The High Plains: Land of Extremes

This site covers the physical features of the High Plains (or Great Plains), the grasses and plants of the area, prairie dog ecosystems, riparian areas, mining, management, water resources, and fire ...

FEMA HAZUS

This is a risk assessment software program that contains models for estimating potential losses from floods, hurricane winds and earthquakes. Loss estimates produced by HAZUS are based on current ...

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 ...

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 ...

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

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 ...

Improving earthquake warning in Costa Rica

This resource provides an abstract. This study examines seismic waves from a segment of the Middle America subduction zone below Central America that are capable of producing strong earthquakes. ...

Stopping stick-slip seismic events?

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 ...

Hurricane Katrina Special Feature

This National Wetlands Research Center (NWRC) clearinghouse provides links to information related to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Information includes science for emergency response and recovery, ...

Southern California Earthquake Data Center

This site features an interactive map of recent earthquakes in California and Nevada, a searchable earthquake data archive, a clickable fault map of southern California, and an interactive map of ...

Geological Survey of Canada, Geodynamics Program: Earthquake Processes: Cascadia Subduction Zone

This page explains the tectonic setting of the west coast of North America. It explains the process of the subduction of the Juan de Fuca plate beneath the North American plate. It describes the ...

Improving hurricane prediction

The authors report that a high resolution general circulation model now being used at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and Ames Research Center doubles the resolution of most global weather models ...

Volcanic Hazard from Iceland: Analysis and Implications of the Eyjafjallajokull Eruption

This report examines the Eyjafjallajökull eruption in Iceland of April 2010. It provides an integrated analysis covering volcanology, geophysics, meteorology, statistics, engineering, hazard and ...

California Burning: A multimedia project

This multimedia resource provides an overview of wildfire risk and response to the risk in California. Text, video, images, and data are used to discuss how drought and overgrowth of forests play a ...
