Drilling Vessel Chikyu to Embark on Its Inaugural Scientific Research Expedition
Scientists will begin exploring the origins of earthquakes at their source with the launch of the Nankai Trough Seismogenic Zone Experiment (NanTroSEIZE). On September 21st, the Japanese drilling vessel Chikyu will depart from Shingu Port with scientists aboard, ready to log, drill, sample, and install monitoring instrumentation in one of the most active earthquake zones on Earth. Situated off Japan's southwest coast, the Nankai Trough has generated large-scale earthquakes and tsunamis for millions of years.
The vessel's launch starts the first of a series of scientific drilling expeditions that will retrieve geological samples and provide scientific data from the Nankai Trough fault zone for the first time. One important goal is to eventually place long-term monitoring instruments in the fault zone to aid scientists in understanding what processes occur beneath the sea floor before earthquakes are generated. Such new insights could lead to early warning systems for people on land.
The current NanTroSEIZE expedition is led by Co-Chief Scientist Harold Tobin, a marine geologist on the faculty of University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Co-Chief Scientist Masa Kinoshita, a marine geophysicist at the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology. The NanTroSEIZE expeditions are supported by the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP), an international marine research program led by Japan and the United States, with additional support from a consortium of European countries, the People's Republic of China, and South Korea.

Tibetan tectonics trigger China quake: Geologists
Camera caught quake as it happened May 12, 2008
(CNN) — The death toll from the China earthquake was 12,012 Tuesday night, but was expected to rise as soldiers and rescue crews pulled more bodies from crumbled buildings at the epicenter in Sichuan province.
Authorities said the death toll from Monday's quake might change every hour, as they heard reports from crews frantically working to remove bodies and survivors from the debris, the state-run Xinhua news agency said.
Xinhua reported 26,026 people injured. Thousands were missing, many of them buried, and the tally kept changing.
Tibetan tectonics trigger China quake: Geologists
The violent quake that shook China's Sichuan province is linked to a shift of the Tibetan plateau to the north and east, experts said.
"There will certainly be many aftershocks," commented Paul Tapponnier, an expert on tectonics in the region that is prone to earthquakes.
The quake, with a magnitude of 7.8, struck close to densely populated areas of Sichuan province and was felt across a swathe of southeast Asia.
China's state-run Xinhua news agency quoted local disaster relief officials as saying 3,000 to 5,000 people were estimated to have died in just one district of Sichuan, Beichuan County.
Earthquakes are frequent and deadly along the fringes of the Tibetan Plateau, which was raised when India collided into Eurasia, starting some 50 million years ago.
It is this powerful thrust that created the Himalayas, towering at 8,848 metres with Mount Everest, the highest peak. The mountains continue to reach skyward to this day, propelled by unstable tectonic terrain.
"Tibet is being pushed to the east. It is straddling southern China and locally the Sichuan bassin," said Tapponier.
The quake that emanated in the Longmenshan margins of the Tibetan plateau "has a very complex geology," said Robin Laccassin, director of the tectonics department at the Institute.
"There are many major fault lines... Some are ancient and they probably broke," said Laccassin.
The deadliest earthquake to rock the Tibetan plateau in the 20th century was in 1920 when 230,000 people died in Gansu province. Another quake in Yunnan in the southwest left more than 15,000 dead in 1970.
Two Dutch survivors of the recent K2 avalanche got airlifted to a hospital in Pakistan Monday. One other Italian climber reportedly arrived at basecamp Tuesday and will be airlifted once the weather clears. An ice avalache hit the world’s second highest mountain on Friday after 17 climbers from different international expeditions reached the K2 peak together. The avalanche hit at about 5-miles up in the ‘Dead Zone’, taking down the safety ropes meant for the mountain descent. The death toll is currently marked at 11 people. Many climbers consider the K2 to be a more technically challenging summit than the world’s tallest peak, Mount Everest. This is the deadliest event on K2 since 1985 when 13 of 27 climbers reportedly died after reaching the top of the mountain.
