first_imgScientists will be able to predict earthquake magnitudes earlier than ever before thanks to new research by Marine Denolle, assistant professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences (EPS).“For large-strike slip earthquakes like those that occur on the San Andreas Fault, which are likely to rupture for about 50 seconds, we would be able to predict the final magnitudes 2 to 5 seconds after getting the first seismic wave,” said Denolle, senior author of the study that appeared recently in Geophysical Research Letters.Denolle shares authorship with Philippe Danré, the first author and former EPS visiting master’s student; Jiuxun Yin, a Ph.D. candidate in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences; and Brad Lipovsky, an EPS researcher. The team also proved that the activity of earthquakes is actually organized, not chaotic as scientists had previously believed.“Our research, which is technically rather simple, provides answers relevant not only to earthquake dynamics, but to prediction of earthquake behavior before the earthquake ends,” said Denolle. While there is still no way to predict quakes before they begin, current detection systems consist of a series of sensors that transmit signals to determine the location and magnitude once rapid shaking occurs.Denolle and her team used data products and created numerical models to predict an earthquake’s final magnitude 10 to 15 seconds faster than today’s best algorithms — seconds that could provide enough time for people to exit a building or for officials to stop traffic before shaking starts.The team began by examining patterns of seismic signals — transient waveforms that radiate from the first rupture in a fault, a thin seam of crushed rock separating two blocks of the earth’s crust. An earthquake occurs when the blocks break free. Scientists read these waves using an underground instrument called a seismometer that translates motions into a graph called a seismogram. “Seismograms give us information about what happened on the fault at the place where the earthquake occurred,” said Denolle.Denolle and her team combined previous seismograms, which recorded changes in the waves over time as they traveled between the seismometer and the fault. This data product, known as “source time function,” provides a more accurate read on the waves from the source over long distances.Denolle and her team examined a catalog of source time functions from earthquakes around the globe between 1990 and 2017. They discovered that large earthquakes are actually composed of a series of subevents, smaller events whose size is nearly proportional to the size of the main one. The team concluded that they could predict the final size of an earthquake based on the size of the first few subevents.“The self-organization of earthquake ruptures is well-explained by heterogeneity on the fault, and our current knowledge of earthquake physics can explain our observations,” said Denolle.The researchers hope their work will continue to evolve and can one day help improve the algorithms for early warnings of earthquake. To do this, they will work on extracting more accurate high-frequency signals from earthquakes to understand more about their dynamics.“Eventually, we would hope that the study can provide some guidelines for proper modeling of large earthquakes, and serve as a tool for earthquake early warning, especially for regions expecting large earthquakes, like the Pacific Coast and Japan,” said Denolle.last_img read more

first_imgGAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a former Florida resident has been returned to the United States after traveling to Turkey and attempting to join the Islamic State group. The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Gainesville announced Monday that 33-year-old Mohamed Fathy Suliman, a U.S. citizen, has been charged with attempting to provide material support for a designated foreign terrorist organization. If convicted, he faces up to 20 years in prison. According to the criminal complaint, Suliman traveled from Orlando to Turkey in June 2014. He was arrested by Turkish authorities and accused of illegally crossing into Syria. Officials say a search of Suliman’s emails revealed attachments that contained various audio files that consisted of messages calling for jihad.last_img

HORSE RACING-BELMONT-BARN QUARANTINEPrecautionary quarantine at Belmont Park barn is liftedNEW YORK (AP) — Officials have lifted a precautionary quarantine on a barn at Belmont Park after test results for a horse suspected of having equine herpesvirus Type 1 were negative.The New York Racing Association said Sunday all horses in Barn 37 were found to not have fever and were asymptomatic. As a result, they can enter races and train among the general population.The precautionary quarantine had been put in place a day earlier after a 4-year-old colt exhibited fever and neurological symptoms. Freudnme is being monitored by a private veterinarian. The colt last raced at Finger Lakes in upstate New York in June 2019. EHV-1 can cause an upper respiratory infection in young horses. If a number of horses are housed together, they can become sick and then recover uneventfully. However, equine herpesvirus-1 can also cause a severe neurological disease that affects a horse’s brain and spinal cord, and may result in paralysis and death.Belmont’s current meet ends July 12.

first_imgLEAH BELLACK/Herald photoFollowing a thrilling 71-69 double-overtime victory over the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, the UW women’s basketball team squares off Thursday against Virginia Tech at the Kohl Center as a part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.The Badgers (6-1) struggled in Tuesday’s game against the Panthers, but after escaping with the win and a six-game winning streak intact, they are happy to have come away with a positive result against in-state rival UWM.“It was huge; it’s a tough game to play, because it was almost like a trap game,” head coach Lisa Stone said of the win. “It was huge because we won in a way that was different from the Baylor game, and different from the Villanova game. We found a way in the end to slug it out and get the job done and get the result on our side.”Virginia Tech (5-1) enters Thursday’s contest having lost 72-43 in its last game against then-No. 17 Vanderbilt. Prior to the loss, the Hokies had opened the season with a five-game winning streak, including a thrilling 66-63 victory over St. Joseph’s in the Vanderbilt Thanksgiving Tournament.The Hokies average 66 points per game, and junior guard Lindsay Biggs leads the team with 13.2 points per game. Junior forward Utahya Drye also averages double figures for the Hokies, scoring 12.5 points per game while leading the team with 6.2 rebounds per game.“It starts off with just making sure that we play defense like we do every single game and coming out right away and setting the tone for the game,” junior forward Mariah Dunham said. “Honestly, I think if we play the defense we know how to play, it really doesn’t matter who the competition is because every player in our defense helps out one another.”Through six games, Virginia Tech has averaged 17.67 turnovers per game against 17.5 per game for its opponents. The Hokies’ -0.17 turnover margin ranks just behind Boston College for last in the ACC.The Badgers, on the other hand, have turned the ball over much less than their opponents. Wisconsin averages 15.14 turnovers per game compared to 18.28 turnovers per game by its opponents. With a +3.14 turnover margin, Wisconsin ranks second in the Big Ten.“It’s important, especially for our team,” junior guard Rae Lin D’Alie said of taking care of the ball. “We need to do that to win along with playing good defense, so it’s really good.”Wisconsin got the majority of its points Tuesday from its bench, including 16 from junior forward Mariah Dunham and 10 from freshman guard Jade Davis. Throughout their current six-game winning streak, a variety of stars have emerged for the Badgers, with any player capable of leading the team on any given night.The backcourt starters for Wisconsin struggled Tuesday, shooting just a combined 5-for-25 from the field, including 1-for-10 beyond the arc. Seeing Dunham and Davis take charge in the game is encouraging for the Badgers, especially for D’Alie and fellow guard Alyssa Karel to know they don’t need to carry the team night-in and night-out.“What Jade Davis did certainly was huge, and Mariah gave us some scoring, some great passing and great overall play inside,” Stone said. “When you’re getting that type of production off your bench, it shows that no matter who you throw out there, you can hopefully stay at that level or take it another step higher.”With Thursday’s game being part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge, it marks another opportunity for Wisconsin to prove their worth. Certainly, with a win against a top-10 team already on their record, a non-conference victory over Virginia Tech would go a long way toward improving not only the Badgers’ reputation, but also the reputation of the Big Ten as a whole.“It’s very important because I think a lot of people kind of doubt the whole Big Ten/ACC Challenge thing,” Dunham said. “They always think that the ACC — men and women — is automatically going to win, but the [UW] men kind of proved it, and we just need to follow along in their footsteps and prove that we can beat them as well.”last_img read more
