Water covers about 70 percent of the Earth's surface, but scientists also want to know how much lies inside the planet.

A mineral called brucite may hold part of that answer, according to EOAS Assistant Professor Mainak Mookherjee.

In a paper published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, FSU Assistant Professor of Geology Mainak Mookherjee reports that water exists far deeper in the Earth than scientists previously thought.

EOAS Geology Professor Mainak Mookherjee, explores how feldspar, one of the most important minerals in the Earth's crust, changes under pressure.  Typically, materials become stiffer when pressure is applied, but Dr. Mookherjee found that these pale-colored crystals actually become softer under extreme pressures. A Tallahassee high school student, Dhenu Patel, interned with Mookherjee's lab and contributed to the paper, which is published in Scientific Reports (link below).
