Recently discovered speed-of-light prompt elastogravity signals (PEGS) have raised hopes for rapid and reliable estimation of large earthquake magnitude (above M8) to help mitigate the risks associated with strong shaking and tsunamis.
Staggering declines in bird populations are taking place around the world, mainly due to the loss and degradation of natural habitats and direct overexploitation of many species.
A new study published in the journal Communications Earth and Environment found evidence of surprisingly rapid upward movement of the earth’s crust on the island of Taiwan.
When the Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha‘apai volcano in Tonga erupted on January 15, 2022, it sent atmospheric shock waves, sonic booms, and tsunami waves around the world. Now, new research published in Geophysical Research Letters shows the effects of the eruption also reached space, causing a major space weather event.
A co-seismic surface rupture was identified along a 2 km (1.2 miles) long traceable zone after M5.1 earthquake hit North Carolina in 2020 – the largest to hit the state in nearly 100 years. The rupture exposed a previously unknown fault in the earth, representing the first documented surface rupture earthquake in the eastern United States.
Researchers using ground-based telescopes to track Neptune’s atmospheric temperatures over a 17-year period found a surprising drop in the planet’s global temperatures followed by dramatic warming at its south pole.
New research published in Nature this month determined that an intense earthquake swarm at the Bransfield Strait, Antarctica was caused by the rapid transfer of magma from the Earth’s mantle near the crust-mantle boundary to almost the surface.
A new study published this week in Science Advances presents…
New research led by the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) and ICARUS presented seasonal to decadal variations in Northern Hemisphere jet stream latitude and speed over land (Eurasia, North America) and oceanic (North Atlantic, North Pacific) regions for the period…
Scientists have uncovered the source of a mysterious 2021 tsunami that sent waves around the globe in August 2021 when a magnitude 7.5 earthquake hit near the South Sandwich Islands. The epicenter was 47 km (29 miles) below the Earth’s surface — too deep…
