'Anti-plume' found off Pacific Coast

...hers think the seafloor spreading caused the ocean crust to dilate, increasing the pore space much like a sponge. "It's like an anti-plume," he said. "Instead of sending materials from within the Earth to the ocean floor, it simply sucks down the surrounding seawater." The researchers aren't sure exactly ...

Continents played key role in collapse and regeneration of Earth's early greenhouse, geologists say

...diments. Over time, great slabs of oceanic crust were pulled down, or subducted, into the Earth's mantle. The carbon that was locked into this crust was essentially lost, tied up for the 60 million years or so that it took the minerals to get recycl...
