A massive earthquake that affected the Maule region of Chile in February 2010 also unleashed a series of smaller seismic events known as “icequakes” nearly 3,000 to the south in Antarctica, a team of researchers report in a new Nature Geoscience study.
Scientists have long used the speed of seismic waves traveling through the Earth as a means of learning about the geologic structure beneath the Earth's surface, but the seismic waves they use have typically been generated by earthquakes or man-made explosions.
Known as rogue or freak waves, these towering walls of water are simply called monsters of the sea by some people.
US scientists believe they have made great headway in understanding what have been termed, freak waves.
Stories of ships mysteriously sent to watery graves by sudden, giant waves have long puzzled scientists and sailors. New research by San Francisco State professor Tim Janssen suggests that changes in water depth and currents
British mathematicians say they've created a formula that can be used to predict tsunamis and how destructive the tsunamis might become. Scientists at Newcastle University, led by Professor Robin Johnson, studied the 2004 tsunami that devastated coastal communities in Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India and Thailand when an ocean earthquake triggered a long surface wave that resulted in six massive consecutive wave fronts. The third wave, the largest, reached a height of more than 65 feet and, among...
