Can a UNICORN Outrun Earthquakes?

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

A UTokyo team transformed its UNICORN code into an AI-like algorithm to more quickly simulate a tectonic plate deformation that leads to earthquakes. The team ran UNICORN at 416 petaflops and gained a 75-fold speedup from a previous state-of-the-art solver using the Summit supercomputer.

Faults' hot streaks and slumps could change earthquake hazard assessments

Geological Society of America (GSA)

Phoenix, Arizona, USA: For more than a century, a guiding principle in seismology has been that earthquakes recur at semi-regular intervals according to a "seismic cycle." In this model,

Many older adults aren’t fully prepared for emergency situations, poll finds

Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan

Most people over age 50 say they’re ready for natural disasters and emergency situations, but a new national poll shows that many haven’t taken key steps to protect their health and well-being in case of severe weather, long-term power outages or other situations.

Science Network Turns Seismic Sensor

Department of Energy, Office of Science

Scientists used distributed acoustic sensing along a 20-mile segment of the Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) Dark Fiber Testbed to record seven months of passive seismic data. Their work showed how unused fiber-optic cable could serve as a highly sensitive earthquake sensor.

Analyzing past earthquakes may be key to predicting future activity

Missouri University of Science and Technology

With the recent earthquakes in early July in southern California, it is more important than ever to be able to accurately predict when and where the next one will occur. A researcher at Missouri S&T is working to do just that by studying past seismic waves produced by earthquakes.
