Image 1 - Fukushima Still Faces Earthquake Risk
2012-02-14 12:04:46

Seismic risk at the Fukushima nuclear plant increased after the magnitude 9 earthquake that hit Japan last March, scientists report. The new study, which uses data from over 6,000 earthquakes, shows the 11 March tremor caused a seismic fault close to the nuclear plant to reactivate. The results are now published in Solid Earth, an open-access journal of the European Geosciences Union (EGU). The research suggests authorities should strengthen the security of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear...

Image 1 - 3D Imaging Technology Could Help Multi-Fault Earthquake Preparations
2012-02-10 06:19:20

[ Watch the Video ] A team of U.S., Mexican, and Chinese geologists have used a new tool to help pinpoint the precise locations where earthquakes caused the planet's crust to rupture and alter the landscape, resulting in what they are calling the "most comprehensive before-and-after picture“¦ of an earthquake zone to date." The 3D images, which were published in the February 10 issue of the journal Science, were captured from a 7.2. magnitude earthquake that occurred near...

Change leadership expert, Brett Clay, who attended the National Speakers Association (NSA) Conference during the Super Bowl, says people can achieve their goals and feel like Super Bowl champions if they get into the actuation zone--the mindset of putting change into motion. Only by making changes can people improve their success and attain their goals. Clay discusses how people, such as the NSA Conference attendees, can put change into motion. http://changeleadershipgroup.com Seattle, WA...

Ohio Officials Suspend Fracking Operations At Well
2012-01-05 05:57:26

Ohio officials said Tuesday that the state has suspended operations at a well used to dispose of waste water from "fracking". The suspension comes after suspicion that disposal of waste water by reinjecting it into the ground may have triggered seismic activity. The latest earthquake measured 4.0 on New Year's Eve and was near the well operated by D&L Energy in Youngstown. The state shut down operations at the Youngstown injection well after a 2.7 magnitude quake on December 24....

Seismology
2014-01-12 00:00:00

Seismology is the scientific study of earthquakes and the spread of elastic waves through the Earth or through other planet-like bodies. The field includes studies of earthquake effects, such as tsunamis in addition to diverse seismic sources such as tectonic, volcanic, oceanic, atmospheric, and artificial processes. A related field that utilizes geology to infer information regarding past earthquakes is paleoseismology. A recording of earth motion as a function of time is a seismogram. A...

Physics
2014-01-12 00:00:00

Physics is a natural science involving the study of matter and its motion through space-time, along with related concepts such as energy and force. On a broader scale, it also involves the general analysis of nature, conducted in order to understand how the universe behaves. Physics is one of the oldest academic disciplines, perhaps the oldest through its inclusion of astronomy. Physics was part of natural philosophy until the Scientific Revolution in the 16th century, when the natural...

The Seismometer is an instrument designed to measure the motions of the ground. This includes seismic waves generated by earthquakes, nuclear explosions, and other seismic sources. Records of these activities allow seismologists to map the interior of the Earth, and locate and measure the size of the different sources. There are also seismographs, which is sometimes used in place of the word seismometer. However, a seismograph is the older instrument in which the measuring and recording...
