Dr. Harlow and his team of geologists hiked along riverbeds and steep outcrops, collecting rock samples that might provide clues to the evolution of the Caribbean region. The Caribbean originated 120 million years ago, when areas of volcanic islands and ocean floor squeezed past Mexico and South America. In what's known as the Guatemala suture zone, the boundary between the North American and Caribbean tectonic plates, geologists have found remnants of both a plate collision and a subduction zone, where an oceanic plate plunged into Earth's mantle.

It is arguably a special case in planetary science, the Earth being the only known life-bearing planet. There are both reductionist and holistic approaches to Earth science. There are four major disciplines in earth sciences, namely geography, geology, geophysics and geodesy. These major disciplines use physics, chemistry, biology, chronology and mathematics to build a quantitative understanding of the principal areas or spheres of the Earth system. The following fields of science are generally categorized within the geosciences: - Geology describes the rocky parts of the Earth's crust (or lithosphere) and its historic development. Major subdisciplines are mineralogy and petrology, geochemistry, geomorphology, paleontology, stratigraphy, structural geology, engineering geology and sedimentology. - Geophysics and Geodesy investigate the figure of the Earth, its reaction to forces and its magnetic and gravity fields. Geophysicists explore the Earth's core and mantle as well as the tectonic and seismic activity of the lithosphere. - Soil science covers the outermost layer of the Earth's crust that is subject to soil formation processes (or pedosphere). Major subdisciplines include edaphology and pedology. - Oceanography and hydrology (includes limnology) describe the marine and freshwater domains of the watery parts of the Earth (or hydrosphere). Major subdisciplines include hydrogeology and physical, chemical, and biological oceanography. - Glaciology covers the icy parts of the Earth (or cryosphere). - Atmospheric sciences cover the gaseous parts of the Earth (or atmosphere) between the surface and the exosphere (about 1000 km). Major subdisciplines are meteorology, climatology, atmospheric chemistry and atmospheric physics. - A very important linking sphere is the biosphere, the study of which is biology. The biosphere consists of all forms of life, from single-celled organisms to pine trees to people. The interactions of Earth's other spheres - lithosphere/geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and/or cryosphere and pedosphere - create the conditions that can support life. • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth_science .

Xue Feng was arrested in 2007. He was working for a U.S. based energy consulting firm. The Chinese regime says he violated state secrets laws over the sale of a database on China's oil industry. That database, according to Xue, was public information at the time, and was only classified as state-secrets after he had bought it. Xue was convicted in July this year, and given an eight year sentence. His appeal on Tuesday ended without a judgment. Outside the appeal court, Senior U.S. Embassy official Robert Goldberg said the Chinese regime has not handled Xue's case transparently. Goldberg is calling for Xue's immediate release. [Robert Goldberg, United States Embassy Deputy Chief of Mission]: "We urge the High Court and the Chinese government to ensure fairness and transparency in the process of Dr. Xue's appeal. Dr. Xue has already served over three years in detention. We urge the Chinese to grant Dr. Xue humanitarian release and immediate deportation so that he can return home to the U.S. and reunite with his family." The Chinese regime is known for its vague state secrets laws. Rights activists say it's often used to silence critics of the regime.

