Petrography, zircon U-Pb geochronology and geochemistry of the Ertsberg Pluton, Ertsberg-Grasberg Mining District, Papua, Indonesia
The Ertsberg Pluton is the largest (>15 km³) and youngest (3.1 - 2.8 Ma) igneous body within the renowned Ertsberg-Grasberg Mining District of Papua, Indonesia. It is associated with ore-grade Cu-Au mineralization in the ...
High order stratigraphic framework of intraslope growth faulted subbasins offshore Matagorda Bay, Texas
Carbon capture and storage (CCS) is currently one of the leading atmospheric emission mitigation technologies. To have meaningful impact on the atmosphere CO₂ concentrations, megatons (10⁶) of CO₂ must be removed from the ...
Feasibility of prediction of principal stress from reflection seismic data
Orientations and magnitudes of subsurface principal stresses are crucial information for understanding the structure and tectonic processes inside the Earth. This knowledge is not only important in geotechnical applications ...
Evaluating abnormalities in daily transpiration patterns across tree species in a semi-arid climate
Climate change causes shifts in precipitation, temperature, shifting climate zones and more, thus affecting the ecology and hydrologic feedbacks of many environments, specifically those existing in already warm, arid ...
Reassessing middle and inner ear morphometrics in the estimation of auditory capabilities in reptiles
Hearing, which facilitates the localization of sound and perception of acoustic communication, is directly measurable in living reptiles, but must be indirectly inferred in extinct taxa from morphological proxies. Current ...
Kinematic restoration of the Costa Rican convergent margin : exploring the effects of a rough subducting seafloor
The Costa Rican convergent margin has been a primary site for studies of subduction erosion because it is a documented example of an erosional subduction zone with tectonic erosion by seamount, plateau, and ridge collision. ...
