Aid Workers Should Read Through Archaeologists' Notebooks on Building Houses

Apr. 24, 2015 — Aid workers who provide shelter following natural disasters, such as hurricanes or earthquakes, should consider long-term archaeological information about how locals constructed their homes in the ... read more

Apr. 21, 2015 — A seismology team finds that high volumes of wastewater injection combined with saltwater (brine) extraction from natural gas wells is the most likely cause of earthquakes near Azle, Texas, from late ... read more

Apr. 10, 2015 — Smartphones and other personal electronic devices could, in regions where they are in widespread use, function as early warning systems for large earthquakes according to newly reported research. ... read more

New Research Complicates Seismic Hazard for British Columbia, Alaska Region

Apr. 6, 2015 — The Pacific and North America plate boundary off the coast of British Columbia and southeastern Alaska is a complex system of faults capable of producing very large earthquakes. The recent 2012 Mw ... read more

Apr. 3, 2015 — Seismologists have proven that the Hayward and Calaveras faults are essentially the same system, meaning that a rupture on one could trigger a rupture on the other, producing considerably larger ... read more

Seabed Samples Rewrite Earthquake History Near Istanbul

Mar. 30, 2015 — Cores of marine sediment reveal an earthquake history of the Cinarcik Segment, a main branch of NAF, and suggest a seismic gap where the next earthquake is likely to rupture, as detailed in a new ... read more

Deadly Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Spurred Global Warming, Ozone Loss

Mar. 26, 2015 — Buildings destroyed by the 2011 Tohoku earthquake released thousands of tons of climate-warming and ozone-depleting chemicals into the atmosphere, according to a new ... read more

Mar. 24, 2015 — The soil's physical and chemical properties in rice fields around the Fukushima site have been the focus of recent study. Researchers examined factors affecting soil-to-plant transfer of ... read more

Mar. 23, 2015 — By crushing minerals between diamonds, a new study suggests the existence of an unknown layer inside Earth: part of the lower mantle where the rock gets three times stiffer. The discovery may explain ... read more

Mar. 19, 2015 — Researchers in Japan have jointly developed a robot with four arms and four crawlers which can perform multiple tasks simultaneously to help clean up the rubble left after the 2011 quake-tsunami ... read more

Mar. 16, 2015 — New modeling and analyses of fault geometry in the Earth's crust by geoscientist are advancing knowledge about fault development in regions where one geologic plate slides past or over another, ... read more

Mar. 3, 2015 — Researchers studied quartz from the San Andreas Fault at the microscopic scale, the scale at which earthquake-triggering stresses originate. The results could one day lead to a better understanding ... read more

Feb. 19, 2015 — Engineers have completed one of the most precise evaluations yet done about the impact of a major tsunami event on the Columbia River, what forces are most important in controlling water flow and ... read more

Feb. 11, 2015 — Buildings that rock during an earthquake and return to plumb would withstand seismic shaking better than structural designs commonly used in vulnerable zones of California and elsewhere. A ... read more

Earthquake Activity Linked to Injection Wells May Vary by Region

Feb. 10, 2015 — The Williston Basin in north central US produced fewer earthquakes caused by wastewater injection than in Texas, suggesting the link between seismicity and production activities may vary by region, ... read more

Feb. 9, 2015 — Seismic waves are helping scientists to plumb the world's deepest mystery: the planet's inner core. Thanks to a novel application of earthquake-reading technology, researchers have found ... read more

Feb. 5, 2015 — Natural seepage of methane offshore the Arctic archipelago Svalbard has been occurring periodically for at least 2.7 million years. Major events of methane emissions happened at least twice during ... read more
