Earthquakes off Alaska pose U.S. tsunami risk
Researchers are hoping that by studying sediment on several of the Aleutian Islands will tell them how often tsunamis occur in the region.
Rocks release ozone gas before earthquakes
Lab experiments that crushed rocks that often grind together in earthquakes showed that large amounts of ozone are emitted by the crushing.
‘Mermaids’ are helping to detect earthquakes
Soon the ocean devices will surface only after detecting powerful seismic waves, transmitting their data to satellites before returning to their floating depth.
Here’s a look at why such tremors happen and where the next one might occur.
Do you have an earthquake preparedness plan?
Learn how to prepare for an earthquake, as well as how to respond before, during and after one occurs.
Are we in an age of great earthquakes?
Scientists suggest that the increase in earthquake activity could weaken other fault lines which could lead to more quakes.
