:: Quote of the week ::

"It is a standing vice of geophysics not to argue against unpalatable facts and arguments but simply to ignore them and carry on as if they did not exist."

Prof. Peter Fellgett, FRS, Astronomy & Geophysics, 2003

Dear WM, It is curious that the same tomographic features have been interpreted in completely different ways. Faster than average seismic wave-speeds in the TZ have been considered to indicate ancient subducted slabs (Piromallo & Morelli, 2003; Handy et al., 2010). The same features, on the other hand, have also been interpreted as a volatile-free mantle plume head trapped in the TZ (Lavecchia & Bell, 2012; Bell et al., 2013).– Michele Lustrino


Dear WM, Interesting article in the most recent Economist publicising a Nobel laureate’s jaundiced views on “luxury journals” (Science, Nature and Cell). Seems like the groundswell of discontent is growing.–Andy Moore
