Costa Rican volcano spews material 300 meters high after explosion inside crater
The Tico Times
The crater of Costa Rica's Poas Volcano expelled material 300 meters into the air at noon on Feb. 25. The phenomenon, called a phreatic explosion, occurred due to a reaction between magma and water at the southern border of the lake inside the volcano. However, this was not an eruption and the volcano did not spew lava. Instead, a column of steam, gas and other materials formed and spouted out the top of the volcano, confirmed the Volcanological and Seismological Observatory of Costa Rica.

Geologists: Mount Vesuvius will erupt again
Guardian Libety Voice
Pompeii's Mount Vesuvius is very much an active volcano and will erupt again, according to many geologists and volcanologists studying the volcano. The mountain's last eruption was in 1944 and has erupted over three dozen times since the devastating explosion in 79 A.D.  In 1780 B.C. the volcano spewed millions of tons of superheated lava, ash and rocks over 20 miles high into the skies, known as an Avellino eruption.

Confirmed: Oldest fragment of early Earth is 4.4 billion years old
LiveScience via Fox News
Scientists just took one of geology's biggest controversies and shrunk it down to atomic size. By zapping single atoms of lead in a tiny zircon crystal from Australia, researchers have confirmed the crystal is the oldest rock fragment ever found on Earth at 4.375 billion years old, plus or minus 6 million years. Confirmation of the zircon age holds enormous implications for models of early Earth.

The dawn of plate tectonics
Science/AAAS
A journey to the Mariana Trench, the deepest crevice on Earth’s surface, reveals the great Pacific tectonic plate descending deep into the planet where it recycles back into mantle rock. This recycling of old tectonic plate, called subduction, drives plate tectonics and is nothing new to scientists, but exactly when the process got started is a hot debate. A new study may put that to rest by unmasking a sequence of 4.4-billion-year-old lavas as the remnants of the first subduction zone on Earth.

Decades of rising seas predicted as huge Antarctic glacier melts
Digital Journal
Pine Island Glacier, part of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet and the biggest single contributor to rises in global sea levels, continues to melt at record rates. The melt could continue for decades, according to new research. Not only is the Pine Island Glacier retreating, it's doing so at an accelerating rate. That's one of the findings of a team of geologists from the U.K., U.S. and Germany. They found that this isn’t the first time the Pine Island Glacier has experienced such rapid contraction.

Clay babies go back thousands of years
Burlington Free Press
Deep in the heart of the last ice age, at the bottom of a glacial lake, the clay babies were born. Clay babies are not fossils, but the result of a unique geological process. At its core, a clay baby has a little scrap of organic matter. A dead worm, perhaps, drifted to the lake bottom and was coated by a varve.
