July 13, 2016 — To monitor a segment of the North Anatolian seismic fault near Istanbul, an international team of researchers has installed a network of transponders on the floor of the Sea of Marmara. The aim is to ... read more

July 11, 2016 — A huge earthquake may be building beneath Bangladesh, the most densely populated nation on earth. Scientists say they have new evidence of increasing strain there, where two tectonic plates underlie ... read more

Understanding Tsunamis With EM Fields

July 7, 2016 — New research shows that important focal parameters of tsunamigenic earthquakes -- particularly fault dip direction -- can be extracted from tsunami-borne electromagnetic fields. Such details may ... read more

New Study Upends a Theory of How Earth's Mantle Flows

July 6, 2016 — A new study carried out on the floor of Pacific Ocean provides the most detailed view yet of how the earth's mantle flows beneath the ocean's tectonic plates. The findings appear to upend a ... read more

July 6, 2016 — A volcano erupting on a small island in the Sub Antarctic is depositing ash over one of the world's largest penguin colonies. Zavodovski Island is a small island in the South Sandwich ... read more

Fukushima and the Oceans: What Do We Know, Five Years On?

June 30, 2016 — A major international review of the state of the oceans five years after the Fukushima disaster shows that radiation levels are decreasing rapidly except in the harbor area close to the nuclear plant ... read more

Plate Tectonics Without Jerking: Detailed Recordings of Earthquakes on Ultraslow Mid-Ocean Ridges

June 29, 2016 — The earthquake distribution on ultra-slow mid-ocean ridges differs fundamentally from other spreading zones. Water circulating at a depth of up to 15 kilometers leads to the formation of rock that ... read more

June 24, 2016 — Two massive blob-like structures lie deep within the Earth, roughly on opposite sides of the planet. The two structures, each the size of a continent and 100 times taller than Mount Everest, sit on ... read more

June 20, 2016 — By carefully analyzing the data recorded by the EarthScope Plate Boundary Observatory's GPS array researchers discovered nearly 125 mile-wide 'lobes' of uplift and subsidence -- a few ... read more

June 14, 2016 — Researchers are breaking ground on the complexity of earthquakes and the possibility to forecast ... read more

June 13, 2016 — Basalt from a common type of volcano shows a surprising contribution from the descending oceanic plate. Analyses show that magnesium atoms are somehow drawn out of the crust, deep below the ... read more

June 13, 2016 — Scientists have succeeded in theoretically determining the electrical conductivity of NaCl solution (salt water) in a high-temperature and high-pressure environment at ground depths ranging from 10 ... read more

June 13, 2016 — In the days following the April 2015 earthquake in Nepal, afterslip produced little surface evidence of continued movement. That meant only one of two things could be happening: either the part of ... read more

June 10, 2016 — Super-computer modelling of Earth's crust and upper-mantle suggests that ancient geologic events may have left deep 'scars' that can come to life to play a role in earthquakes, ... read more

A Warning System for Tsunamis

May 24, 2016 — Scientists have developed the Time Reverse Imaging Method to take real-time data from the ocean sensors and use that information to recreate what the tsunami looked like when it was born. Once ... read more

May 18, 2016 — New geologic mapping in the Himalayan mountains of Kashmir between Pakistan and India suggests that the region is ripe for a major earthquake that could endanger the lives of as many as a million ... read more
