Geophysicists and atmospheric scientists partner to track typhoons’ seismic footprints

A remarkable collaboration between atmospheric science and geophysics could change the way we think about storms and seismicity, and could lead to an answer to the often-asked ‘Are hurricanes getting stronger?’ The team has identified the seismic footprint of typhoons and hurricanes, which allows climate scientists to add decades to their dataset of powerful storms.

Analysis of major earthquakes supports stress reduction assumptions

A comprehensive analysis of 101 major earthquakes around the Pacific ring of fire between 1990 and 2016 shows that most of the aftershock activity occurred on the margins of the areas where the faults slipped a lot during the main earthquakes. The findings support the idea that the area of large slip during a major earthquake is unlikely to rupture again for a substantial time.

Earthquakes continue for years after gas field wastewater injection stops, study finds

Shutting down oil and gas wastewater injection wells may not stop human-induced earthquakes quickly, say seismologists. The scientists analyzed earthquakes at DFW Airport that began in 2008 and found that even though wastewater injection was halted after a year, earthquakes continued for at least seven more years. They concluded that high-volume injection, even for a short time, can induce long-lasting seismicity when it’s near a critically stressed fault.

Acoustic imaging reveals hidden features of megathrust fault off Costa Rica

Geophysicists have obtained detailed three-dimensional images of a dangerous megathrust fault west of Costa Rica where two plates of the Earth’s crust collide. The images reveal features of the fault surface, including long grooves or corrugations, that may determine how the fault will slip in an earthquake.

Giant lava dome confirmed in Japan’s Kikai Caldera

Researchers have confirmed that a giant lava dome was created in the Kikai Caldera, south of Japan’s main islands after the caldera-forming supereruption 7,300 years ago. The dome is in the world’s largest class of post-caldera volcano, with a volume of over 32 cubic kilometers. It is possible that currently a giant magma buildup may exist under the Kikai Caldera.

Earthquake simulations of California’s Hayward fault

In the next 30 years, there is a one-in-three chance that California’s Hayward fault will rupture with a 6.7 magnitude or higher earthquake. Scientists have used some of the world’s most powerful supercomputers to model ground shaking for a magnitude 7.0 earthquake on the Hayward fault and show more realistic motions than ever before.

New map profiles induced earthquake risk for West Texas

A map created by geophysicists can help predict which parts of West Texas and New Mexico may be at risk of fracking-induced earthquakes. The map could guide oil discovery efforts in the region.

A one-two punch may have helped deck the dinosaurs

A record of volcanism preserved along ancient mid-ocean ridges provides evidence for heightened worldwide magmatic activity 66 million years ago just after the Chicxulub meteor struck Earth, according to scientists.

Satellite-based earthquake early warning system tested against Chilean great quakes

Researchers testing a satellite-based earthquake early warning system developed for the US West Coast found that the system performed well in a ‘replay’ of three large earthquakes that occurred in Chile between 2010 and 2015.
