“We did not expect to find abrupt changes in physical properties beneath this region,” researcher Vadim Levin said.

Note from Pastor Kevin Lea: This article concludes with the statement, “Now that researchers know the upwelling is there, they hope to find out what’s causing it.” If the reader wants to understand now why this discovery is only one of many that makes conventional plate tectonic dogma untenable, they can do so by going to Dr. Walt Brown’s online book http://www.creationscience.com/onlinebook/HydroplateOverview.html where he scientifically explains how the continental plates came to the position they are now, why they are still moving, why increased volcanic activity and associated earthquakes are in our future (on a global scale), and why there is this observed difference in density (attributed to hot mass in this article) at the crust/mantle barrier on the east coast and many other locations around the earth.

Dec. 1 (UPI) — Deep beneath New England, a giant mass of warm rock is slowly but steadily rising toward the surface. The revelation undermines some of what scientists thought they understand about plate tectonics and the geology of the mantle.
“The upwelling we detected is like a hot air balloon, and we infer that something is rising up through the deeper part of our planet under New England,” researcher Vadim Levin, a geophysicist and professor at Rutgers University-New Brunswick, said in a news release.
Scientists were first alerted to something peculiar after noticing a temperature anomaly deep beneath New England.
The unexpected findings — published this week in the journal Geology — could force scientists to rethink their models of tectonic plate evolution.
