33 Pathway from subducting slab to surface for melt and fluids beneath Mount Rainier.

32 Possible control of subduction zone slow-earthquake periodicity by silica enrichment.

31 Uplift and seismicity driven by groundwater depletion in central California.

30 Lithospheric damage, combined with transient mantle flow and migrating proto-subduction, is proposed to explain the apparent emergence of plate tectonics three billion years ago; modelling confirms that tectonic plate boundaries and fully formed tectonic plates can arise under conditions characteristic of Earth but not of Venus.

29 Fossil pollen records indicate that Patagonian desertification was not solely a consequence of Andean uplift.

27 We lack thermal histories for magma reservoirs, but here the magma under Mount Hood (Oregon, USA) is shown to have been too cold to mobilize for most of the time it has been stored, which implies that magma mobilizes (at which point it can be imaged geophysically) very quickly prior to eruption.

26 Gas injection may have triggered earthquakes in the Cogdell oil field, Texas.
