The findings suggest that disaster planning efforts consider whether nearby faults are capable of producing this type of temblor, which can be more damaging.
Q&A with professor Jonathan Stewart about what the team he organized learned in the aftermath of the Ridgecrest earthquakes.
Only a dozen such quakes have been identified in the past two decades, according to Lingsen Meng, UCLA’s Leon and Joanne V.C. Knopoff Professor of Physics and Geophysics.
25 years after Northridge, civil and environmental engineers are using artificial intelligence, machine learning, sensor networks and advances in mapping in their work.
UCLA scientists are increasing our understanding of earthquakes and helping California prepare for catastrophe.
The geological abnormalities they observed were collected as part of a long-term research effort.
Reconnaissance group leaves Saturday to investigate geotechnical and geological aspects of the destructive quake sequence in August.
Students in “Intro to Oceanography” spoof music videos for the sake of science.
UCLA’s Seulgi Moon and her colleagues devised a mathematical model that estimates the amount of stress bedrock is under, which will enable scientists to predict where fractures may occur.
Two UCLA engineering professors say that it's crucial for engineers to understand the hazards that threaten our levees to ensure that California's fresh water delivery system remains protected in the future.
Drawing lessons from the Northridge earthquake and many more since, dozens of UCLA researchers are helping ensure that we are better prepared for future quakes.
