A look deep into the earth’s crust shows a source of heat that can stabilize continents

Rocks collected from Kilbourne Hole Crater in New Mexico showed that the thinning lithosphere in the Rio Grande rift provides heat necessary to stabilize continents for billions of years. Photo credit: Penn State Rocks from the Rio Grande Rift have provided a rare snapshot of active geology deep in the Earth’s crust, revealing new evidence of how continents remain stable …

Mysterious underground continents may be as old as Earth

Ancient, gigantic regions of rocks as large as continents exist within miles of the earth's crust and could be as old as the planet itself, The study uses models to trace the location and origin of volcanic rock samples found buried in the planet's deep mantle. The findings, published in the journal Geochemistry, Geophysics, Geosystems, suggest the large rock regions …

New model proposes lost continents for early Earth

Models for the distribution of crustal strength in early Earth. The crust in the prevailing paradigm is mostly oceanic with a thin continental crust. The new model predicts a thicker and larger continental part that did not survive. Credit: University of Adelaide A new radioactivity model of the Earth's ancient rocks is calling into question current models for the formation …

Satellite unveils remnants of lost continents under Antarctic

Researchers used gravitational data from ESA's GOCE satellite to discover remnants of lost continents hidden deep beneath the Antarctic ice. The Gravity Field and Ocean Circulation Explorer (GOCE) satellite orbited Earth for more than four years from 2009 to 2013 By using GOCE's gravitational data set, researchers have gained new insights into the structure and properties of the Antarctic, which …

Science News: Fresh satellite imagery shows that the lost continents are hidden under the Antarctic Science | news

The European Space Agency (ESA) has published pioneering satellite imagery revealing a wealth of new information about the ancient continents dating back to 180 million years ago. According to ESA, these masses are just 1 mile (1.6 km) below Antartica, but have never been tracked before. The photos show new information about the Antarctic, the sixth and least understood continent …
