Extreme evolution: Researchers find hurricanes drive the evolution of more aggressive spiders

McMaster University

Researchers at McMaster University who rush in after storms to study the behaviour of spiders have found that extreme weather events such as tropical cyclones may have an evolutionary impact on populations living in storm-prone regions, where aggressive spiders have the best odds of survival.

Helping Marshalltown recover from tornado through research, outreach

Iowa State University

One year after an EF-3 tornado struck Marshalltown, Iowa State students and faculty are conducting research and outreach to help a community still in recovery. They’re using what they’ve learned to create a toolkit that communities can use to examine challenges that exacerbate a disaster’s damage and slow recovery efforts.

Study Uses Supercomputers to Advance Dynamic Earthquake Rupture Models

University of California San Diego

Multi-fault earthquakes can span fault systems of tens to hundreds of kilometers, with ruptures propagating from one segment to another. During the last decade, seismologists have observed several cases of this complicated type of earthquake rupture, and are now relying on supercomputers to provide detailed models to better understand the fundamental physical processes that take place during these events, which can have far reaching effects.

Satellite observations improve earthquake monitoring, response

University of Iowa

Researchers at the University of Iowa and the United States Geologic Survey report data gathered by orbiting satellites can yield more information about destructive earthquakes and can improve aid and humanitarian response efforts. The researchers looked at satellite data from several recent, large-magnitude earthquakes.
