Understanding earthquakes triggered by wastewater injection

Since 2009, many central U.S. residents have faced increasing earthquake activity. Research has suggested that these tremors are linked to wastewater injection into deep wells by oil and gas companies. However, the precise ...

Earthquake modelers unite to compare and improve code

Movement along faults in Earth's crust can be sudden and jarring, as felt during an earthquake, or it can occur more gradually over thousands of years. Any kind of movement along a fault might affect the stresses and other ...

Testing a machine learning approach to geophysical inversion

A common problem in the geosciences is the need to deduce unseen physical structure based on limited observations. For instance, a ground-penetrating radar observation attempts to infer underground structure without any in ...

Fresh approaches to processing GRACE data

To document large-scale transformations on Earth, such as waning ice sheets and shifting coastlines, geoscientists often use views from space to track mass changes on daily to decadal timescales.

Satellites' lasers reveal changes in Earth's water movement

Understanding climate change and its effects on humans, animals, and natural spaces requires studying Earth as a whole, interconnected system. Water movement on Earth, in particular, is a process that affects everything from ...

Comparing machine learning models for earthquake detection

Machine learning is transforming data-heavy fields across the sciences, and seismology is no exception. Several machine learning methods have emerged for earthquake detection, phase identification, and phase picking. However, ...

Exploration and evaluation of deep-sea mining sites

The seafloor near a mid-ocean ridge is often home to rising hydrothermal fluids from the deep crust that deposit minerals on the ocean bottom. These seafloor massive sulfide deposits offer new sources of copper, zinc, lead, ...
