SMU analysis of recent North Texas earthquake sequence reveals geologic fault, epicenters in Irving and West Dallas
Initial results from the seismology team at Southern Methodist University reveal that a recent series of earthquakes near old Texas Stadium in the Dallas-Fort Worth area were relatively shallow and concentrated along a narrow two-mile line that indicates a fault extending from Irving into West Dallas. SMU and the United States Geological Survey have shared an interim report with the mayors of Dallas and Irving. Continue reading
NBC News has covered the research of SMU marine geologist Matthew Hornbach, who led a study that has uncovered a powerful new way to use data from the geological record to discover non-anthropogenic climate changes underway.
The study suggests warmer temperatures are destabilizing up to 2.5 gigatonnes of methane hydrate along the continental slope of the eastern United States.
