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 ...
Links to Mineral Physics part of SERC Web Resource Collection
This chart shows how mineral physics can be an important part of both research and education across the geology curriculum.
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) ...
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 ...
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 ...
D-DIA Apparatus part of SERC Web Resource Collection
This image is a schematic of a D-DIA apparatus used for mineral deformation experiments at high temperature and pressure.
