"New research confirms that the Earth's core does in fact contain vast amounts of sulphur, estimated to be up to 8.5 x 1018 tonnes. This is about 10 times the amount of sulphur in the rest of the Earth, based on the most recent estimates (and for comparison, around 10% of the total mass of the Moon)."

So perhaps there is some truth in the old legends of the underworld reeking of brimstone (or sulphur, as it is now called)? New research confirms that the Earth's core does in fact contain vast amounts of sulphur, estimated to be up to 8.5 x 1018 tonnes. This is about 10 times the amount of sulphur ...

For generations, Bedouin nomads living in the Egyptian coastal resort Abu Dabbab by the Red Sea have heard noises like the rumbling of a distant quarry blast or cannon shot accompanying small quakes in the area. And now researchers know why.

Story
Tagline
EarthScope is a collection of science experiments aimed at exploring the structure and evolution of the North American continent.
Introduction

EarthScope is a vast project for deep geoscientific exploration of the entire North American continent (as well as the entire Earth), to better understand the materials it is made of, how it was assembled, and how it works—including its recurring earthquakes and active volcanoes. EarthScope scientists use state-of-the-art instruments and methods to collect data from seismic waves, crustal movements, Earth's magnetic field, rock and soil samples, and images obtained from aircraft and satellites. Their analyses of these diverse sets of data are complemented with innovative laboratory experiments and theoretical modeling. EarthScope research is producing transformative knowledge that helps us better explain geological phenomena, protect ourselves against natural hazards, and locate necessary resources.
Bragging rights
The National Science Foundation (NSF) funds EarthScope. EarthScope is being constructed, operated, and maintained in alliance with UNAVCO, and the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS), and is conducted in partnership with the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Several international organizations also contribute to the initiative.
