Corrections of the Indian gauge data used for early assessments of the great 26 December 2004 earthquake

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

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

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

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

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 ...

A tsunami warning system for the Indian Ocean

This resource is an abstract. Using tidal gauge data from the time of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, the authors were able to reconstruct the height and speed of the waves and the time it took them ...

Cracks from a Japanese earthquake heal in two years

This resource provides an abstract. Seventeen years of shockwave recordings were used to investigate crack healing after the large March 1997 Tokai region earthquake in Japan. Recordings taken at two ...

Molten rock makes big earthquakes bigger

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 ...

How volcanic eruptions cause tsunamis

This study investigates the effect of pyroclastic flows on tsunami generation. The authors analyzed several possible mechanisms that occur when the particle rich flows encounter water and conclude ...
