The b-value, which describes the fraction of large versus small earthquakes, is less sensitive to transient changes in detection threshold and may improve the detection of precursory changes.
A dense seismic network in operation since 2019 will provide new insights into the tectonics of seismically active Himalayan regions.
The first seismic data obtained directly from the Mid-Atlantic Ridge suggest that upwelling may contribute to seafloor spreading.
Seismic velocity patterns beneath the Deccan Traps region in western India reveal its volcanic history.
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.
Researchers are engaging their students with low-cost seismology research to monitor local noise on campus.
The model, which will incorporate 227 million surface wave measurements, could help with everything from earthquake characterization to neutrino geosciences.
For some educators, restrictions imposed by COVID-19 created space for innovation and affirmed the value of online tools and learning environments for increasing access to and engagement with science.
An ambassador for African geosciences and for Ethiopia, this celebrated geophysicist will be remembered for his contributions in research as well as his steadfast support of colleagues.
Precise measurements of the Earth’s vertical surface motion help to elucidate the hazards of faults in an earthquake-prone region.
