Precariously balanced rocks provide clues for unearthing underground fault connections2015-09-09 13:48:11
Stacked in gravity-defying arrangements in the western San Bernardino Mountains, near the San Andreas Fault, granite boulders that should have been toppled by earthquakes long ago resolutely remain. In exploring why these rocks still stand, researchers have uncovered connections between Southern California's San Jacinto and San Andreas faults that could change how the region plans for future earthquakes.
Researchers map out trajectory of April 2015 earthquake in Nepal2015-09-09 14:46:16
Researchers from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego have accurately mapped out the movement of the devastating 7.8-magnitude Nepal earthquake that killed over 9,000 and injured over 23,000 people. Scientists have determined that the earthquake was a rupture consisting of three different stages. The study could help a rapidly growing region understand its future seismic risks.
Researchers quantify nature's role in human well-being2015-09-09 15:41:30
The benefits people reap from nature -- or the harm they can suffer from natural disasters -- can seem as obvious as an earthquake. Yet putting numbers to changes in those ecosystem services and how human well-being is affected has fallen short, until now.
