Where one tectonic plate dives beneath another, the world’s largest earthquakes occur

Scientists make intriguing discoveries into 'slow-motion ' quakes often observed around NZ. Earthquake And Tsunami, Scientists, Mystery, Fire, Events, Deep, Technology, Play, Tech

Unusual slow-burning quakes that silently unfold deep beneath New Zealand could allow scientists to better understand the violent, quick-fire shakes that Kiwis know much better. Tracking what are called slow-slip earthquakes – known to shift faults over days or months without any perceptible shifts in the earth - has only been made possible with recent advances in GPS technology. These events play out when faults grind incredibly slowly against each other, like an earthquake in slow…

Seamounts – are they an important piece of the slow slip puzzle?

As we mentioned in our last blog, Site U1520 sits at the base of Tūranganui Knoll. This is an isolated seamount which rises almost 900 m, from a depth of 3600m to 2740m. It is sitting on the margin…

Antarctic expedition could help scientists uncover secret of melting ice sheets

"It is ocean warming that we think melts the ice sheets, because the oceans can carry a lot more heat than the atmosphere."
