27 June 2017– The Eastern Tennessee Seismic Zone (ETSZ), a zone of small earthquakes stretching from northeastern Alabama to southwestern Virginia, may have generated earthquakes of magnitude 6 or greater within the last 25,000 years, according to a study published in the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America. … Continue Reading »
4 May 2017–The Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America (BSSA) is soliciting papers for a Special Issue on Reservoir Triggered Seismicity. December 10, 2017 marks 50 years since the 1967 magnitude 6.3 Koyna earthquake in western India, recognized as the world’s largest Reservoir Triggered Seismic (RTS) event.
28 February 2017–Results of a massive new project to map and classify the earthquake shaking potential across most of the Las Vegas metropolitan area will help developers there build in safer and less expensive ways. The “Parcel Map” described 28 February in the Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America is the most extensive effort to date in the United States to map and classify soils based on their effects on earthquake shaking across an entire urban area with systematic, direct measurements at high density.
