A pocket-sized device intended for use on the Moon could soon play a key role in Japan’s ambitious plans to sequester carbon dioxide.
A novel use of an existing fiber-optic cable off the coast of Spain has clued scientists in to how seismic noise is generated in the ocean.
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.
