Study Uses Supercomputers to Advance Dynamic Earthquake Rupture Models

University of California San Diego

Multi-fault earthquakes can span fault systems of tens to hundreds of kilometers, with ruptures propagating from one segment to another. During the last decade, seismologists have observed several cases of this complicated type of earthquake rupture, and are now relying on supercomputers to provide detailed models to better understand the fundamental physical processes that take place during these events, which can have far reaching effects.

Appearance of deep-sea fish does not signal upcoming earthquake in Japan

Seismological Society of America (SSA)

The unusual appearance of deep-sea fish like the oarfish or slender ribbonfish in Japanese shallow waters does not mean that an earthquake is about to occur, according to a new statistical analysis.

Satellite observations improve earthquake monitoring, response

University of Iowa

Researchers at the University of Iowa and the United States Geologic Survey report data gathered by orbiting satellites can yield more information about destructive earthquakes and can improve aid and humanitarian response efforts. The researchers looked at satellite data from several recent, large-magnitude earthquakes.

Dashing the Dream of Ideal ‘Invisibility’ Cloaks for Stress Waves

Georgia Institute of Technology

Some have dreamt of creating the perfect cloak to make buildings impervious to stress waves caused by bombs, earthquakes or other calamities. Sorry, researchers are now dashing the dream. But there's still hope. It is possible to make imperfect, real-world cloaks that will actually do some good.

Aftershocks of 1959 earthquake rocked Yellowstone in 2017-18

University of Utah

A swarm of more than 3,000 small earthquakes in the Maple Creek area (in Yellowstone National Park but outside of the Yellowstone volcano caldera) between June 2017 and March 2018 are, at least in part, aftershocks of the 1959 quake.

Protecting Buildings From Earthquakes

University of Delaware

Externally bonded fiber-reinforced polymer composite retrofits are a promising, relatively inexpensive technology that can strengthen buildings, bridges and other existing structures made of reinforced concrete. Seeing how these retrofits responded to a 7.1 magnitude earthquake can determine their durability and whether they can help in designing more resilient structures.

Study suggests earthquakes are triggered well beyond fluid injection zones

Tufts University

Researchers discovered that the practice of subsurface fluid injection often used in oil and gas exploration could cause significant, rapidly spreading earthquake activity beyond the fluid diffusion zone. The results account for the observation that human-induced earthquake activity often surpasses natural earthquake hotspots.
