The Tectonic Activity of Earth May Be the Key To Supporting Life - Futurism


New research in exogeology, which blends astronomy and geology in the study of other worlds, indicates that plate tectonics may be key to supporting life. This may mean fewer exoplanets are capable of supporting life in the long term than previously ...

Earth's Tectonic Activity May Be Crucial for Life--and Rare in Our Galaxy - Scientific American


Because it is the only known planet to host both plate tectonics—that ongoing shuffling of tectonic plates—and life, many scientists think the two might be related. In fact, some researchers argue that shifting plates, which have the ability to help ...

Plate tectonics could be the key to finding extraterrestrial life - RedOrbit


The large-scale movement of massive slabs of rock that divide the Earth described by the theory of plate tectonics may be essential for life on this planet – and on other planets as well, according to new research posted online earlier this month on ...

Scientists have made a map that fills in a 500-million year gap in Earth's history - Quartz


Tectonic plates—the huge, constantly moving slabs of rock that make up the outermost layer of the Earth, the crust—are central to all these studies. Along with our colleagues, we have published the first whole-Earth plate tectonic map of half a ...

Stellar Chemical Clues As To The Rarity of Exoplanetary Tectonics - Astrobiology News (press release)


A major driver of steady-state plate tectonics on Earth is the sinking of the cold subducting plate into the underlying mantle. This sinking is the result of the combined effects of the thermal contraction of the lithosphere and of metamorphic ...

Strength of tectonic plates may explain shape of the Tibetan Plateau - Science Daily


Geoscientists have long puzzled over the mechanism that created the Tibetan Plateau, but a new study finds that the landform's history may be controlled primarily by the strength of the tectonic plates whose collision prompted its uplift. Given that ...and more »

Scientists set sail to unlock secrets of 'lost continent' Zealandia - Phys.Org


Australian National University's Neville Exon said the two-month expedition, setting out Friday from Townsville, would also help better understand major changes in the global tectonic configuration that started about 53 million years ago. This is ...
