Fault and aliasing signals in seismic data

Source: Journal of Geophysical Research: Solid Earth The earth’s crust is constantly in motion. As the tectonic plates that make up the lithosphere move, separate, and crash into each other, the crust fractures and bends in response. Faults and folds occur at the fault folds, which are created by the …

Strange ‘eggshell’ exoplanets could have ultra-smooth surfaces

Weird, newly theorized “eggshell planets” may possess ultra-thin outer layers with ultra-smooth surfaces unlike those seen in any world to date, a new study reports. Astronomers may have already detected at least three eggshell planets, the scientists noted. In the past 25 years or so, astronomers have confirmed the existence …
