Physicists and geologists are forming a new partnership to study particles from inside the planet.
The Earth is like a hybrid car.
Deep under its surface, it has two major fuel tanks. One is powered by dissipating primordial energy left over from the planet’s formation. The other is powered by the heat that comes from radioactive decay.
We have only a shaky understanding of these heat sources, says William McDonough, a geologist at the University of Maryland.
A team of physicists has experimentally observed how the anisotropic properties of particles deform the Fermi surface in a quantum gas. The work provides the basis for future studies on how the geometry of particle interactions may ...
Physicists have begun looking deep into the Earth to study some of nature's weirdest particles -- neutrinos.
After a series of experiments, geologists have come to a rather startling conclusion. There may be a ocean-sized amount of water far beneath the Earth, trapped inside the high-pressure mantle zone between our planet's liquid metal c...
Geologists have found a vast body of water deep below earth's surface and say it is evidence that oceans came from water inside the planet that seeped to the surface
