New Hints of Volcanism Under the Heart of Northern Europe

Scientists have discovered new evidence for active volcanism next door to some of the most densely populated areas of Europe. The study 'crowd-sourced' GPS monitoring data from antennae ...

Why the Victoria Plate in Africa Rotates

The East African Rift System is a newly forming plate tectonic boundary at which the African continent is being separated into several plates. According to GPS data, one of those, the Victoria ...

Study Shows Diamonds Aren't Forever

Diamonds, those precious, sparkling jewels, are known as the hardest materials on Earth. They are a high-pressure form of carbon and found deep in the ground. While diamonds are commonly thought of ...

Australia's Ancient Geology Controls the Pathways of Modern Earthquakes

New research near Uluru in Australia's arid center shows that rock structures formed deep within the ancient Gondwana supercontinent controlled the rupture pathways of one of Australia's ...

Areas Where Earthquakes Are Less Likely to Occur

Scientists have discovered specific conditions that occur along the ocean floor where two tectonic plates are more likely to slowly creep past one another as opposed to drastically slipping and ...

New Clues to Deep Earthquake Mystery

A new understanding of our planet's deepest earthquakes could help unravel one of the most mysterious geophysical processes on ...

Study Finds a (Much) Earlier Birth Date for Tectonic Plates

Geophysicists reported that Earth's ever-shifting, underground network of tectonic plates was firmly in place more than 4 billion years ago -- at least a billion years earlier than scientists ...

Designing a Flexible Material to Protect Buildings, Military Personnel

Shake, rattle and roll. Even though they are miles from the epicenter of an earthquake, buildings can collapse due to how an earthquake energy makes the ground shake and rattle. Now, a team of ...

Caves Tell Us That Australia's Mountains Are Still Growing

Research shows Buchan Caves to be about 3.5 million years old and that Victoria's East Gippsland has remained tectonically active for long times, even into the present-day, which is why ...

Unknown Submarine Landslides Discovered in Gulf of Mexico

A researcher has used new detection methods to identify 85 previously unknown submarine landslides that occurred in the Gulf of Mexico between 2008 and 2015, leading to questions about the stability ...

New Model to Accurately Date Historic Earthquakes

Three earthquakes in the Monterey Bay Area, occurring in 1838, 1890 and 1906, happened without a doubt on the San Andreas Fault, according to a new ...

'Lettere Patenti' Help Assess Intensity of Historic Central Italian Earthquakes

Three hundred-year-old administrative documents from the Roman government, granting residents permission to repair damage to their buildings, can help modern-day seismologists calculate intensities ...

Growing Mountains or Shifting Ground: What Is Going on in Earth's Inner Core?

Exhaustive seismic data from repeating earthquakes and new data-processing methods have yielded the best evidence yet that the Earth's inner core is rotating - revealing a better understanding ...

Fiber Optics Capture Seismic Signatures of the Rose Parade

Interesting signatures of the Rose Parade were captured by fiber optic telecommunications cable lying below the parade route. Researchers describe how they converted these dark or 'unused' ...

'Wobble' May Precede Some Great Earthquakes

The land masses of Japan shifted from east to west to east again in the months before the strongest earthquake in the country's recorded history, a 2011 magnitude-9 earthquake that killed more ...

Fracking and Earthquake Risk

Earthquakes caused by hydraulic fracturing can damage property and endanger lives. Researchers have developed new guidelines for when to slow or halt fracking operations based on local ...

Fault Roughness and Magnitude of Earthquakes

A new study has found that tectonic plates beneath the Earth's surface can show varying degrees of roughness and could help explain why certain earthquakes are stronger than ...

Seismic Map of North America Reveals Geologic Clues, Earthquake Hazards

A new stress map that reveals the forces acting on the planet's crust will contribute to safer energy exploration, updated seismic hazard maps and improved knowledge about the ...

Tectonic Plates Started Shifting Earlier Than Previously Thought

Scientists examining rocks older than 3 billion years discovered that the Earth's tectonic plates move around today much as they did between 2 and 4 billion years ago. The findings suggest that ...

Holistic Way to Measure the Economic Fallout from Earthquakes

Officials know how to account for deaths, injuries and property damages after the shaking stops, but a study based on a hypothetical 7.2 magnitude quake near San Francisco, describes the first way to ...
