The moment that everyone was waiting for — the big earthquake alert — came shortly after 11 a.m. Monday on a BART train heading from Oakland to Berkeley, and nobody noticed a thing. The train almost imperceptibly slowed from 55 miles per hour to 27 mph halfway between the MacArthur and Downtown Berkeley stations, eliciting hardly a murmur from the assorted politicians and officials gathered for what was supposed to be the momentous unveiling of California’s earthquake warning system, known as...

PALU, Indonesia — Christians flocked to Sunday sermons in the earthquake and tsunami damaged Indonesian city of Palu, seeking answers as the death toll from the twin disasters surpassed 1,700 and officials said they feared more than 5,000 others could be missing. Indonesia’s disaster agency said the number of dead had climbed to 1,763, mostly in Palu. Agency spokesman Sutopo Purwo Nugroho said many more people could be buried, especially in the Palu neighborhoods of Petobo and Balaroa, where...

Earthquakes shake our houses and our nerves. And in the San Francisco Bay Area where multiple geological faults crisscross the region we face a seismic vulnerability that's especially unnerving. That's why the Great American Shakeout 2018 on October 18th, at 10:18 a.m. is an important drill.  But is what you think you know about quakes accurate?

SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — At 5:04 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 17, 1989, a magnitude-6.9 earthquake with an epicenter in the forests above Aptos abruptly ended Central California's long seismic slumber. The Pacific oceanic tectonic plate and North American plate moved in opposite directions along the San Andreas Fault, and for 15 seconds, the Earth's crust shook with fury.

Twenty-nine years ago, the Loma Prieta earthquake rocked the Bay Area, killing 63. Apartment buildings in San Francisco crumbled and burst into flames. The region is due for another major quake — potentially bigger than the 6.9 temblor that struck on Oct. 17, 1989 — with a 72 percent chance in the next 25 years, according to scientists. The Bay Area’s hot economy could hurt rebuilding efforts. Already, North Bay residents trying to restore thousands of single-family homes after last October’s...

A new study could help us understand how our planet was formed. Scientists report that their research shows that Earth's inner core is solid -- a finding made possible by a new method for detecting shear waves, or 'J waves' in the inner core.

Scientists were able to record a sudden outburst of a glacial lake with seismometers deployed the year before in the wake of the catastrophic Ghorka earthquake in April 2015. The authors of a new study argue that such major flood events have a greater impact on erosion rates than the annual monsoon rainfalls. The reason is that the water masses mobilize large boulders and coarse sediment which usually protect the riverbed.

Researchers have applied machine-learning techniques to achieve fast, accurate estimates of local geomagnetic fields using data taken at multiple observation points, potentially allowing detection of changes caused by earthquakes and tsunamis. A deep neural network (DNN) model was developed and trained using existing data; the result is a fast, efficient method for estimating magnetic fields for unprecedentedly early detection of natural disasters. This is vital for developing effective...
