UW scientists have made the first-ever accurate determination of a solid-state triple point, the temperature and pressure at which three different solid phases can coexist stably.
Research shows reservoirs of silica-rich magma, which causes the most explosive volcanic eruptions, can persist in Earth’s upper crust for hundreds of thousands of years without erupting.
Earth scientists are laying plans for a two-year study designed to develop a better understanding of how Mount St. Helens gets its supply of volcanic magma.
New ice core research shows that the warming that ended the last ice age in Antarctica began at least 2,000 years earlier than previously thought.
Some epilepsy patients who have both seizures and speech abnormalities share something else in common — mutations on the same gene.
Washington’s governor and state legislators in the last session created a hub at the University of Washington to coordinate research and monitoring of ocean acidification and its effects on local sea life such as oysters, clams and fish.
