The East African Rift Valley, a divergent boundary

New geology study raises questions about long-held theories of human evolution What came first: the bipedal human ancestor or the grassland encroaching on the forest? A new analysis of the past 12 million years’ of vegetation change in the cradle...

Atlantic Ocean Floor Map. Groundbreaking map of the ocean floor created by technician Marie Tharp and Professor Bruce Heezen, image via The Earth Institute, Columbia University. Together, Marie and Bruce rewrote 20th century geophysics by creating the first systematic, comprehensive map of the entire ocean floor. This paved the way for general acceptance of the theories of continental drift and plate tectonics.
