Crowdsourcing speeds up earthquake monitoring

Added: 19.04.2019 20:22 | 1 views | 0 comments

Data produced by Internet users can help to speed up the detection of earthquakes. An international team of scientists has presented a method to combine in real time data from seismic networks with information derived from users looking for earthquake information on specific websites, the smartphone app 'LastQuake' and via Twitter. This method significantly reduces the time needed to detect and locate those earthquakes that are felt by the public.

Our country has suffered a series of unprecedented natural disasters over the last year. Hurricanes in the Southeast, wildfires in California, earthquakes in Alaska, and floods in the Midwest have left millions of Americans in desperate need of help from the federal government.

Southern California experiences 'hidden' earthquakes every 3 minutes, says study

More accurate investigation technique finds far more quakes than had previously been recorded, though most were tiny
Scientists counted 1.8 million earthquakes in California from 2008 to 2017, most of them so tiny that no one feels them.
Using a more accurate way of finding teeny tiny earthquakes, scientists recorded far from temblors than the current catalog of just under 180,000 for that decade, , according to a report in the journal Science on Thursday.

New way of designing systems against correlated disruptions uses negative probability

Added: 15.04.2019 20:23 | 8 views | 0 comments

Until now, systems engineers have struggled with the problem of planning for disaster impacts that are linked by correlation -- like those of earthquakes and tsunamis -- because of the cumbersome calculations necessary to precisely quantify the probabilities of all possible combinations of disruption occurrences. Now researchers have developed a new method for designing and optimizing systems subject to correlated disruptions.
