  • Ridgecrest temblors tripled chance of big earthquake on San Andreas fault: Study

    The study, published in the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America on Monday, says there is now a 2.3% chance of an earthquake of magnitude 7.5 or greater in the next 12 months on a section of the 160-mile-long Garlock fault, which runs along the northern edge of the Mojave Desert. That increased likelihood, in turn, would cause there to be a 1.15% chance of a large earthquake on the San Andreas fault in the next year.
  • Idaho started shaking March 31. Why hasn’t it stopped? Geologists research Sawtooth fault

    Idaho Statesman ^ | 7/6/2020 | Natalia Gutierrez-Pinto & Nicole Blanchard
    The shaking started March 31. That’s when the Sawtooth mountain range in central Idaho trembled with a 6.5-magnitude earthquake — the second strongest ever recorded in Idaho. From that very moment, geologists rushed to the epicenter area — 45 miles west of Challis — to start collecting valuable information that could help them understand what happened. Three months later, the rumbling still hasn’t subsided as aftershocks continue to jar the area. But now scientists have a better idea of what may have led to the major earthquake — and it’s helping them uncover some other secrets buried under Idaho’s soil....

    A 5.8 magnitude earthquake hit California around 10:45 a.m. local time Wednesday. The epicenter was near Cartoga, about 180 miles north of Los Angeles. People at several businesses near Lone Pine and Bishop told ABC News the while the shaking was "intense," they didn't see any damage. Several rockslides were reported in Inyo County. Some shaking was felt in LA. This comes a day after a 7.4 magnitude quake hit Mexico, near the resort of Huatulco, killing at least six people and damaging hundreds of homes, according to The Associated Press. At least six others were hurt, including two people...

    The new research provides the first quantitative synthesis of faulting across the entire continent, as well as hundreds of measurements of compressive stress directions—the direction from which the greatest pressure occurs in the Earth's crust. The map was produced by compiling new and previously published measurements from boreholes as well as inferences about kinds or "styles" of faults based on earthquakes that have occurred in the past. The three possible styles of faulting include extensional, or normal faulting, in which the crust extends horizontally; strike-slip faulting, in which the Earth slides past itself, like in the San Andreas fault; and...
  • Today Marks 114 Years Since the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake

    04/18/2020 7:50:48 PM PDT · by nickcarraway · 17 replies
    Saturday marks 114 years since the 1906 San Francisco earthquake struck the Bay Area and beyond. The 7.9-magnitude earthquake killed more than 3,000 people and destroyed 28,000 buildings. The earthquake was felt just after 5 a.m. throughout the Bay Area. The earthquake broke loose less than 30 seconds later, with an epicenter near San Francisco. Strong shocks lasted from 45 to 60 seconds. The great earthquake was felt from southern Oregon to south of Los Angeles and even as far as central Nevada. The earthquake marks as one of the most significant earthquakes of all time.
  • 'Waking up': Volcanic region gets hot after 'inactive for many centuries' Could impact travel for decades

    A region of Iceland is erupting for the first time in 800 years, raising concern of disruptions in air travel for centuries to come. The Guardian of London reported that since Jan. 21, the Reykjanes peninsula southwest of Iceland's capital, Reykjavik, has experienced more than 8,000 earthquakes. About 10 centimeters of land has risen due to magma intrusions underground, the paper said. "It seems that after being relatively inactive for many centuries, this region is waking up," Lancaster University volcanologist Dave McGarvie told the Guardian. The area is fed by five volcanic systems, the Guardian said, "which seem to come...
