Matthew Siegfried, a postdoctoral researcher working with Dustin Schroeder in the Stanford Radio Glaciology Group, co-authored an article in The Conversation about the importance of understanding variations in the height of Antarctic ice shelves.
Radioactive mineral samples collected by Stanford Earth professor Rodney Ewing could aid a Department of Homeland Security project aiming to hunt down the source of illegal nuclear material that could end up in bombs.
New data on the 1999 disaster in Izmit, Turkey shows little quakes preceding the big one were unrelated and detecting foreshocks won't help predict major quakes. Bill Ellsworth of Stanford Earth led the research.
Geophysics professor Rosemary Knight comments on a study she co-authored showing that sinking land caused by intensive groundwater pumping in California is releasing trapped arsenic, a known carcinogen.
Ryan Smith, a doctoral candidate in geophysics, explains research he led showing that continued heavy pumping of groundwater in the Central Valley could threaten water supplies with arsenic contamination.
Stanford Earth geophysicist Bill Ellsworth explains his research showing that tremors preceding a 1999 earthquake in Turkey were no different than ordinary earthquakes - not warnings of the bigger quake to come.
