      Puzzling features of western Mediterranean tectonics explained by slab dragging, Published online: 19 February 2018; doi:10.1038/s41561-018-0066-z

      Complex patterns of crustal deformation in the western Mediterranean region may be attributable to movements of the African Plate that drag the subducted Gibraltar slab through the mantle, according to numerical simulations.Puzzling features of western Mediterranean tectonics explained by slab dragging, Published online: 2018-02-19; doi:10.1038/s41561-018-0066-z2018-02-19

      Modification of the Western Gondwana craton by plume–lithosphere interaction, Published online: 19 February 2018; doi:10.1038/s41561-018-0064-1

      South American and African cratons may have been substantially modified by mantle plumes, according to analyses of seismic images and tectonic records. The results imply that cratons may not be as stable as once thought.Modification of the Western Gondwana craton by plume–lithosphere interaction, Published online: 2018-02-19; doi:10.1038/s41561-018-0064-12018-02-19

      When plumes tickle continents, Published online: 19 February 2018; doi:10.1038/s41561-018-0074-z

      Continental stability may be linked to a shallow, buoyant mantle layer, and the deepest craton roots can be destabilized and removed by mantle plumes.When plumes tickle continents, Published online: 2018-02-19; doi:10.1038/s41561-018-0074-z2018-02-19

      Corrugated megathrust revealed offshore from Costa Rica, Published online: 12 February 2018; doi:10.1038/s41561-018-0061-4

      Mature parts of the shallow megathrust beneath Costa Rica are characterized by striking corrugations that may channel fluids, according to seismic images. Nascent sections of the subduction zone plate boundary appear only weakly corrugated.Corrugated megathrust revealed offshore from Costa Rica, Published online: 2018-02-12; doi:10.1038/s41561-018-0061-42018-02-12

      The East Antarctic ice sheet may be gaining mass in the current, warming climate. The palaeoclimate record shows, however, that it has retreated during previous episodes of prolonged warmth.A history of instability, Published online: 2018-01-30; doi:10.1038/s41561-018-0068-x2018-01-30
