Portable device to sniff out trapped humans

The first step after buildings collapse from an earthquake, bombing or other disaster is to rescue people who could be trapped in the rubble. But finding entrapped humans among the ruins can be challenging. Scientists now report the development of an inexpensive, selective sensor that is light and portable enough for first responders to hold in their hands or for drones to carry on a search for survivors.

Can your dog predict an earthquake? Evidence is shaky, say researchers

For centuries people have claimed that strange behavior by their cats, dogs and even cows can predict an imminent earthquake, but the first rigorous analysis of the phenomenon concludes that there is no strong evidence behind the claim.

Tsunamis could cause beach tourism to lose hundreds of millions of dollars every year

Going to the beach this summer? European tourists are more frequently going to places with significant tsunami risk, researchers have found.

Shaking up megathrust earthquakes with slow slip and fluid drainage

Megathrust earthquakes are the most powerful type of earthquake, occurring at subduction zones — where one tectonic plate is pushed beneath another. By contrast, slow slip events (SSEs) release seismic stress at a lower rate than large earthquakes, re-occurring in cycles. These processes can take place along the megathrust and other planes of weakness in response to loading, releasing low frequency seismic waves. Researchers in Japan consider the fluid drainage processes that can occur from SSEs and their impact on seismic activity.

Water pressure a critical factor for mega-earthquakes

Scientists propose a mechanism that explains how the biggest earthquake ever happened and how more than 50 years later another large earthquake in the same region released some of the stress that had built up in the depth. Water pressure in the underground plays a crucial role in both cases.

Modeling future earthquake and tsunami risk in southwestern Japan

Geoscience researchers unveil new, GPS-based methods for modeling earthquake-induced tsunamis for southwestern Japan along the Nankai Trough. A Nankai-induced tsunami is likely to hit there in the next few decades, and has the potential to displace four times the number of people affected by the massive Tohoku tsunami of 2011, according to new research.

Sediment core from sluice pond contains evidence for 1755 New England earthquake

Signs of a 1755 earthquake that was strong enough to topple steeples and chimneys in Boston can be seen in a sediment core drawn from eastern Massachusetts’ Sluice Pond, according to a new report.

Seismologists introduce new measure of earthquake ruptures

A team of seismologists has developed a new measurement of seismic energy release that can be applied to large earthquakes. It provides a measure of earthquake rupture complexity that better captures variations in the amount and duration of slip along the fault for events that may have similar magnitudes.

Radar images show large swath of Texas oil patch is heaving and sinking at alarming rates

Radar satellite images show a large swath of Texas oil patch is heaving and sinking at alarming rates, according to a geophysical team. Analysis of the images with oil activity data from the Texas Railroad Commission suggests decades of oil activity have destabilized localities of the 4,000-square-mile area, which is populated by small towns, roadways and a vast network of oil and gas pipelines and storage tanks.

Historians to climate researchers: Let’s talk

Ours is not the first society to be confronted by massive environmental change. Over the course of history, some societies have been destroyed by natural disasters, like Pompeii, while others have learned how to accommodate floods, droughts, volcanic eruptions and other natural hazards. The key is how a society plans for and interacts with the stress from nature.
