New Earthquake Research


Seismologists have revived a longstanding question in the wake of recent earthquakes: Can a giant temblor in one location trigger another large one thousands of miles away?
A new study provides the first compelling evidence that such big, distant events—which may appear to be linked when they occur within months of each other—are likely not connected at all.

I was surprised by this result. A new study on earthquakes reported on in today's Wall Street Journal. Subscription may be required.
