An exaggerated opening in the earth? (8,7)

I think it may be technology related.

Tectonic Rupture?
Tectonic Opening?
or some mix and match of them and \\\"volcanic\\\"?

No, still not it unfortunately.

I have a theory that Earth means ground. So an answer might be something like ???????? Circuit.

That is a theory however, and is most likely incorrect. This clue is supposed to be cryptic, its not straight forward.

It could be as 'Electric Circuit' I suppose. Seems a bit vague for the clue but I'm thinking 'exaggerated opening' could be the 'c', 'u' and 't' from 'circuit'.
