Crowdsourcing Speeds Up Earthquake Monitoring

Data produced by Internet users can help to speed up the detection of earthquakes. An international team of scientists has presented a method to combine in real time data from seismic networks with ... read more

California's Current Earthquake Hiatus Is an Unlikely Pause

There have been no major ground rupturing earthquakes along California's three highest slip rate faults in the past 100 years. A new study concludes that this current 'hiatus' has no ... read more

Using a single seismometer, researchers have shown that seismic waves excited by the surf, together with the effect of the Earth's tides on the subsoil, can be used to better understand the ... read more

Paleontologists have found a fossil site in North Dakota that contains animals and plants killed and buried within an hour of the meteor impact that killed the dinosaurs 66 million years ago. This is ... read more

Seismic Safety Upgrades May Cost CA Hospitals Billions

California hospitals would need to make substantial investments -- between $34 billion and $143 billion statewide -- to meet 2030 state seismic safety standards, according to a new ... read more

Signs of 1906 Earthquake Revealed in Mapping of Offshore Northern San Andreas Fault

A new high-resolution map of a poorly known section of the northern San Andreas Fault reveals signs of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, and may hold some clues as to how the fault could rupture in ... read more

Massive Earthquakes Provide New Insight Into Deep Earth

In a first-ever study of two of the largest deep earthquakes ever recorded in human history, researchers reveal new and surprising information about our planet's mysterious, ever-changing ... read more

The Solid Earth Breathes

The solid Earth breathes as volcanoes ''exhale'' gases like carbon dioxide (CO2) -- which are essential in regulating global climate -- while carbon ultimately from CO2 returns ... read more

As ancient ocean floors plunge over 1,000 km into the Earth's deep interior, they cause hot rock in the lower mantle to flow much more dynamically than previously thought, finds a new study. The ... read more

Scientists argue for more 'synthesis' research looking at the big picture of volcanology to complement myriad research efforts looking at single ... read more

Hundreds of Bubble Streams Link Biology, Seismology Off Washington's Coast

The first survey of methane vent sites off Washington's coast finds 1,778 bubble columns, with most located along a north-south band that is in line with a geologic ... read more

Geophysics: A Surprising, Cascading Earthquake

The Kaikoura earthquake in New Zealand in 2016 caused widespread damage. Researchers have now dissected its mechanisms revealing surprising insights on earthquake physics with the aid of simulations ... read more

How Fluid Viscosity Affects Earthquake Intensity

Scientists have demonstrated that the viscosity of fluids present in faults has a direct effect on the intensity of ... read more

Underwater Surveys in Emerald Bay Reveal the Nature and Activity of Lake Tahoe Faults

Emerald Bay, California, a beautiful location on the southwestern shore of Lake Tahoe, is surrounded by rugged landscape, including rocky cliffs and remnants of mountain glaciers. Scenic as it may ... read more

A New First: Scientists Mimic Nature's Self-Affinity Using Computer Simulations

For the first time, researchers have simulated the process of surface roughness creation. This is a step forward in understanding the emergence of fractal characteristic of rough surfaces on many ... read more

Tectonics in the Tropics Trigger Earth's Ice Ages

Over the last 540 million years, the Earth has weathered three major ice ages -- periods during which global temperatures plummeted, producing extensive ice sheets and glaciers that have stretched ... read more

New Way to Sense Earthquakes Could Help Improve Early Warning Systems

Every year earthquakes worldwide claim hundreds or even thousands of lives. Forewarning allows people to head for safety and a matter of seconds could spell the difference between life and death. ... read more

Machine Learning Expands to Help Predict and Characterize Earthquakes

Researchers describe how they are using machine learning methods to hone predictions of seismic activity, identify earthquake centers, characterize different types of seismic waves and distinguish ... read more

Drilling Results Reveal Global Climate Influence on Basin Waters in Young Rifts

New results from the Gulf of Corinth, Greece, a continental rift zone where the first stage of ocean basin formation is taking place, show how the environmental conditions and sediment input into the ... read more

Coda Waves Reveal Carbon Dioxide Storage Plume

Pumping carbon dioxide into the ground to remove it from the atmosphere is one way to lower greenhouse gases, but keeping track of where that gas is, has been a difficult chore. Now researchers are ... read more
