Novel experiments give glimpses of Earth's interior dynamics
Scripps Institute of Oceanography
Results from new geophysical experiments led by a researcher at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego are helping scientists understand the complex forces unfolding tens of miles below the planet's surface. To understand such inner-Earth dynamics, Scripps researchers track and measure electrical currents as they travel through rocks and magma.

Global database of paleocurrent trends through the Phanerozoic and Precambrian
Scientific Data
Paleocurrents are sedimentological features contained in all sedimentary deposits, enabling the direction of movement of the sediment and the containing fluid at the time of deposition to be determined. This database contains paleocurrent directions and other relevant associated data from published sources and theses and dissertations for the entire Phanerozoic and Precambrian for all continents.

Isthmus of Panama: Geological game-changer
Space Daily
A long-standing fact widely accepted among the scientific community has been recently refuted, which now has major implications on our understanding of how Earth has evolved. Until recently, most geologists had determined the land connecting North and South America, the Isthmus of Panama, had formed 3.5 million years ago. But new data shows that this geological event, which dramatically changed the world, occurred much earlier.

Study challenges old notions about Earth's mantle
Southern Illinois University
Professor Eric Ferré, along with fellow Southern Illinois University geology faculty James Conder, associate professor, and Justin Filiberto, assistant professor, are in the midst of a two- to three-year study examining the magnetic properties of the internal structure of the Earth, specifically the upper mantle, and in doing so are challenging notions scientists thought they put to bed nearly 40 years ago.

Great Lakes Graphite demonstrates 99 percent carbon purity using simple flotation process
Marketwired via Geology For Investors
Great Lakes Graphite Inc. announced the results from its ongoing graphite mineral beneficiation program being conducted at Process Research ORTECH's facilities in Mississauga, Ontario. The primary focus of the program is to determine the highest purity levels that can be achieved using the flake material from the Lochaber Graphite Project and to identify the processes and methods that are required to achieve those standards. Results have now demonstrated that purity levels of up to 99 percent can be achieved using only a simple flotation process.

How much water did Rome's aqueducts really carry?
Smithsonian
In ancient Rome, a series of majestic aqueducts brought water to the masses in a feat of architectural and engineering prowess that's still visible in Europe today. But just how much water did those structures really bring to the city? Not as much as previously thought. New research has shed light on the amount of water held by Rome's "majestic" Anio Novus aqueduct.

Scientists solve milky rain riddle
Phys.org
The riddle of the milky rain that pelted parts of the Pacific Northwest on Feb. 6 and stumped meteorologists from Spokane to Atlanta appears to be solved. After reviewing meteorological data — along with test results from samples taken of the whitish substance — a multidisciplinary group of scientists at Washington State University has ruled out these trending theories: ash from faraway volcanic eruptions, ashy debris from last year's wild fires and fallout from a Nevada dust storm. They believe the source of the mysterious rain was a shallow saline lake in Oregon, some 480 miles away.

Record flooding could mean big problems for Gulf of Mexico
KBTX-TV
Record rainfall totals in many parts of Texas the past few weeks means a record amount of freshwater pouring into the Gulf of Mexico — as high as 10 times the normal rate — and that could lead to huge problems for marine life and commercial fishermen very soon, warns a Texas A&M University oceanographer.
