Shopping around for phone cases ... I think this is the first time I have come across "aseismic" in a non-technical, non-earthquake context.

Very jealous! This conference is one of the biggest things I missed about PhD life.

Great to meet up yesterday with Rod Stewart, Director of Montserrat Volcano Observatory . Exciting work planned for Kick 'em Jenny volcano, and a good chat on how our scientific results from may be used for operational earthquake monitoring in the E. Caribbean.

At a recent conference a PhD student said they find it hard to openly admit that their geology research is funded by the oil & gas industry because of fear of online abuse 🙁 I don’t think anyone should be abused for being associated with oil and gas. Let me explain why..(1/n)

The pseudoscience gang are in a tizzy over recent global seismic activity, insisting that the number of quakes >M6 in the past month is "unprecedented". Here's proof that they're wrong (even if you ignore the 2011 Tohoku sequence)

This debacle all stemmed from a really bad press release from Oregon State Univ, on which most of the papers’ co-authors weren’t consulted on. Paper itself is actually quite innocuous and I’m not completely convinced by how robust their statistics were.

So pleased to have completed my first ever Fell Race today in the 33 km endurance run across the Gritstone escarpments of the Peak District with . Free ale at the end went down well.

Before too many people go nuts over the Mag 8.1 that occurred near 20 mins ago. This was another very deep ~670km event that would have had little impact at the surface. More info here:

Four dead and dozens missing after M6.6 in Hokkaido, Japan (). "All missing are from Atsuma", hit by extensive landslides: comparison between pre-earthquake Google Earth view and post-quake footage is terrifying

This is a mindboggling extent of landsliding. Difficult to imagine it happening, but illustrative of the well understood hazards of cyclones and quakes, especially together

Oh wow, this is fascinating. So what looked like a volcano-related deformation signal just turned out to be an artifact related to the atmosphere?

Great thread, ! I didn’t know about the “lucky” strong motion network - I wonder to what degree the science coming from these earthquakes would have have been less advanced without this network.

Cool! Geological evidence for earthquakes rupturing through the hydrated mantle. Possible implications a variety of earthquakes in subduction zones and deep-ish ruptures along oceanic & continental transform faults.
