Fiber-optic cables can provide a wealth of detailed data on subsurface vibrations from a wide range of sources. Machine learning offers a means to make sense of it all.
Applying new technology rooted in quantum mechanics and relativity to terrestrial and space geodesy will sharpen our understanding of how the planet responds to natural and human-induced changes.
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.
Documents suggest that in more than 80 U.S. locations, the failure of an aging dam could flood a major toxic waste site.
Infrastructure projects like roads and dams destabilize slopes and compound the effects of glacial floods and avalanches, scientists say.
Researchers mined maps of natural hazards and land use to show that nearly 60% of structures are built in regions at high risk of earthquakes, wildfires, floods, hurricanes, and/or tornadoes.
Nationwide, civil engineers consider precipitation values from NOAA to design their structures. But those values are missing another contributor to flood risk: snowmelt.
Research into past seismic activity shows northeast Israel is still vulnerable to large quakes.
El programa de Sismología en la Escuela en Nepal, tiene como objetivo preparar a las comunidades rurales para el próximo gran terremoto.
An investigation of small-scale spatial variability in earthquake ground motions helps to quantify the uncertainty of ground motions in probabilistic seismic hazard analysis.
