April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Earthquakes are a scary phenomenon. They are enormously destructive and much more common than you might think. Several million earthquakes are estimated to occur worldwide each year. Most are too small to feel, but they can be measured by arrays of seismometers. Some are so large they claim hundreds of thousands of lives (Shaanxi China, 1556, claimed 830,000 lives) while some create massive economic hardship (San Francisco, USA,...

Data generate 3-D 'CT scan' of North American continent's interior Yulee, Florida. Not a place one usually thinks of as an Earthquake Epicenter. But this swampland not far from the Georgia state line is now home to a state-of-the-art seismic station known as 457A. Here, within a few miles of the Atlantic Ocean, 457A has been installed to record ground motion from earthquakes. Earthquakes do happen on the East Coast of the United States, as the Virginia quake of August, 2011 attests....

Primary coordination point for EarthScope science, education and outreach activities The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded $2.4 million to Arizona State University (ASU) to serve as the next host for the EarthScope National Office. The national office fosters and supports integrated science, education and outreach, and related activities for EarthScope scientists. EarthScope is an NSF-funded Earth science program that explores the four-dimensional structure of the North American...

First such station installed northwest of Columbia, Mississippi Most seismic activity--and earthquakes--have been in the U.S. West. But the East is not out of the woods in terms of risk, geologists say. After a six-year march eastward from the U.S. West Coast, the EarthScope Transportable Array seismic network has reached a major milestone: installation of the first Transportable Array station east of the Mississippi River. Station 345A, located on a private farm about 15 miles northwest of...
