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)

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)
