Latest Seismometer Stories
Japan's March 11 Tohoku Earthquake is among the strongest ever recorded, and because it struck one of the world's most heavily instrumented seismic zones, this natural disaster is providing scientists with a treasure trove of data on rare magnitude 9 earthquakes.
An unusual signal detected results from waves in Lake Gatun, the reservoir that forms the Panama Canal channel.
First such station installed northwest of Columbia, Mississippi.
Learning from history, TAU invention can improve earthquake prediction today.
By studying seismographs from the earthquake that hit Chile last February, earth scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology have found a statistically significant increase of microearthquakes in central California in the first few hours after the main shock.
Careful analysis shows seismometer noise includes signals from storms in the South Atlantic and 'footquakes' from soccer matches.
ARMONK, N.Y., Oct.
A Princeton University-led research team has developed the capability to produce realistic movies of earthquakes based on complex computer simulations that can be made available worldwide within hours of a disastrous upheaval.
Scientists study the February Chilean earthquake, and the likelihood of future such quakes.
Seismologists have found a new way to piece together the history of hurricanes in the North Atlantic - by looking back through records of the planet's seismic noise.
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...
