A partially molten mantle

Nature Geoscience, Published online: 06 February 2023; doi:10.1038/s41561-022-01120-zA global analysis of seismic waves has identified a widespread sharp velocity anomaly at the base of the low seismic velocity zone that is consistent with partial melting, closing a decades-long debate about the origin of this zone.

Asthenospheric low-velocity zone consistent with globally prevalent partial melting

Nature Geoscience, Published online: 06 February 2023; doi:10.1038/s41561-022-01116-9A partially molten low-seismic-velocity zone in the asthenosphere is globally prevalent, but partial melting is not the primary control of low asthenospheric viscosity, according to analysis of seismic waves travelling through the mantle.

Shifts in vegetation activity of terrestrial ecosystems attributable to climate trends

Nature Geoscience, Published online: 06 February 2023; doi:10.1038/s41561-022-01114-xAn analysis fusing satellite data with a process-based model of plant growth attributes changes in vegetation activity across terrestrial ecosystems to climatic changes.

Coupling and interactions across the Martian whole atmosphere system

Nature Geoscience, Published online: 02 February 2023; doi:10.1038/s41561-022-01118-7Spacecraft observations and climate modelling have revealed how atmospheric waves, dust storms and atmospheric loss processes are coupled throughout the atmosphere of Mars.

Author Correction: Multidecadal variation of the Earth’s inner-core rotation

Nature Geoscience, Published online: 31 January 2023; doi:10.1038/s41561-023-01136-zAuthor Correction: Multidecadal variation of the Earth’s inner-core rotation

Increased night-time oxidation over China despite widespread decrease across the globe

Nature Geoscience, Published online: 26 January 2023; doi:10.1038/s41561-022-01122-xMeasurements show that night-time production of atmospheric nitrate radicals increased in China but decreased in the European Union and the United States from 2014 to 2019. This suggests the increasing contribution of night-time atmospheric oxidation in China to air...

Formation of necromass-derived soil organic carbon determined by microbial death pathways

Nature Geoscience, Published online: 25 January 2023; doi:10.1038/s41561-022-01100-3Microbial death pathways affect the quantity and composition of microbial necromass and its associated soil organic carbon.

Rotation of the Earth’s inner core changes over decades and has come to near-halt

Nature Geoscience, Published online: 23 January 2023; doi:10.1038/s41561-022-01113-ySeismic observations reveal that the Earth’s inner core oscillates with a period of approximately seven decades. The multidecadal periodicity coincides with that of several other geophysical observations, particularly the variations in the length of day and the Earth’s...

Multidecadal variation of the Earth’s inner-core rotation

Nature Geoscience, Published online: 23 January 2023; doi:10.1038/s41561-022-01112-zMultidecadal oscillation of the Earth’s inner core, coinciding with length of day and magnetic field variations, is experiencing a pause and reversing, according to analysis of repeating seismic waves traversing the inner core since the 1960s.

Geology for the wellbeing economy

Nature Geoscience, Published online: 23 January 2023; doi:10.1038/s41561-022-01110-1The recent emergence of a new economic model that is focused on the pursuit of human and ecological wellbeing — the wellbeing economy — offers a fresh framework for geology to contribute to society. The challenge will be to extend the social purpose of geology beyond...
