Scientists from the University of Iceland, the Icelandic Met Office and their colleagues have published two papers in the latest issue of Nature presenting new findings from the 2021 eruption at Fagradalsfjall – the first eruption on the Reykjanes Peninsula after 800 years of dormancy.
A new study published recently in Remote Sensing proposes the implementation of machine learning support vector machine (SVM) technique, applied with GPS ionospheric total electron content (TEC) pre-processed time series estimations, to evaluate potential precursors caused by earthquakes.
A project investigating the effect of solar storms on railway signals, presented this week at the National Astronomy Meeting (NAM 2022) by Cameron Patterson, a PhD student at Lancaster University, shows how fluctuations in space weather are disrupting train signals and causing significant delays.
A new study published in Nature provides new insights into the triggering mechanisms and propagation dynamics of the enigmatic 1693 tsunami in the eastern Mediterranean Sea.
A new study published in AGU’s JGR Solid Earth combined the petrological and geochemical data collected in recent decades at Campi Flegrei with numerical simulations, and placed new constraints on the source(s) of the current dynamics of the volcano. The study helps in defining the best monitoring strategies and forecasting a future eruption.
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.
