Smartphones and other personal electronic devices could, in regions where they are in widespread use, function as early warning systems for large earthquakes according to newly reported research. This technology could serve regions of the world that cannot afford higher quality, but more expensive, conventional earthquake early warning systems, or could contribute to those systems
A technology developed by Stanford scientists for passively probing the seafloor using weak seismic waves generated by the ocean could revolutionize offshore oil and natural gas extraction by providing real-time monitoring of the subsurface while lessening the impact on marine life.
MagiQ Technologies will be participating in the 84th annual Society of Exploration Geophysicists (SEG) Meeting. SEG Denver 2014 takes place October 26th –October 31st at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, CO. We will be demonstrating our GeoOptics Seismic Sensor at booth #366 at SEG.
Silicon Audio, a technology innovation company, today announced its low-noise optical seismometer at the 2014 SEG International Exposition in Denver, booth #2188. The new seismic sensor is the same size and shape as a conventional geophone, but it uses optics technology to record much lower frequencies at a previously unachievable noise floor.
Dr. WenZhan Song, a professor in the Department of Computer Science at Georgia State University, has received a four-year, $1.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation to create a real-time seismic imaging system using ambient noise.
Ten, 20 or 30 seconds might not sound like a lot of time, but it could make a big difference when an earthquake hits.
RISCO Group, a major integrated security solutions supplier, has entered into agreements with a number of Chinese banks to offer security for their numerous ATM Machines (cash machines).
Trimble introduced today an integrated Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) reference receiver, broadband seismic recorder and a force-balance triaxial accelerometer for infrastructure and precise scientific applications¯the Trimble® SG160-09 SeismoGeodetic system.
A small army of 75 geophysicists is set to converge on Mount St. Helens this weekend to begin final preparations for the equivalent of a combined ultrasound and CAT scan of the famous volcano’s internal plumbing.
Scientists from NASA's InSight mission to Mars have been checking out the lowest vibration sites across the UK in order to find somewhere quiet enough to calibrate the seismometer that will be travelling to the Red Planet in 2016.
