Abstract

This note serves as a warning that a recently mutated virus, deviatoric stressitis, has infected many in the Earth science community. The good news is that this virus, nicknamed deveitis (dee vee' i‐tis), is not lethal and its victims can hope for a complete recovery. The bad news is that deveitis has spread like wildfire and leads to great confusion about Earth stress in papers, abstracts, and discussions by any of its victims. Deveitis is easy to recognize. The most common symptom is the use of the term, deviatoric stress, in papers, abstracts, and discussions.
