Today (24-January-2020) at 05:04 UTC an earthquake took place on the Reykjanes ridge. This earthquake had a magnitude of Mw3,3. This earthquake is as far away as the SIL network can detected earthquake activity in any good way and that might explain why there has not been any record of other earthquakes in this area. … Continue reading "Magnitude Mw3,3 earthquake on the Reykjanes ridge"

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — More than two years ago, Hurricane Maria revealed that Puerto Rico was utterly unprepared for a powerful hurricane despite its location in one of the world’s most storm-vulnerable regions. Now, a flurry of earthquakes topped by a magnitude 6.4 temblor that killed one person and damaged hundreds of buildings has many accusing the government of being caught unready again. “It proved that Puerto Rico is not prepared for a seismic movement,” said Nazario Lugo, president of...

SAN JUAN — More than 2,000 people in shelters. Nearly 1 million without power. Hundreds of thousands without water. The aftermath of a 6.4 magnitude earthquake that killed one person, injured nine others and severely damaged infrastructure in Puerto Rico’s southwest coast is deepening as the island’s government says it is overwhelmed. Many in the affected area are comparing the situation to Hurricane Maria, a Category 4 storm that hit in 2017, as hundreds of families who are unable to return...

Aerospace engineers at Palo Alto firm Stellar Solution Inc. have spent the past 20 years trying to develop an early warning system for earthquakes. But according to a story published in the Los Angeles Times, the company is now pulling the plug on the project — $30 million later.

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — The nation’s government is opening public schools in late January without knowing whether they can withstand a major earthquake as concerns grow about weakened infrastructure that is displacing thousands of students. By Friday, engineers had inspected 561 out of the island’s 856 public schools and found 9% are unsafe as a result of damage caused by a recent 6.4 magnitude quake and strong aftershocks. The inspections, however, are not to determine whether the schools can...

A team of researchers has made an important breakthrough that will help better understand the origin and behavior of slow earthquakes. Their work presents unprecedented evidence that slow earthquakes are related to dynamic fluid processes at the boundary between tectonic plates. These slow earthquakes are quite complex, and many theoretical models of slow earthquakes require the pressure of these fluids to fluctuate during an earthquake cycle.

Researchers used a Global Navigation Satellite System-Acoustic ranging combination technique to detect signals due to slow slip events in the Nankai Trough with seafloor deformations of 5 cm or more and durations on the order of one year. These events generally occurred on the shallow sides of regions with strong interplate coupling and represent variations in interplate friction conditions, which may help simulate the occurrence of megathrust earthquakes originating from this subduction zone...

Engineers have devised a model that can predict the early mechanical behaviors and origins of an earthquake in multiple types of rock. The model provides new insights into unobservable phenomena that take place miles beneath the Earth's surface under incredible pressures and temperatures, and could help researchers better predict earthquakes -- or even, at least theoretically, attempt to stop them.

The Borexino collaboration has presented new results for the measurement of neutrinos originating from the interior of the Earth. With this update, the researchers have now been able to access 53 events -- almost twice as many as in the previous analysis of the data from the Borexino detector, which is located 1,400 meters below the Earth's surface. The results provide an exclusive insight into processes in the earth's interior that remain puzzling to this day.
