Earth is a dynamic body, tectonically active, with gigantic forces pushing and pulling the plates around, piling up mountain ranges and opening ocean basins
What has not been recognized for a very long time is that as those tectonic forces stress the rocks deep in the earth they turn into batteries from which electric currents can flow out and charge the earth’s crust.
It has become increasingly clear that this process – rocks turning into batteries – is crucial to our understanding of the complex signals the earth sends out before major earthquakes.
“Rock batteries” are different, however, from the common electrochemical batteries that come in many shapes and sizes and which are used in everyday life.
When rocks are stressed, something very unique happens that has no equivalent process in…
