Study reveals seismic shift in methods used to track earthquakes
The team, led by scientists from the University of Edinburgh, says that the new method, which uses data collected from earthquakes, potentially allows the Earth's seismic activity to be mapped more comprehensively. View News Article (2009-09-02)

Scientists find evidence that structural damage to the Alhambra is due to seismic activity
The Granada Basin, home to the Alhambra, is located in one of the most seismically active zones in the Iberian Peninsula. Historical evidence shows that the last major earthquake occurred there in 1431. New evidence indicates, however, that the topographical features of the area surrounding the Alhambra reflect recent and recurrent, though moderate, seismic activity. The research is published...

Homing in on a potential pre-quake signal
Changes in seismic velocity--changes in the speeds at which seismic waves move through the Earth's crust--have been identified during and after many earthquakes. View News Article (2012-08-03)

Major population centers may be at risk; building codes must reflect new seismic data
Earthquakes in stable continental regions lack sufficient understanding to prepare local populations for future seismic activity, according to a paper published in the February issue of the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America (BSSA). View News Article (2007-02-08)

Deadly mine 'bump' was recorded as seismic event
The University of Utah Seismograph Stations recorded a magnitude-1.6 seismic event at the time of a Thursday, Aug. 16 "bump" that killed and injured rescuers at a Utah coal mine where six miners were trapped by an Aug. 6 collapse. View News Article (2007-08-20)

EARTH: Well-healed faults produce high-frequency earthquake waves
Much like our voices create sound waves with a variety of low and high pitches, or frequencies, earthquakes produce seismic waves over a broad spectrum. View News Article (2013-03-11)

Scientists detect seismic signals from tornado
An Indiana University geophysical experiment detected unusual seismic signals associated with tornadoes that struck regions across the Midwest last week -- information that may have value for meteorologists studying the atmospheric activity that precedes tornado disasters. View News Article (2012-03-08)

No Redoubt: Volcanic eruption forecasting improved
Forecasting volcanic eruptions with success is heavily dependent on recognizing well-established patterns of pre-eruption unrest in the monitoring data. View News Article (2013-04-30)

City of Ottawa sits atop soil, geologic features that amplify seismic waves
Engineers and city planners study surface geology in order to construct buildings that can respond safely to earthquakes. View News Article (2012-10-03)

Earthquakes Happen at Full Moon
Russian physicists have found that flashes of neutron radiation from the Earth surface are bound to increasing in seismic activity. They believe that this phenomenon can be used as a novel kind of earthquake foreboding. The researchers of the Department of Cosmic Radiation of the Research Institute of Nuclear Physics at Moscow State University have noticed that at new moon and full moon periods...
