A dense seismic network keeps vigil over the western United States, sensing quakes soon after they begin so people nearby can brace themselves. How do wildfires affect these guardians of the West Coast?
Using fiber-optic cables, a new seismic network charts vibrations associated with the Rose Parade’s massive floats and marching bands.
Using satellite images of the lunar surface, scientists find trails left by boulders shaken loose by seismic activity.
A network of “personal seismometers” is intended to complement Haiti’s national seismic network to engage and inform residents about earthquake hazards and preparation.
Newly installed infrasound sensors at a Global Seismographic Network station on Puerto Rico recorded the sounds of Hurricane Maria passing overhead.
Earthquakes: Nucleation, Triggering, Rupture, and Relationships to Aseismic Processes; Cargèse, Corsica, France, 2–6 October 2017
A new approach may fine-tune estimates of the range of shaking from earthquakes and help define areas of potential damage.
5th Workshop on SMART Cable Systems: Latest Developments and Designing the Wet Demonstrator Project; Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 17–18 April 2016
For the past 25 years, power production has been accompanied by a small but steady increase in seismicity near geothermal wells. A new project seeks to explore why.
Last August, stations on a newly deployed permanent ocean floor observation network recorded rarely seen, very low frequency signals from shallow earthquakes.
