Geologists Are Using Artificial Intelligence to Predict Landslides

Many factors influence where a landslide will occur, including the shape of the terrain, its slope and drainage areas, the material properties of soil and bedrock, and environmental conditions like climate, rainfall, hydrology and ground motion resulting from earthquakes. Geologists have developed ...

Research Reveals Sources of CO2 from Aleutian-Alaska Arc Volcanoes

Scientists have wondered what happens to the organic and inorganic carbon that Earth's Pacific Plate carries with it as it slides into the planet's interior along the volcano-studded Ring of Fire. A new study suggests a notable amount of such subducted carbon returns to the atmosphere rather than ...

Multiscale Rupture Growth Driven by a Complex Fault Network During the 2023 Türkiye and Syria Earthquake Doublet

Researchers analyzed the source processes of the twin earthquakes that caused extensive damage in Türkiye and Syria on February 6, 2023. The results revealed that a complex fault network with bends, steps, and branches controlled the propagation ...

When Soft Spheres Make Porous Media Stiffer

Porous media such as concrete physically represent a spherical packing of different components -- in this case cement, rock and water. The mechanical properties of such mixtures are still difficult to calculate due to their discretized nature. A team has now been able to investigate an unexpected ...

Puerto Rico Tsunami Deposit Could Have Come from Pre-Columbian Megathrust Earthquake

Tsunami deposits identified in a coastal mangrove pond in Northwest Puerto Rico could have come from a megathrust earthquake at the Puerto Rico Trench that occurred between 1470 and 1530, according ...

Turkey's Next Quake: Research Shows Where, How Bad -- But Not 'When'

Using remote sensing, geophysicists have documented the massive Feb. 6 quake that killed more than 50,000 people in Eastern Turkey and toppled more than 100,000 buildings. Alarmingly, researchers ...

New USGS-FEMA Report Updates Economic Risk from Earthquakes

Plate Tectonic Processes in the Pacific and Atlantic During the Cretaceous Period Have Shaped the Caribbean Region to This Day

Earthquakes and volcanism occur as a result of plate tectonics. The movement of tectonic plates themselves is largely driven by the process known as subduction. The question of how new active ...

Warm Liquid Spewing from Oregon Seafloor Comes from Cascadia Fault, Could Offer Clues to Earthquake Hazards

Oceanographers discovered warm, chemically distinct liquid shooting up from the seafloor about 50 miles off Newport. They named the unique underwater spring 'Pythia's Oasis.' ...

Was Plate Tectonics Occurring When Life First Formed on Earth?

Researchers used small zircon crystals to unlock information about magmas and plate tectonic activity in early Earth. The research provides chemical evidence that plate tectonics was most likely ...

Messages About the 'Felt Intensity' of Earthquakes Via App Can Potentially Assist Early Disaster Management

After an earthquake, it is crucial in the early phase of disaster management to obtain a rapid assessment of the severity of the impact on the affected population in order to be able to initiate ...

Earthquake Scientists Have a New Tool in the Race to Find the Next Big One

New research on friction between faults could aid in predicting the world's most powerful earthquakes. Researchers discovered that fault surfaces bond together, or heal, after an earthquake. A ...

Exact Magma Locations May Improve Volcanic Eruption Forecasts

Cornell University researchers have unearthed precise, microscopic clues to where magma is stored, offering a way to better assess the risk of volcanic ...


Scientists Detect Molten Rock Layer Hidden Under Earth's Tectonic Plates

Scientists have discovered a new layer of partly molten rock under the Earth's crust that might help settle a long-standing debate about how tectonic plates move. The molten layer is located ...

Looking Back at the Tonga Eruption

A 'back-projection' technique reveals new details of the volcanic eruption in Tonga that literally shook the ...

Researchers Uncover Secrets on How Alaska's Denali Fault Formed

New findings begin to fill major gaps in understanding about how geological faults behave and appear as they deepen, and they could eventually help lead future researchers to develop better ...

The Adverse Health Effects of Disaster-Related Trauma

A new study has found that individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds are more likely to experience disaster-related home loss, and they are also more likely to develop functional limitations ...

Hawai'i Earthquake Swarm Caused by Magma Moving Through 'Sills'
