Turkey’s Adana Hospital survived February 2023 earthquakes with no damage because of its seismic isolation system.

February earthquakes wreaked havoc across Turkey and Syria, killing tens of thousands of people. An engineer originally from Turkey describes what kept some buildings functional while others collapsed.
Earth doesn’t just have an inner core. It also has an innermost inner core, a solid ball within the solid ball in the very middle of the planet.

In an extraterrestrial first, scientists have linked seismic waves on Mars to meteorite impact craters spotted via satellite.
Rumbles elephants make travel through the air and the ground.
African elephants stay in touch over large distances. We found out how.

The Perseverance rover’s landing could help reveal secrets of Mars’ interior.
New research confirms that massive plumes of buoyant hot rock once rose from near the Earth’s core to the surface and triggered vast volcanic eruptions - and that New Zealand sits on top of one.
What’s going on 150 kilometers below the Earth’s surface?

A new array of seismometers provides a glimpse of what’s happening deep beneath this geologic fault. New data help explain why the north and south of the region are more seismically active than the middle.
InSight aims to figure out just how tectonically active Mars is, and how often meteorites impact it.
What is Mars made of? We hear from a scientist who will be part of the team analysing ‘marsquake’ seismic data and orbital imagery from the InSight mission to the red planet.
Seismic shockwaves after a meteorite’s collision could affect systems all over the planet.
Research suggests a new threat to life on Earth from the meteorite’s crash: Via seismic waves, the impact triggered massive undersea eruptions, as big as any ever seen in our planet’s history.

The Nov. 12 earthquake wasn’t centered on any known major faults in the Earth’s crust. In its wake, scientists will collect data to add detail to what they know about seismic activity in the area.
Scientists in Japan have discovered a way to ‘hear’ storms on the other side of the planet and use them to study the Earth’s crust.
We find them at the beach, in every sound and light show, the miracle of wi-fi and now in the fabric of space-time itself. But what exactly is a wave?
Retrofitting old or cheap houses with earthquake protection is often expensive and laborious. What if we could save whole streets at a time?

Japan has the most powerful seismic network in the world. And this network is throwing out some warning signs.
Surface measurements hint at what’s going on within.
For seismologists, there’s much to be learned after a major earthquake, as aftershocks help them map out the fault with high precision. More data now can prepare a region for its next big one.
I’ve been underestimated for too long.
Earthquake analysis could help us understand the deep structure of volcanoes.
