First real-time measurements of Earth's surface displacement during major earthquake

A team of researchers led by the Department of Earth Sciences has collected the first real-time measurements of Earth's surface displacement during a major earthquake, as published in the journal Scientific Reports.
In a rapid-response study following the earthquake that occurred in Italy in August 2016, the research team developed and deployed specialised GPS receivers close to the fault line which caused the quake. Just two months later the receivers were able to precisely measure movements that occurred as a further Mw* 6.5 earthquake struck in October 2016, the largest event to occur in Italy in over 30 years.

22 quakes hit Italy, but none in Rome despite myth

There have been 22 earthquakes in Italy and the day's only half over. But none of them have been the devastating temblor predicted in an urban legend to strike Rome on Wednesday.
