Giant earthquakes help predict volcanic eruptions

Researchers at the Institut des Sciences de la Terre (CNRS/Université Joseph Fourier/Université de Savoie/IRD/IFSTTAR) and the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris (CNRS/Université Paris Diderot/IPGP), working in collaboration ...

Extraordinary sensors pushed to their boundaries

Last year, Tobias Kippenberg and his team from the Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements (LPQM1) presented a new-generation sensor capable of detecting very small forces with unprecedented efficiency. These devices, ...

Navigating our way through solar threats (w/ Video)

Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) are now routinely used for high accuracy operations around the globe. But the signals we rely on are vulnerable to ionospheric perturbations – fluctuations in the upper atmosphere ...

Averting worse economic collapses

A new study shows how specific parameters can help us steer clear of tipping points in dynamic systems, such as entire economies.

A global murmur, then unusual silence

In the global aftershock zone that followed the major April 2012 Indian Ocean earthquake, seismologists noticed an unusual pattern. The magnitude (M) 8.6 earthquake, a strike-slip event at intraoceanic tectonic plates, caused ...
