Satellite images reveal interconnected plumbing system that caused Bali volcano to erupt

The previous eruption of Agung in 1963 killed nearly 2,000 people and was followed by a small eruption at its neighboring volcano, Batur. In September...
New method to determine how safe buildings are after an earthquake

New method to determine how safe buildings are after an earthquake

Civil engineers usually face difficulties while deciding when it’s safe for a building’s residents to move back in after an earthquake. They have to...
In a milestone for earthquake forecasting, researchers report that their physics-based model of California earthquake hazards replicated estimates from the state’s leading statistical model. In the above radar image, a section of California’s San Andreas fault can be seen below the Crystal Springs Reservoir (in black), with San Francisco (in pink) to the east.

A milestone for forecasting earthquake hazards

Analysts from Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, University of Southern California, the University of California at Riverside and the U.S. Geological Survey has concocted...
Using machine-learning tools to analyze 46,000 earthquakes at The Geysers geothermal field in California, researchers discovered patterns that correspond to water-injection flows, suggesting a link to the mechanical processes that produce earthquakes. (Photo credit: Stepheng3)

Using Machine learning tools to gain new insights from Earthquake data

Scientists at the Columbia University have discovered a totally new way to study earthquakes. They picked out different types of earthquakes from three years using...
