Most of Earth's copper is buried deep
Laboratory Equipment    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Earth is clingy when it comes to copper. A new Rice University study in the journal Science finds that nature conspires at scales both large and small — from the realms of tectonic plates down to molecular bonds — to keep most of Earth's copper buried dozens of miles below ground. More

Using new technology to measure nitrogen in coastal surface waters
MIT News Office    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
While many of us, especially those of us trying to feed young children, think of nutrients as desirable, it is possible to have too much of a good thing. Excessive nutrients in an ecosystem disturb the chemical and environmental balance that allows native plants and animals to thrive in harmony. More

Age of oldest rocks off by millions of years
New Scientist    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Two of the solar system's best natural timekeepers have been caught misbehaving, suggesting that the accepted ages for the oldest known rocks are wrong. Both radioactive clocks are used to chart the history of events on our planet. In one method for aging rock, you use the relative amounts of various isotopes — versions of the same element with different atomic masses — to give a snapshot of the make-up of the rock when it formed.

A team of researchers led by Sebastien Bertrand, of the WHOI Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry department, took sediment samples during five weeks of field work in the fjords of Chilean Patagonia. More

A mantle-driven surge in magma supply to Kilauea Volcano during 2003 — 2007
Nature Geoscience    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The eruptive activity of a volcano is fundamentally controlled by the rate of magma supply. At Kilauea Volcano, Hawai'i, the rate of magma rising from a source within Earth's mantle, through the Hawaiian hotspot, was thought to have been relatively steady in recent decades. More
