Could electromagnetic fields be used in tsunami early warning? New research shows that important focal parameters of tsunamigenic earthquakes—particularly fault dip direction—can be extracted from tsunami-borne EM fields.
For nearly half a century, thousands trekked to Rose and Prospect streets to behold a slice of sidewalk that, by conventional standards, had no curb appeal.
An array of GPS instruments near the San Andreas Fault System in Southern California detects constant motion of Earth's crust—sometimes large, sudden motion during an earthquake and often subtle, creeping motion. By carefully ...

Southern California's section of the San Andreas Fault is "locked, loaded and ready to roll," a leading earthquake scientist said Wednesday at the National Earthquake Conference in Long Beach.
Rainwater may play an important role in the process that triggers earthquakes, according to new research.
Scientists from Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) at its Earth Observatory of Singapore (EOS) have discovered a way to forecast earthquakes based on slow fault movements caused by moving sub layers of the earth.
