The volume of hydraulic fracturing fluid and the location of well pads control the frequency and occurrence of measurable earthquakes, new Alberta Geological Survey...

Rates of great earthquakes not affected by moon phases, day of...

There is an enduring myth that large earthquakes tend to happen during certain phases of the Moon or at certain times during the year....

Earthquakes as a driver for the deep-ocean carbon cycle

An international team led by geologist Michael Strasser has used novel methods to analyze sediment deposits in the Japan Trench in order to gain...

Residual strain despite mega earthquake

On 22 May 1960, an earthquake shook the southern Chilean continental margin on a length of about 1,000 kilometers. Estimates suggest that around 1,600...

Geologists report new discoveries about Kansas, Oklahoma earthquakes

As concern rises about earthquakes induced by human activity like oil exploration, geologists at the University of Kansas report a new understanding about recent...

Small earthquakes at fracking sites may be early indicators of bigger...

Stanford geoscientists have devised a way of detecting thousands of faint, previously missed earthquakes triggered by hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking." The technique can be used...

Ancient weakening of Earth’s crust explains unusual intraplate earthquakes

New research reveals that mysterious pockets of earthquake activity in the middle of North America all have one thing in common: Earth's crust in...

Unearthing the underground effects of earthquakes and volcanoes

Most of what we know about earthquakes and volcanoes is based on what we can observe at the Earth's surface. However, most of the...

Earthquakes in the Himalaya are bigger than in the Alps because...

Earthquakes that happen in densely populated mountainous regions, such as the Himalaya, spell bigger earthquakes because of a fast tectonic-plate collision, according to a...

New early gravity signals to quantify the magnitude of strong earthquakes

After an earthquake, there is a disturbance in the field of gravity almost instantaneously. This could be recorded before the seismic waves that seismologists...

Parkfield segment of San Andreas fault may host occasional large earthquakes

Although magnitude 6 earthquakes occur about every 25 years along the Parkfield Segment of the San Andreas Fault, geophysical data suggest that the seismic...

Research shows North Texas earthquakes occurring on ‘dead’ faults
