Geothermometer for methane formation developed
Science 2.0
Methane forms through a number of different biological and nonbiological processes under a wide range of conditions. And, unlike many other, more structurally complex molecules, simply knowing its chemical formula does not necessarily reveal how it formed. Therefore, it can be difficult to know where a sample of methane actually came from. But now a team of scientists has developed a new technique that can, for the first time, determine the temperature at which a natural methane sample formed.

How extinct undersea volcanoes trigger rare 'tsunami earthquakes'
LiveScience
How unusual slow earthquakes can spawn powerful tsunamis is a long-standing mystery that researchers may have finally solved. Called "tsunami earthquakes," these slow quakes are capable of creating huge waves that can cause serious damage to coastal cities. Tsunami earthquakes are not like typical earthquakes. They happen slowly and don't generate the same kind of violent shaking as typical earthquakes.

How red is dragon's blood? Studying rock color on Mars
Smithsonian
Attached to an actuator on the shoulder of NASA's Curiosity Rover exploring Mars is the color calibration target for the Hand Lens Imager, a camera that takes landscape portraits and close-up shots of rocks on Mars. Geologists want some way to know what color these Martian rocks would be on Earth. Color helps guide theories about a rock's composition or history.

New evidence of Earth's deep water cycle reveals a virtual buried ocean
KQED
Water is part of Earth's very definition as a planet. Clouds of water fill its atmosphere, oceans cover most of its surface, and groundwater is found everywhere underground. For the last century, geologists have been tracing the influence of water deeper and deeper into Earth’s interior.

Our planet's most abundant mineral now has a name
Phys.org
Deep below the earth's surface lies a thick, rocky layer called the mantle, which makes up the majority of our planet's volume. For decades, scientists have known that most of the lower mantle is a silicate mineral with a perovskite structure that is stable under the high-pressure and high-temperature conditions found in this region.

World War I anniversary: Life-saving role of geological heroes
Nottingham Post
During the First World War, people knew very little of the Geological Survey of Great Britain's (now the British Geological Survey) work and were suspicious when they saw men plotting fields, taking soil samples and, in one case, allegedly sitting in a tree drawing a plan of a military camp. These seemingly bizarre antics were actually an integral part of the war effort. The Survey provided recommendations for everything from the type of sand to use in trench sand bags to where to find clean drinking water on the Western Front.

Scotland shale gas and oil reserves 'modest' compared with England
The Guardian
Scotland boasts only "modest" reserves of shale gas and oil compared to England, and these may be difficult to access, according to a government-sponsored report that poured cold water on the idea of the country repeating its North Sea success through fracking for fossil fuels onshore. But the report studied only a small area of Scotland.

Almost everything you ever wanted to know about ancient volcanoes
The Raw Story
In a paper published recently in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers set out to find how the hottest and rarest type of volcanoes — the ancient komatiites — were formed. Knowing how and why komatiites are concentrated in specific belts could help discover new ore deposits, potentially worth billions of dollars.

Stanley Miller's forgotten experiments, analyzed
Georgia Institute of Technology via Phys.org
Stanley Miller, the chemist whose landmark experiment published in 1953 showed how some of the molecules of life could have formed on a young Earth, left behind boxes of experimental samples that he never analyzed. The first-ever analysis of some of Miller's old samples has revealed another way that important molecules could have formed on early Earth.

New lava activity at Hawaii's Puu Oo
West Hawaii Today
There's new activity at Hawaii's Puu Oo crater. On the morning of June 27, lava broke out at four locations on the crater's northeast flank, producing a channel flow that had traveled nearly a mile as of 11 a.m. that day. The northeast flow remained active the following morning, geologists at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reported.
