When geologists went in search for evidence of ancient tsunamis along Southern California’s coastal wetlands, they found something else. Their discoveries have implications for seismic hazard and risk assessment in coastal Southern California.

Fault System Off San Diego, Orange, Los Angeles Counties Could Produce Magnitude 7.3 Quake

WO4T7406-2846762256-O.c.jpg

The Newport-Inglewood and Rose Canyon faults had been considered separate systems but a new study shows that they are actually one continuous fault system running from San Diego Bay to Seal Beach in Orange County, then on land through the Los Angeles basin.

SDSC Achieves Record Performance in Seismic Simulations with Intel

EDGESeismicsoftware02_17.jpg

Researchers at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at the University of California San Diego have developed a new seismic software package with Intel Corporation that has enabled the fastest seismic simulation to-date, as the two organizations collaborate on ways to better predict ground motions to save lives and minimize property damage.

Release of Water Shakes Pacific Plate at Depth

A team of seismologists analyzing the data from 671 earthquakes that occurred between 30 and 280 miles beneath the Earth's surface in the Pacific Plate as it descended into the Tonga Trench were surprised to find a zone of intense earthquake activity in the downgoing slab. The pattern of the activity along the slab provided strong evidence that the earthquakes are sparked by the release of water at depth.

When Superstorm Sandy lashed New Jersey in 2012, Narayan B. Mandayam lost power in his East Brunswick home for five days. Sandy sparked the Rutgers professor’s interest in helping to engineer smart cities, where everything is connected; renewable energy, green infrastructure and sustainability reign; and resilience after breakdowns, disasters and malicious attacks is critical.

A Tectonic Shift in Predicting Earthquakes, Volcanic Hazards

PeridotitePhotomicrograph7TOW-57-4.png

A recent study by the University of Delaware's Jessica Warren and colleagues at two other universities provides a new data set that scientists can use to define a tectonic plate and predict future earthquake and volcanic hazards, where they might occur and how deep the devastation might be.

U-M Researchers Map New Zealand Landslides with Satellites, Drones, Helicopters, Hiking Boots

A University of Michigan-led team of geologists and engineers is mapping surface ruptures and some of the tens of thousands of landslides triggered by last month's magnitude-7.8 earthquake in New Zealand.

Earthquake Faults Are Smarter Than We Usually Think

Northwestern University researchers now have an answer to a vexing age-old question: Why do earthquakes sometimes come in clusters? The research team has developed a new computer model and discovered that earthquake faults are smarter -- in the sense of having better memory -- than seismologists have long assumed.
