Multi-fault ruptures : higher likelihood of larger Californian earthquakes

As I have mentioned in my About section, I am funded by NERC (that’s the Natural Environment Research Council) for my PhD in a DTP, which is like a special training program for PhD students (see… 532 more words

Locating Earthquake using Geiger's Method

Earthquake location problem is old, however, it is still quite relevant. The problem can be stated as to determine the hypocenter (x0,y0,z0) and origin time (t0) of the rupture of fault on the basis of arrival time data of P and S waves. 1,541 more words

More on Microseisms

The previous post gave me some confidence to suspect that storms in the north Atlantic basin may give rise to much of the microseism activity I see on my seismograph. 221 more words
