Reservoirs of oxygen-rich iron between the Earth's core and mantle could have played a major role in Earth's history, including the breakup of supercontinents,...

Plume-subduction interaction forms large auriferous provinces

Gold enrichment at the crustal or mantle source has been proposed as a key ingredient in the production of giant gold deposits and districts....

Study sheds new light on earth’s evolution

Research from the University of Texas at Arlington and the Wadia Institute of Himalayan Geology suggests that hydrogen, oxygen, water and carbon dioxide are...

Researcher unearths hottest rock on record

It was a stroke of serendipity that led to Michael Zanetti's discovery of the hottest rock on Earth. In 2011, Zanetti, now a postdoctoral researcher...
