USGS Crustal Deformation Data part of SERC Web Resource Collection

The US Geological Survey maintains a variety of fault and volcano monitoring sites around the western United States. Instruments at these sites include strainmeters, creepmeters, tiltmeters, ...

Corrections of the Indian gauge data used for early assessments of the great 26 December 2004 earthquake part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This resource is an abstract. This study re-evaluates slip velocity over the region of the December 26, 2004 Sumatra-Andaman earthquake. Using new data, the authors found that a mixed mode of slip ...

Tsunami warnings using ocean circulation models part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This resource is an abstract. This study uses numerical models that take advantage of digital seismometry and satellite radar altimetry to shed light on tsunami source and formation mechanisms. The ...

Listening to the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami quake part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This resource is an abstract. This study tracks the movement of the rupture that caused the December 26, 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami by comparing recordings of sound waves from five sensors located ...

Predicting catastrophic earthquakes part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This resource provides an abstract. This article discusses a method based on the magnitude-frequency distribution of previous earthquakes in a region. It is used to examine the probability of a small ...

Reassessing the earthquake threat to San Francisco part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This resource provides an abstract. New research suggests that authorities may need to reassess the threat posed by the Hayward fault, the fault responsible for San Francisco's highly destructive ...

Molten rock makes big earthquakes bigger part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This resource provides an abstract. A modified friction welding device was used to spin one small cylinder of granite against another at high speed and pressure in order to simulate two plates ...

Stopping stick-slip seismic events? part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This resource provides an abstract. This study models underground frictional resistance in stick-slip seismic events in order to determine the amount of energy needed to weaken a fault plane enough ...

Earthquakes Of Yellowstone part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This University of Utah website describes a seismic network that monitors the seismically and volcanically active Yellowstone National Park area. It is designed for monitoring volcano and ...

Earthquakes - Discover Our Earth part of SERC Web Resource Collection

This site, from Cornell University, describes the origins, effects, measurement, and consequences of earthquakes. The site includes an overview and an exercise section that discusses key points ...
