NASA has enhanced existing GPS technologies to develop new systems for California and elsewhere to provide warning of hazards such as earthquakes, tsunamis and extreme weather events.
Tokyo, Dec 6, 2013 - (ACN Newswire) - Waseda University announces the formation of an international base for research on compound disasters due to tsunamis, earthquakes, storm surges and volcanic eruptions.
While the waves from a tsunami can be extremely destructive, acoustic waves could help warn of the impending danger.
According to a new report, two researchers have identified key acoustic characteristics of the 2011 Japan earthquake that could be used to significantly improve tsunami warning systems.
Researchers have shown that, by using global positioning systems (GPS) to measure ground deformation caused by a large underwater earthquake, they can provide accurate warning of the resulting tsunami in just a few minutes after the earthquake onset.
Researchers writing in the journal Geophysical Research Letters say the western Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami hazard potential is greater than scientists had originally predicted.
Two years ago today, Japan was rocked by a 9.0-magnitude earthquake and giant tsunami that caused both death and destruction throughout the country. Now, with instrument's like the European Space Agency's GOCE satellite, scientists will be able to understand a bit more about these devastating quakes.
Two years after the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan, researchers in the US and Canada are concerned about the possible damage that could be caused by invasive species that have found their way to North America on debris resulting from the 2011 disaster.