Top 10 most amazing discoveries found underwater, recently found was the oldest sea floor ever found by archaeologists. Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr 5. Naia The Skeleton This ancient skeleton is a teenage girl that lived anywhere from 12,000 to 13,000 years ago. It was found in an underwater cave in the Yucatan, Mexico in a cave called Hoyo Negro or the black hole in English. Her skeleton is the oldest complete one that we have in North America. It's been a mystery to scientists why Native American's don't resemble their ancient ancestors and this skeleton, and its DNA may be the answer that they were looking for. Her remains paint an interesting picture because although she has all the genetic markers for present day Native Americans, she has the old features that so puzzled archeologists. Although we still aren't able to trace back what triggered the change in appearance in Native Americans, making the skeleton structure go from the sharp features of ancient people to the soft facial structure of today. 4. Ancient Seafloor We tend to think of the ocean as a massive, immortal, unchanging thing. However, this recent discovery is just another reminder that the Earth as we know it is constantly in a state of flux. In August of 2016, a geologist by the name of Roi Granot discovered what is believed to be a slab of the ancient sea floor. It's been hanging out at the bottom of the Mediterranean Ocean for about 340 million years, making it older than all known seafloors to date. The slab went undiscovered for so long because it's buried under over 8 miles of new sediment. The discovery was made by Roi Granot and his team through the use of magnetics, and it took more than two years to get a full picture. The ocean was a part of the lost Tethys Sea, and the research is important to geologists because it dates the lost sea back further than previously believed, by about 50 million years. 3. Antikythera Skeleton Although this shipwreck is much more famous for giving us the earliest example of a computer that was used to track the Sun and stars, that goes by the name of The Antikythera Mechanism; an overlooked discovery may just be as enlightening as the first. The skeleton was discovered in August of 2016 directly under some sediment on the ocean floor. It dates back 2,100 years, and it includes a skull, two arm bones, two femurs, ribs, and other various smaller bones. The discovery is impressive because finding remains in shipwrecks are rare because they tend to be swept away for taken by fish. Although much was able to be gathered from the wreck with the other artifacts, the skeleton will give anthropologists a chance to study the biology of the people more in-depth. 2. 14,550 Year Old Slaughtered Mastodon Adding more onto the mystery of old American's, the slaughtered remains of a mastodon was found off the coast of Florida. Although there are no human remains found, the cause of death of the old animal hints heavily at first hunting practices. That again dates people existing in the Americas further back than we initially believed, a full 1,500 years. The researchers behind the finding believe that the kill was the result of a Siberian tribe that migrated all the way to the southern US to hunt prey. The site that the skeleton was found the Page-Ladson site is one of the three oldest archeological digs in the New World, and the oldest in the Southeast United States. The tusks of the mastodon were found under 15 feet of sediment along with a stone tool that indicates human technology. This discovery means that people existed alongside some of the more dangerous animals of the ancient world for longer than we initially believed. Go us! 1.Massive Ancient Greek City This discovery was made in 2014 by a team at the University of Geneva off of Lambayanna Beach in Greece. The city was first discovered when the team stumbled across some pottery and investigated further. What they found of an enormous Greek city that dated back as far of 2500 BC. The city stretches across the equivalent of ten football fields, and it includes several buildings, defensive towers, paved streets, and obsidian weapons. Ever since stumbling across the ruins, the team has found a total of 6,000 artifacts and the leader of the team calls it an archaeologist's paradise. The city has several hints at technology that related to metallurgy and smithing because that was one of the main economic forces for the Greeks at that time. The city also had strong fortifications because it is believed that the town also stored trading goods. The city dates back to about the same time as the pyramids of Giza and the predate the first great Greek civilization, Mycenaean by about 1,000 years.

We have remained in regular contact with his family." Xue had negotiated the sale of an oil industry database to his then employer— the Colorado-based consultancy IHS Inc. He says the database was only classified as a state secret after the sale had gone through. Supporters of Xue maintain that he didn't commit a crime—that his actions never warranted a conviction under the Chinese regime's vague state secret laws. [Jon Huntsman, U.S. Ambassador to China]: "We ask the Chinese government to consider an immediate humanitarian release of Xue Feng, thereby allowing him to get back to his family and his way of life. He is a U.S. citizen and we take this case very, very seriously as we have over the last couple of years." Both Huntsman and the Obama administration have repeatedly pushed for Xue's release.

In November 2010, Museum Curator George E. Harlow embarked on a Constantine S. Niarchos Expedition to the Montagua Valley in central Guatemala, a fault zone rich in the precious mineral, jadeite jade. Dr. Harlow and his team of geologists hiked along riverbeds and steep outcrops, collecting rock samples that might provide clues to the evolution of the Caribbean region. The Caribbean originated 120 million years ago, when areas of volcanic islands and ocean floor squeezed past Mexico and South America. In what's known as the Guatemala suture zone, the boundary between the North American and Caribbean tectonic plates, geologists have found remnants of both a plate collision and a subduction zone, where an oceanic plate plunged into Earth's mantle. The high pressures of subduction zones help form minerals like jadeite and its host rock, serpentinite. By following the trail of jade in this region, Dr. Harlow and his team are gaining an understanding of the subduction and collisions that occurred throughout the history of Caribbean plate tectonics. During the expedition, the team studied an ophiolite--a piece of sea floor crust emplaced on top of the continent that had not previously been recorded on geological maps. Back at the Museum, Dr. Harlow's team, including Dr. Kennet Flores, a Davis Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, is conducting geochemical studies of the rock samples gathered during the expedition. Dr. Harlow anticipates that the results will provide insight into the geological puzzle of Guatemala and open windows for research in other parts of the world. George Harlow's Constantine S. Niarchos Expedition was generously supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation. The research described in this video has been supported in part by the National Science Foundation (NSF) under grant numbers EAR0309116 and EAR1119403.
