Fukushima at increased earthquake risk
Seismic risk at the Fukushima nuclear plant increased after the magnitude 9 earthquake that hit Japan last March, scientists report. View News Article (2012-02-14)

New findings indicate sediment composition affected the strength of Sumatran earthquake
Sumatra experiences frequent seismic activity because it is located near the boundary of two of Earth's tectonic plates. Earthquakes occur at 'subduction zones,' such as the one west of Indonesia, when one tectonic plate is forced under another--or subducts. View News Article (2010-07-09)

3-D laser map shows earthquake before and after
Geologists have a new tool to study how earthquakes change the landscape down to a few inches, and it's giving them insight into how earthquake faults behave. View News Article (2012-02-10)

Discovery sheds new light on cause of earthquakes
Research at the University of Liverpool into a large fault zone in the Atacama Desert in northern Chile has produced new insight into how fluid pressure can cause earthquakes. View News Article (2006-12-14)

To a Fault: The Bottom Line on Earthquakes
Although many people think that California "owns" all the earthquakes, Ohio also has its share of faults. Unlike another earthquake that woke people on another April 18, 102 years ago, this quake was fairly mild. View News Article (2008-04-23)

Large Himalaya earthquakes may occur sooner than expected
While the rupture zones of recent major earthquakes are immune to similar-sized earthquakes for hundreds of years, they could be vulnerable to even bigger destructive temblors sooner than scientists suspect. View News Article (2005-12-08)

OU geophysics group teams with China on seismic projects
University of Oklahoma researchers are working with Chinese colleagues to better understand intraplate earthquakes-those occurring far from a tectonic plate boundary-in an effort to minimize the loss of life and property in both China and Oklahoma. View News Article (2010-04-13)

Istanbul -- The earthquake risk of a megacity
Today the drilling starts for a seismic monitoring network on the Marmara Sea near Istanbul. View News Article (2012-09-10)

Unusual earthquake gave Japan tsunami extra punch, say Stanford scientists
The magnitude 9 earthquake and resulting tsunami that struck Japan on March 11 were like a one-two punch - first violently shaking, then swamping the islands - causing tens of thousands of deaths and hundreds of billions of dollars in damage.  View News Article (2011-05-25)
