‘Fossil earthquakes’ offer new insight into seismic activity deep below earth’s surface
The research was led by the University of Plymouth and University of Oslo, with scientists conducting geological observations of seismic structures in exhumed lower crustal rocks on the Lofoten Islands
Project combines geology and technology to generate a new approach to calculating earthquake hazard
Dr Zoë Mildon, Lecturer in Earth Sciences at the University of Plymouth, has been awarded £1.1million to develop a new means of modelling all aspects of the earthquake cycle
The geological record of earthquakes – Dr Sarah Boulton
What's on at the University of Plymouth: The geological record of earthquakes, a Public Research Lecture by Dr Sarah Boulton on the geological perspective of earthquake activity and after-effects. Thursday 23 May 2019.
Stresses from past earthquakes explain location of seismic events
A study published in Nature Communications and led by Dr Zoë Mildon, Lecturer in Earth Sciences at the University of Plymouth, could go some way to explaining both historical and modern series of earthquakes
