As many as 30 earthquakes were recorded in California over the past 24 hours, most of which were less than a magnitude in intensity. Despite all the tremors regional seismometers pick up in California and Nevada -- 808 in the past week alone -- most go unnoticed by residents.

Deadly Washington Landslide Was Not Caused By An Earthquake: USGS

A large landslide in northwest Washington that buried some 30 houses and killed at least two dozen people on March 22, 2014 may have been erroneously blamed on a minor earthquake that reportedly struck the area several days prior to the disaster.

Tsunami Debris Study Conducted By Researchers

While experts have long known that the debris caused by a tsunami can often cause as much damage as the actual wave itself, engineers have for the first time managed to design and conduct a series of large-scale simulations in order to determine the actual impact of these destroyed objects.

Pacific Ring of Fire
2013-02-19 13:18:27

The Pacific Ring of Fire, or Ring of Fire for short, is an area where a large number of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions occur in the basin of the Pacific Ocean. In a 25,000 mile horseshoe shape, it’s associated with an almost continuous series of oceanic trenches, volcanic belts, volcanic arcs and/or plate movement. The Ring of Fire contains 452 volcanoes and is home to over 75 percent of the world’s active and dormant volcanoes. It’s sometimes called the circum-Pacific belt or the...

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...
