Characterization of the regional, crustal, and global distribution and abundance of the heat producing elements and their geoneutrino flux
The amount and distribution of radiogenic power generation from the heat producing elements (HPE) U, Th, and K in the Earth is not well constrained. Compositional estimates of these elements vary by a factor of three in ...
Using Shear Waves to Characterize a Firn Aquifer on the Helheim Glacier in Southeast Greenland
The Greenland ice sheet is melting at an accelerating rate due to increasing global average temperatures. Ice penetrating radar surveys and ice cores extracted from the southeastern margin of the Greenland ice sheet near ...
THE SEDIMENT AND CRUSTAL STRUCTURE OF THE SOUTHEASTERN UNITED STATES
The Southeastern United States (SEUS) preserves a detailed geologic record of the continental collision and rifting that has shaped it over billions of years. Currently the SEUS lies on a passive margin far away from ongoing ...
APPLYING GEODESY TO MODEL POSTSEISMIC SLIP OF THE 2016 MW 6.4 MEINONG EARTHQUAKE
In regions of rapid convergence such as southwest Taiwan, unmapped active structures at multiple depths increase the uncertainty of seismic hazard estimates. The 2016 Mw 6.4 MeiNong earthquake occurred below the main Taiwan ...
ROCK FLUID INTERACTION AND ITS EFFECT ON BRITTLE ROCK DEFORMATION
Accurate assessments of Earth’s dynamic processes, which produce earthquakes and volcanoes, require better understanding of rock deformation. All rocks, to some extent, contain pores. In the Earth’s crust, the pore space ...
STRUCTURE OF CONTINENTAL LITHOSPHERE FROM TRANSDIMENSIONAL BAYESIAN INVERSION OF SURFACE WAVES AND RECEIVER FUNCTIONS
Continental crust and the underlying lithospheric mantle make up the continental lithosphere of the Earth. Our understanding of its structure and composition is limited by the inaccessibility of Earth’s deep interior. ...