A Los Angeles plot of land reached more than 800-degrees on Friday, causing local firefighters and geologists to survey the 2-acre area north of Fillmore. One theory is that the land is an active landslide that over the past 60-years has trapped particles found in oil products deep in the ground and after the land dried out, oxygen got to the particles and caused combustion. Firefighters got the 800-plus-degree temperature reading after noticing smoke rising through 5-different cracks in the ground. The land is owned by the government and no equipment or buildings exist on it. The ground is now reportedly cooling off and it is not a threat to public safety. This area has recorded extremely high-temperatures several times since 1987.
And there’s another extra fee to fly the blue skies. JetBlue Airways announced Monday that it will start charging for travel pillows and blankets on flights 2-hours and longer. With a 7-dollar price tag for both, the company said this kit is for keeps. The carrier stated that the pillow and blanket fabric was developed by CleanBrands and it’s eco-friendly, meaning that it blocks dust mites, pollen, mold spores, and dander. Also in the kit is a 5-dollar coupon to Bed, Bath & Beyond. This kit is the most recent addition to the a-la-carte menu offered by the company to balance increased fuel prices. JetBlue said last month that it expects to earn about 40-million-dollars this year when flyers dish out extra money for a little extra leg room, plus 20-million-bucks for the 15-dollar-fee for a second checked bag, and the company plans to bring in about 50-million-dollars from ticket-change fees.
Turns out minerals in the ice that's melting off of Antarctica stimulate photosynthesis in plankton in the water, which in turn suck CO2 out of the air, decreasing greenhouse gases and slowing the global warming that melted the ice in the first place. We talk with geologist Rob Raiswell of University of Leeds about the finding.
Here's another one for the "Oops!" file. Macquarie Island was discovered by humans early in the 19th century, and was soon seeing a brisk traffic in sealers who brought more than just hunting supplies to the small island southeast of Australia. The introduction of rats and mice (inadvertently brought to the island on sealers' ships), cats (meant to control the population of rats and mice, of course), and rabbits (tasty victuals for the intrepid sealers) has virtually destroyed the island's ecosystem and caused the population of native seabirds to dwindle. A study conducted by scientists from the Australian Antarctic Division and released earlier this month confirms that the most recent attempts to protect what is left of the natural flora and fauna have actually succeeded in creating conditions under which seabirds continue to die. Arko Lucieer, geologist at the University of Tasmania and co-author of the study, explains the situation to GOOD News.

There are caves and then there are Caverns. Carlsbad is definitely a Caverns class attraction.
There is so much to see and do here that sets New Mexico’s Carlsbad apart from other cave attractions that we couldn’t possibly list everything in one teaser video like this.
Adventurer Clint Pollock delivers the been-there-done-that experience in this short video featuring Ranger Geologist Paul Burger as they explore and expose Carlsbad’s Big Room, the 8 acre sized, stalagmite filled room that is 750 feet below ground, the bat flight of thousands of bats every night and, the 1 ¼ mile main entrance switchback trail that follows the original explorers path as they discovered this underground wonder.
Carlsbad is certainly for everyone with its updated elevator system that accommodates anyone wanting to see its secrets revealed. So, bring a flashlight, leave the baby stroller in the car and follow a self guided tour or hook up with one of the ranger guided tours to explore Carlsbad Caverns.
Carlsbad's uniqueness is exposed in the more and varied formations of its larger caverns.
Trek deeper with Ranger Geologists Paul Burger and Stan Allison as they lead Adventurer Clint Pollock on a special King's Palace Tour uncovering popcorn stalactites, strange angled stalactites and other formations created by the hydrology and geology of Carlsbad's extra large Caverns. There's always something new and exciting around every corner and turn of the path. Flow stones measuring in the hundreds of feet and stalagmites and stalactites that have flowed together to form columns in excess of 65 feet tall.
