An astronomically dated record of Earth’s climate and its predictability over the last 66 million years

Deep-sea benthic foraminifera preserve an essential record of Earth's past climate in their oxygen- and carbon-isotope compositions. However, this record lacks sufficient temporal resolution and/or age control in some places to determine which climate forcing and feedback mechanisms were most import...

IRIS Earthquake Science

IRIS Earthquake Science

Watch the waves from the M7.8 Alaska earthquake roll across seismic stations in North America!

This animation, called a Ground Motion Visualization (GMV), shows the motion of the ground as detected on seismometers across North America - each dot is a seismic station and when the ground moves up it turns red and when it moves down it turns blue.

Waves generated by an earthquake travel around and through the earth, but they get smaller (attenuate) as they move away from the earthquake location, just like ripples in a pond. Once the earthquake waves are far enough away from the location where the earthquake occurred they can no longer be felt by people, BUT they can still be detected by sensitive seismic instruments. That's what this animation is showing - the waves from the M7.8 earthquake traveling both through the earth and across earth's surface - in the continental US the earthquake the waves are much too small to feel but not too small to measure. The scale is along the bottom. It is in micrometers (microns). For reference, the diameter of a human hair is ~50-75 microns.

The star shows the location of the earthquake. The green triangle is the station recording the seismogram shown along the bottom. The red line between the 2 is the "great circle path".

*Some of the instruments look like they are experiencing shaking before the seismic waves arrive. This is due to the setting of the animation and the calibration of the seismic instrument.

**The video is not reflecting the actual speed of the waves; it has been sped up. The time is shown along the bottom

This particular GMV is a brand new beta product generated using the vertical component of our Ground Motion Visualization (GMV). To produce a better coverage, the video is based on all available stations from any FDSN data center, using the fedcatalog service (http://service.iris.edu/irisws/fedcatalog/1/). The video uses the available BHZ, LHZ, or HHZ channel to produce the video, therefore provides a better coverage.

We are pleased to announce that during July 6-11, 2020 we will be streaming online seminars on calcareous nannoplankton every day. The International Nannoplankton Association (INA) in collaboration with the Aurora Science Communications want to invite you to be part of the project “Nannotalks”, whose objective is to promote knowledge of this fascinating microscopic group with students near and far, with colleagues in other fields, and with the general public. You can stream the talks live on YouTube.

First conference on July 6th

EST Time (New York) 10:00
CET Time (Central Europe) 16:00
GMT-5 (Colombia) 9:00

Important information:

• Keep your microphone muted!
• Please use the chat feature to ask any questions. Questions will be collected by the moderator and answered after the talk by the speaker.
• Every talk is planned to be ~20 minutes + 10 minutes of discussion.
• Due to the limited time, we encourage you to contact each researcher for unanswered questions.

Follow us on YouTube for more information.

Fossils are often formed by mineral replacement, and can be by various minerals; a few decades ago, a few rare specimens of emerald-replaced gastropod fossils were found by emerald miners in Colombia. Only a handful of these were ever found. Pic by Fabreminerals. @fossillocator (Twitter)

To commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Mount Saint Helen eruption, the picture below shows the resulting lahars of the eruption, clearing as far as 30-60 miles in extent.

These highly viscous density mudflows carry objects such as large boulders and logs, where the high drag and buoyancy forces can clear forests or any man made objects. During the explosion about 3 billion cubic yards of material was deposited, initiating these massive lahars (volcanoes.usgs.gov).

Death Valley National Park has a diverse and complex geologic history. Since its formation, the area that comprises the park has experienced at least four major periods of extensive volcanism, three or four periods of major sedimentation, and several intervals of major tectonic deformation where the crust has been reshaped. Two periods of glaciation (a series of ice ages) have also had effects on the area, although no glaciers ever existed in the ranges now in the park.

Flute casts are sedimentary structures produced by currents that scour scoop-shaped marks on the bottom of the sea floor.

These ones are positive marks filled with sediment, meaning that the sequence here is upside down.
