Ground-Based Lasers Vie With Satellites To Map Earth’s Magnetic Field

Mapping the Earth’s magnetic field – to find oil, track storms or probe the planet’s interior – typically requires expensive satellites. University of California, Berkeley, physicists have now come up with a much cheaper way to measure the Earth’s magnetic field

Underwater Volcanoes a hotbed of clues to Earth’s movements

Nearly half a mile of rock retrieved from beneath the seafloor is yielding new clues about how underwater volcanoes are created and whether the underlying hot spots of molten rock that lead to their formation have moved over time.Geoscientists have just completed an

New deep-sea volcanic vents found in Antarctic’s Southern Ocean

British researchers say the discovery of deep-sea volcanic vents in the Antarctic’s Southern Ocean suggests they’re more common than previously thought.

Deep-sea vents are hot springs on the seafloor, where mineral-rich water nourishes colonies of
