This week’s seismic activity provides classic examples of earthquakes originating from expected locations – subduction zones, transform boundaries and volcanic hotspots beneath plates.
This week’s seismic activity provides excellent examples of how earthquakes are generated from the variety of configurations of plate boundaries.
An M3.6 earthquake shook Kansas on July 17 – was this tremor the result of ancient fault lines, or just another in the series of Oklahoma fracking quakes?
What caused the Southern California earthquakes? M3.1 tremor near Mecca results from the San Andreas fault.
New Zealand just had a M6.9 earthquake, and a few significant aftershocks. What’s causing all that seismic activity in the Kermadec Islands?
What can the San Francisco area expect when it comes to earthquakes? Not just ‘The Big One’ according to researchers – but possibly multiple large tremors.
A new study has isolated locations of ancient California tsunamis – places where huge waves could hit again, with the right quake trigger.
What’s causing the increase in Oklahoma earthquakes? Fracking is to blame for the tremors, according to research, and could mean larger future quakes.
