes tectonics study to earthquake-prone Alaska - Hawaii News Now


It's tied to the theory of plate tectonics, which holds that Earth's rigid outer layer is broken into large, mobile plates, like pieces of shell on a hard-boiled egg, if the shell pieces moved along, over and under each other. Tectonic plates average ...and more »

Ancient rivers show lack of plate tectonics on Mars and Titan - Cosmos


River system patterns indicate that plate tectonics exerts a greater influence on landscape on Earth than it does on Mars or Saturn's moon Titan. The processes that created the topography of Titan and Mars are not well understood, so a team led by ...

New timeline proposed for plate tectonics - Phys.Org


Stagnant lid tectonics is proposed for tectonically and magmatically vigorous planets like Venus that do not have plate tectonics. Such a tectonic regime likely occurred early on when Earth was still much hotter and the lithosphere was thinner, so ...

Is the climate consensus 97%, 99.9%, or is plate tectonics a hoax? - The Guardian


In his critique of our study, Powell argued that on scientific theories as settled as human-caused global warming or plate tectonics, scientists don't bother to state the obvious. In our 97% paper, we examined how many studies endorsed, rejected or ...

Map of the underworld may let us play plate tectonics in reverse - New Scientist


The road to hell may be paved with good intentions, but at least there's now a map to get you there. The map is the first to show the whereabouts of almost 100 massive remnants of what were once tectonic plates, but which long ago sank into the bowels ...

There could be an extra, ancient layer of tectonic plates lurking under east Asia - ZME Science


While the theory of plate tectonics has been fought tooth and claw since its early days, it has gained widespread support in the last fifty or so years. The short of it is that the crust isn't a single monolithic piece, but rather made up of a series ...

Catlin Smith's contemplative, inconclusive music at Tectonics - Herald Scotland


“Maybe people are wanting work that allows you space to just be with it,” suggests Linda Catlin Smith, a Toronto-based composer whose calm, clear music features at this weekend's Tectonics festival in Glasgow. Catlin Smith is part of what she calls a ...

Whole-mantle convection with tectonic plates preserves long-term global patterns of upper mantle geochemistry - Phys.Org


This movement of the plates results in the process we call plate tectonics, and no other planet we know shows evidence of this process. Why or how plate tectonics started on this planet is not understood, but it has been utterly essential in the ...and more »
