A new method uses Bayesian inference to jointly invert for non-planar fault geometry and spatially variable slip (with associated uncertainties) in earthquake source modeling, based on geodetic data.
A new special collection in JGR: Solid Earth and Earth and Space Science seeks papers from across disciplines that provide insights into induced seismicity at different spatial and temporal scales.
Why does low-frequency energy come from the shallow part of ruptures, and the high frequencies from deep?
Internet cables can be transformed into a string of dense seismic sensors, and this approach has now been shown to be highly useful for quickly monitoring seismicity after major earthquakes.
Analysis of California earthquakes solidifies links between shaking due to remote earthquakes and increased local earthquake activity that persists for times longer than for regular aftershocks.
High quality data from Japan provides answers on where and when “enervated” earthquakes occur.
Waveform‐based location methods are being used to better characterize and understand seismic sources from the laboratory to the global scale.
Twenty-five years’ worth of data allows scientists to suss out subtle signals deep in subduction zones.
Puerto Rico no había visto tantos sismos fuertes en una sola secuencia desde que comenzó el monitoreo sísmico hace 46 años. El último terremoto que dañó la isla gravemente ocurrió en 1918.
Puerto Rico hasn’t seen this many strong quakes in a single sequence since seismic monitoring began 46 years ago. The last earthquake to damage the island this badly occurred in 1918.
