Physical deformation in the surface of volcanoes could indicate possible eruptions.
Fault system that runs along San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles County could be overdue for a major earthquake with up to magnitude 7.3.
The archipelago has seen some very weird sea creatures as of late.
Scientists are taking a closer look in the recent swarms of over 120 small quakes that occurred near Mount St. Helens in late November, watching out for any indicators of future explosions.
A team of engineers from UC Berkeley has built a tiny robot with the highest recorded robotic vertical jumping agility. The new technology could aid in rescue and search operations during disasters in urban areas.
New regulations on oil drilling in different parts of Oklahoma have reportedly significantly reduced the frequency of quakes and tremors in the state. This seems to prove that thousands of tremor "swarms" or quakes experienced in different areas, having magnitudes as high as 5.0, are actually man-made.
A new study from the University of Calgary revealed that injecting fluid deep underground could buildup enough stress to produce periodic earthquakes that can last for months after the fracking operations have stopped.
Researchers are waiting for NASA's data on seismic activities on Mars to fully understand if Mars-quakes may be able to produce energy enough to support microorganisms to thrive.
A team of geologists from the University of Tokyo has made a surprising discovery. In their study, Suguru Yabe and Yoshiyuki Tanaka state that the full moon can trigger enormous earthquakes. They found strong evidence after examining three separate databases on large scale seismic activities.
A new study revealed that ruptures in the northern part of Cascadia Subduction Zone is more frequent than previously thought, suggesting a higher chance of massive earthquake occuring within 50 years.
Scientists found that the sun and moon’s gravitational pull can trigger earthquakes along the San Andreas Fault.
New evidences shows that a subduction zone beneath Bangladesh is currently building strain that could produce up to magnitude 9 earthquake once released.
While lesser known than the San Andreas fault, the San Jacinto fault also poses a threat to millions of Californians, particularly those living in San Bernardino.
An ancient giant asteroid was reportedly found in Australia.
Natural disasters have been quite a curse to mankind. Many natural disasters from earthquakes, tsunamis to storms and even rainfalls have killed many thousands across the world. It's that one time when man feels helpless since no technology can stop nature's outburst. Lately there have been quite a few earthquakes that have shocked the world.
