2020-12-29: M6.4 earthquake near Petrinja/Croatia

Dec 31, 2020  ·   Earthquake

The M6.4 event hit Croatia near Petrinja on 29 December, 2020 at 11:20 UTC (12:20 local time). The event was a shallow strike-slip event consistent with the local morphology explaining the reported large destruction of the nearby area.

Plate rupturing or landslide? What caused the tsunami after the M7.5 earthquake N of Palu, Indonesia?

Sep 28, 2018  ·   Earthquake

The large tsunami locally observed in the city of Palu, Indonesia on 28 September was triggered after the M7.5 earthquake to the North of the city but the large wave heights seem to be generated by a non-tectonic source.

The strong M7.1 earthquake close to Mexico City on 19 September 2017

Sep 19, 2017  ·   Earthquake

The strong M7.1 earthquake near Mexico City is likely to cause severe damage. The event was fully automatically detected and located by our automatic SeisComP3 system only 5 minutes and 21 seconds after the event occurred.

Rapid moment tensor, shaking intensity and tsunami simulation: the M8.1 Mexico earthquake on 08 September 2017

Sep 8, 2017  ·   Earthquake

We have simulated the tsunami wave heights and observed an unusual source mechanism for the M8.1 earthquake in the Pacific off-coast Mexico on 08 September, 2017. The full suite of SeisComP3 and gempa modules including TOAST and AUTOMT/MTV were applied to analyze this exceptional event.

TOAST predicts local tsunami for the M7.7 Ecuador earthquake on 16/04/2016

Apr 21, 2016  ·   Earthquake

Local tsunami wave heigths of up to 40 cm where observed for the M7.7 Ecuador earthquake on 16/04/2016. The hypocenter, magnitude, centroid depth and moment tensor were calculated using SeisComP3 and MTV.

Moment tensors provide depth control for reliable tsunami prediction

Apr 13, 2016  ·   Earthquake

Seaquakes have the potential to generate destructive tsunamis when the magnitude is large, the earthquake occurs at shallow depth below the ocean floor and the earthquake mechanism has a significant uplift component.

Tsunami Simulation of the M8.2 Chile earthquake on September 16, 2015

Sep 18, 2015  ·   Earthquake

Gempa has used the in-house development TOAST to predict the tsunami propagation for the very large M8.2 Chile earthquake on 16 September, 2015. TOAST is a key gempa component for tsunami early warning and has been implemented in early warning centers such as in Oman and Indonesia.
