Using a single seismometer, researchers have shown that seismic waves excited by the surf, together with the effect of the Earth's tides on the subsoil, can be used to better understand the properties of the Earth without having to drill into the ground. Knowledge of subsurface stress or strain fluctuations is important for safety in construction and mining, and monitoring geological processes in volcanoes and fault zones, for example.

Data produced by Internet users can help to speed up the detection of earthquakes. An international team of scientists has presented a method to combine in real time data from seismic networks with information derived from users looking for earthquake information on specific websites, the smartphone app 'LastQuake' and via Twitter. This method significantly reduces the time needed to detect and locate those earthquakes that are felt by the public.
