Hopkins doctor/disaster expert says resource problems in Haiti required ethical decision-making
In an essay published in this week's issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association, a Johns Hopkins emergency physician outlines how he and other physicians who worked in Haiti after the earthquake had to make emotionally difficult ethical decisions daily in the face of a crushing wave of patients and inadequate medical resources. View News Article (2010-03-12)

The seismic gap south of Istanbul
The chain of earthquakes along the North Anatolian fault shows a gap south of Istanbul. The expected earthquakes in this region represent an extreme danger for the Turkish megacity. View News Article (2010-01-19)

Experts at Nevada develop technology to increase effectiveness of tsunami warning systems
Scientists at the University of Nevada, Reno are at the forefront on a number of seismological fields, including helping the world better determine whether an earthquake is big enough to generate an ocean-wide tsunami. View News Article (2007-04-03)

Magnitude of quake scales with maturity of fault, suggests new study by German scientist
The oldest sections of transform faults, such as the North Anatolian Fault Zone (NAFZ) and the San Andreas Fault, produce the largest earthquakes, putting important limits on the potential seismic hazard for less mature parts of fault zones. View News Article (2014-04-30)

New Madrid fault system may be shutting down
The New Madrid fault system does not behave as earthquake hazard models assume and may be in the process of shutting down, a new study shows. View News Article (2009-03-16)

Scientists find increase in microearthquakes after Chilean quake
By studying seismographs from the earthquake that hit Chile last February, earth scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology have found a statistically significant increase of microearthquakes in central California in the first few hours after the main shock.  View News Article (2011-02-25)

Post-traumatic stress disorder in a rescue group after the Wenchuan earthquake relief
Previous studies have suggested that the incidence of post-traumatic stress disorder in earthquake rescue workers is relatively high. View News Article (2013-08-15)

Panama Canal, Panama City at risk of large earthquake, says new research
New data suggest that the Limon and Pedro Miguel faults in Central Panama have ruptured both independently and in unison over the past 1400 years, indicating a significant seismic risk for Panama City and the Panama Canal, according to research published today by the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America (BSSA).  View News Article (2010-11-19)

2002 Alaskan quake left 7 areas of California stirred but not shaken
Earth tremors not linked to volcanic activity first turned up in seismic observations several years ago, but those tremors were almost exclusively in subduction zones such as the Cascadia region off the coast of the Pacific Northwest. View News Article (2007-11-26)

Network for tracking earthquakes exposes glacier activity
Alaska's seismic network records thousands of quakes produced by glaciers, capturing valuable data that scientists could use to better understand their behavior, but instead their seismic signals are set aside as oddities. View News Article (2014-05-01)
