Novel use of standard, single-station seismological techniques can be used to remotely monitor aquifer systems.
New research using a highly complete earthquake catalog shows that 72% of M4+ mainshocks are preceded by foreshocks, implying that foreshock activity is much more prevalent than previously thought.
A new seafloor seismic network detected low-frequency tremor on the subduction zone interface offshore northern Japan, indicating regions of slow slip in close proximity to shallow megathrust events.
Video footage gathered from social media is used to reconstruct the timing and likely source(s) of the tsunami generated by the 2018 Palu earthquake.
New field measurements using terrestrial laser scanning provide a detailed, centimeter-scale image of surface deformation patterns caused by the Magnitude 6.6 earthquake in Norcia, Italy.
Fine-grained layers in sheared fault gouge may be formed by shear-driven size-segregation in granular materials, rather than by shear localization.
