Peering into the Crystal Fabric of Rocks part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This Oceanus article describes the work of Greg Hirth, a geologist studying rock deformation and crystallography. It discusses how rocks deform as a function of pressure and heat (called rheology) ...

Molten rock makes big earthquakes bigger part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This resource provides an abstract. A modified friction welding device was used to spin one small cylinder of granite against another at high speed and pressure in order to simulate two plates ...

Improving earthquake warning in Costa Rica part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This resource provides an abstract. This study examines seismic waves from a segment of the Middle America subduction zone below Central America that are capable of producing strong earthquakes. ...

Stopping stick-slip seismic events? part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This resource provides an abstract. This study models underground frictional resistance in stick-slip seismic events in order to determine the amount of energy needed to weaken a fault plane enough ...

Thermal Emission Spectroscopy of Martian Meteorites part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This site, from the Hawai'i Institute of Geophysics and Planetology, answers commonly asked questions about Martian meteorites, ranging from queries about how meteorites are recognized and ...

Mineral Resources On Line Spatial Data part of SERC Web Resource Collection

Ths portal allows users to view or download spatial data on regional and global geology, geochemistry, geophysics, and mineral resources. The data can be accessed by using interactive map browsers of ...

Ultra-High-Pressure Experimentalist Who Studies the Deep Earth part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This article profiles the work of Elise Knittle, whose research specialty is mineral physics. The essay gives an overview of the core, mantle, and crust of the Earth, including what we know about ...

Capabilities of Experimental Apparatus part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This diagram displays the pressure/temperature conditions capable of being simulated with two types of experimental equipment: Piston-Cylinder and USSA-2000. The ranges of conditions are plotted on a ...

CVD Anvil part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This image is of a diamond anvil used in high pressure deformation experiments. This particular diamond was created using the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) method. These artificial diamonds have ...
