Earthquake, tsunami hazards from subduction zones might be higher than current estimates

Tue, 04 May 2021 08:15:00 +0200sciencecodex (en)

Two of the most destructive forces of nature - earthquakes and tsunamis - might actually be more of a threat than current estimates according to new research conducted by scientists at The University of New Mexico and the Nanyang Technological University published today in Nature Geoscience.

Earthquake And Tsunami Hazards Along Coasts Might Be Higher Than Expected

Mon, 03 May 2021 22:32:00 +0200techcodex (en)

The researchers developed a new method to assess earthquake and tsunami hazards represented by the most distant part of offshore subduction zones and found that the hazard might have been systematically underestimated in some areas, meaning that tsunami risk assessments should be redone given the new results.

Slip rate deficit and earthquake potential on shallow megathrusts

Mon, 03 May 2021 18:46:00 +0200nature-ngeo (en)

Most destructive tsunamis are caused by seismic slip on the shallow part of offshore megathrusts. The likelihood of this behaviour is partly determined by the interseismic slip rate deficit, which is often assumed to be low based on frictional studies of shallow fault material.
