Seismic monitoring of Yellowstone’s Steamboat Geyser showed that signals appeared weaker in winter—because of snow cover.
The EarthScope Consortium Board of Directors is pleased to announce the selection of Dr. Rebecca Bendick as the first CEO of EarthScope Consortium.
The hands-on Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) Field Experience was held at the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado, gathering participants for intensive work exploring this exciting technology and the observations it enables.
Subduction zones play a crucial role in recycling old oceanic crust, while also carrying water into Earth’s interior. Magnetotelluric imaging can help scientists better see where fluids have accumulated in the crust.
Ultralow velocity zones are among the strangest structures inside Earth and their origins have been debated for decades—including a new paper in Science Advances.
For EarthScope Consortium’s instrumentation staff, the merger of IRIS and UNAVCO isn’t just about the people. The instruments themselves now have more opportunities to team up, too.
We believe there is an opportunity to further our science support mission and to ensure we can better meet the needs of commercial users by piloting the implementation of fees for commercial use of real-time data.
Save the date for the EarthScope reception at AGU!
The metaphor of a “slippery slope” is often invoked for things that might quickly get out of control, but in glaciology these words can be applied more literally. In a warming world, we want to know how quickly ice sheets can melt and raise sea level.
Antarctica’s ice sheets are on the move, with the solid ice flowing toward the surrounding oceans. This exodus toward the coasts, explains Paul Winberry, a seismologist at Central Washington University, is enabled by fast moving ice streams—regions where liquid water located at the interface between the ice and underlying subsurface facilitates an ice sheet’s seaward slide.
