Un terremoto catastrófico en Turquía que sucedió en 1999 cambió el movimiento de la placa de Anatolia, según un estudio que podría modificar los fundamentos de modelamiento de los terremotos.
Research over the past decade in Alaska’s Aleutian Islands has offered surprising insights into the pulses of great earthquakes that generate dangerous, often long-distance tsunamis.
Damage to the Inca buildings of Cusco reveals a forgotten earthquake history that could help scientists understand modern seismic hazards.
Global broadband seismographic networks have provided the science community with 30 years of data which is being used to understand the Earth.
Detailed analysis of sediments covering the Main Frontal Thrust in Nepal show how climate-driven baselevel changes affect sedimentation and should be considered when inferring thrust activity.
Using GRACE satellite data, researchers discovered anomalous gravimetric signals that occurred before a seismic event that started deep within Earth.
Earthquakes as deep as 50 kilometers below the seafloor were detected by 12 ocean bottom seismometers placed around the Challenger Deep.
More accurate aftershock zones reveal that the rupture areas of megathrust Aleutian–Alaska earthquakes are larger than we thought and partly overlap, in contradiction with the seismic gap hypothesis.
When natural hazards strike communities, we may not think science agencies should respond with humor. Researchers suggest that sometimes, however, humor can connect communities and bring smiles.
Using a physical experiment, researchers show how off-fault deformation occurs along strike-slip faults with different types of motion.
