November was not highlighted by a large event (> M 7). However, the TOP 3 of the largest earthquakes include a deep focus rupture on November 30th in the Tatar Strait between eastern Russia and Sakhalin Island (Figure 1). This earthquake (M 6.4) occurred at a depth of ~600 km according to different seismology agencies. The moment tensor representation shows an oblique mechanism with a dominant ...[Read More]

I was fascinated and excited on my first trip to Iceland in August 2010; just a few months after the eruption of Eyjafjallajökull that affected the air traffic across Europe for a few days. Besides these dangerous volcanoes, the Icelandic landscape is beautiful, rough, wide and impressive with elements such as water and ice interacting directly at some locations. Part of this trip was, of course, ...[Read More]
On October 30th, a strong earthquake with Mw 7.0 occurred in the Aegean Sea, between the main cities of Samos in Greece and Izmir in Turkey. The hypocenter location and focal mechanism suggest shallow depth (~10 km) and normal faulting on the E-W plane. This is in agreement with the tectonic setting where an N-S extension is dominant. Moreover, the rupture propagates near the Menderes Graben in We ...[Read More]
