Scientists may have found clues that might help them predict the next megaquake.
We all know about the weather on our planet, but what about weather that occurs in the center of the Earth? Scientists have found that the temperature 3,000 kilometers below the surface of Earth is much more varied than previously thought.
Nepal's earthquake in April 2015 was frightening. Now, though, researchers have announced that there were far fewer landslides from this devastating earthquake than expected-and have found out why that is.
The world-famous Australian reef is providing an effective barrier against landslide-induced tsunamis.
A new study suggests that the common believe that the Earth's tectonic plates stay strong when they slide under another plate may not be universal.
Scientists may be able to predict the source of the Northwest's next big earthquake.
Earth may have undergone its first ever CT scan. Researchers have used seismic waves from large earthquakes to map the Earth's interior to better understand its volcanic processes.
The mud volcano disaster in Indonesia may actually have been caused by humans. Scientists have taken a closer look at the Lusi mud flow and have found that it may have had its roots in human interference.
It turns out that Africa experienced some massive earthquakes in the past. Researchers have uncovered evidence of a large earthquake in Tanzania that occurred about 25,000 years ago.
California may be in danger of facing a tsunami. Researchers have discovered several major faults that lie offshore and could cause quakes and tsunamis that may impact the west coast.
Following Saturday's magnitude-7.8 earthquake, scientists have announced that Nepal's high country may risk landslides and mudslides in the following weeks.
The hunt for alien life continues, but one planet may not be as hospitable to life as scientists once believed. Researchers have examined our cosmic neighbor, Tau Ceti, and have found that the system is unlikely to host life.
