Water takes a deep dive into an oceanic tectonic plate

Water takes a deep dive into an oceanic tectonic plate, Published online: 14 November 2018; doi:10.1038/d41586-018-07335-8

A tectonic plate descending into the Mariana Trench carries sea water deep into Earth’s interior. It seems that much more water enters Earth at this location than was thought — with implications for the global water budget.
