The ground shook. The city burned. Hundreds died. San Francisco, however, rose from the ashes, rebuilt and became a greater city, a shining symbol of the West. The anniversary of the great quake of 1906 provides a time to reflect on the unfathomable devastation and the rebirth of a metropolis. This year, a trip to The Chronicle’s archive led to the rediscovery of photos taken amid ruins as flames still burned in the city, with many of the images never...

Very shortly after the earth rumbled and the fires raged on April 18, 1906, thousands flocked to San Francisco to document unimaginable destruction. A vast portion of the city lay in utter ruin. Due to the enormity of the event and its aftermath, there is much documentation depicting the horror that reigned. But, like a mourned death, soon people went back to where they came from, leaving San Francisco citizens to pick up the pieces.

The first step after buildings collapse from an earthquake, bombing or other disaster is to rescue people who could be trapped in the rubble. But finding entrapped humans among the ruins can be challenging. Scientists now report the development of an inexpensive, selective sensor that is light and portable enough for first responders to hold in their hands or for drones to carry on a search for survivors.

Scientists propose a mechanism that explains how the biggest earthquake ever happened and how more than 50 years later another large earthquake in the same region released some of the stress that had built up in the depth. Water pressure in the underground plays a crucial role in both cases.

Megathrust earthquakes are the most powerful type of earthquake, occurring at subduction zones -- where one tectonic plate is pushed beneath another. By contrast, slow slip events (SSEs) release seismic stress at a lower rate than large earthquakes, re-occurring in cycles. These processes can take place along the megathrust and other planes of weakness in response to loading, releasing low frequency seismic waves. Researchers in Japan consider the fluid drainage processes that can occur from...
