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.
The project exploring seismic noise during the coronavirus pandemic was fueled by Google searches and bathroom soldering sessions.
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?
Fiber-optic cables measured a 50% decline in Sand Hill Road traffic in March.
Using fiber-optic cables, a new seismic network charts vibrations associated with the Rose Parade’s massive floats and marching bands.
A team of researchers has used low-cost devices to record footsteps and vocalizations from African elephants in the field.
Using satellite images of the lunar surface, scientists find trails left by boulders shaken loose by seismic activity.
Applying machine learning to subtle acoustic signals from an earthquake machine has revealed big clues about fault behavior in the lab.
A series of controlled chemical detonations in the Nevada desert is helping researchers discern between ground shaking caused by nuclear explosions and earthquakes.
Ground motion caused by gusts of wind can drown out signals from the smallest earthquakes, potentially confusing earthquake detection algorithms.
