Researchers have figured out how rumbling thunder turns to seismic waves and how this shaking could be used to reveal subsurface geology.
New findings show that underwater mountains may increase friction along subduction zones, building up stress and making larger ruptures more likely.
New findings suggest that unlike in Earth, the bottom of Mars’s mantle is a sea of molten silicate rock.
A new analysis of the seismic data gathered by the InSight lander reveals that marsquakes occur across a much larger area of the planet than previously believed.
A new seismic study shows that magmatism along the eastern North American rift margin was segmented, and that rift discontinuities influence formation of fracture zones along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.
A new study investigates the dynamics of the complex continental collision that formed the European Alps and reveals how structural alignments change with depth.
Tidally induced seismicity increased locally before the 2019 Ridgecrest earthquake, suggesting that fault sensitivity to stress increases in the years immediately before large earthquakes.
A new method for examining the tiny vibrations of Earth caused by ocean swells could help reveal details of deep-Earth structure.
Bedload sediment, transported throughout an alpine catchment by a flood, was remotely tracked in detail by analyzing the ground vibrations recorded by a network of 24 seismic sensors.
Inter-source correlograms yield coherent signals upon careful consideration of source mechanisms and source-receiver geometry, affording new means of characterizing planetary interiors.
