Regulations differ from country to country, but on one point, they’re relatively uniform: Drones must remain within their operators’ line of sight. How do earthquake scientists collect drone data while working within the rules?
Mapping of a 2018 earthquake that ruptured the eastern flank of Mount Etna shows that it occurred on a tectonic lineament that predates the volcano, and the kinematics match nearby tectonic domains.
Unprecedented images of fracture networks in laboratory scale experiments mixed with machine learning algorithms help predict the timing of the next failure.
A new 3D model offers a state-of-the-art look at the full spectrum of slip behaviors in the Nankai subduction zone off Japan.
Long-time series of satellite observation reveal that the creeping segment of the Philippine Fault is also capable of producing strong earthquakes, and show where these earthquakes might occur.
Magnetic studies offer a new strand for the analysis of faulting processes and could help with better understanding of fault rupture and earthquakes.
Videos de Twitter y YouTube ayudaron a los científicos a descubrir los mecanismos físicos que generaron el gran tsunami en Palu Bay después de un terremoto de magnitud 7.5.
Rock sliding experiments on meter scales show groove patterns which are controlled by normal stress. This may help better understand earthquake source conditions from exhumed faults.
Regional strain rate may play as significant a role as temperature in governing the depth distribution of earthquakes in mantle lithosphere.
Fault damage zones can focus fluid transport near faults.
