Flotsam from the 2011 Japanese tsunami is still washing up on the western shores of the United States and these drifting boats could be transporting invasive and dangerous species into North American waters.
The massive tsunami that struck Japan in 2011 was a wake-up call for Honolulu officials, who immediately began working on updating the island's evacuation plans and procedures. This renewed attention also led to the unlocking of a scientific mystery surrounding a massive sediment deposit on the island of Kauai.

A 70-foot-long, 52-ton concrete bridge survived a series of earthquakes in the first multiple-shake-table experiment in the University of Nevada, Reno's new Earthquake Engineering Lab, the newest addition to the world-renowned earthquake/seismic engineering facility.
The Richter scale assigns a single number to quantify the amount of seismic energy released by an earthquake. The scale uses a base-10 logarithm by calculating the logarithm of the combined horizontal amplitude of the largest displacement from zero on a particular type of seismometer. A earthquake measuring 5.0 on the Richter scale has a shaking amplitude 10 times larger than one that measures 4.0. The moment magnitude, calibrated to give generally similar value for medium-sized...
