Geomagnetic Storms Could Be Recorded at Alaska Seismic Stations

Alaska Transportable array

30 June 2020–Adding relatively inexpensive magnetometers to seismic stations across Alaska could help track geomagnetic storms as well as improve the performance of the seismometers, researchers report in the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America. As solar winds—plasma ejected from the Sun—interact with the Earth’s magnetic field at the … Continue Reading »

New in BSSA: Two Ways that Fault Segments May Connect

7 April 2020–In complex fault zones, multiple seemingly disconnected faults can potentially rupture at once, increasing the chance of a large damaging earthquake. Recent earthquakes including the 1992 Landers, 1999 Hector Mine and 2019 Ridgecrest earthquakes in California, among others, ruptured in this way. But how can seismologists predict whether … Continue Reading »
