What's new in exploration ///

What is EarthScope? It is one of the most ambitious geoscience projects ever conceived. It is a multi-disciplinary observing system designed to measure how the North American continent is deforming in response to ongoing plate-tectonic forces. It requires leading-edge technology in observational, analytical and telecommunication to investigate the structure and evolution of the North American continent and processes controlling mountain building, earthquakes and volcanic eruptions. EarthScope will provide a foundation for fundamental and applied research that will contribute to mitigation of risks from geological hazards, development of natural resources and understanding of Earth dynamics.
