Yellowstone magma discovery

Thu, 04/23/2015 - 02:00

A team of University of Utah seismologists has discovered a reservoir of hot, partly molten rock hidden 12 to 28 miles beneath Yellowstone's supervolcano--enough to fill the 1000 cubic-mile-Grand Canyon more than 11 times. The pool is over four times larger than a shallower, long-known magma chamber.

The National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded team, developed a new technique that uses both local and distant earthquake data from the University of Utah Seismograph Stations and the ...

Smaller and cheaper particle accelerators?

Tue, 04/21/2015 - 02:28

Traditionally, particle accelerators have relied on electric fields generated by radio waves to drive electrons and other particles close to the speed of light. But in radio-frequency machines there is an upper limit on the electric field before the walls of the accelerator "break down," causing it to not perform properly, and leading to equipment damage.

In recent years, however, scientists experimenting with so-called "plasma wakefields" have found that accelerating electrons on ...
