Irish scientists discover why Ireland has fewer earthquakes than Britain

Earthquake traces

(08.06.2023) A team of researchers from the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS) and the University of Cambridge has discovered that variations in the thickness of tectonic plates relate directly to the distribution and risk of earthquakes in… Read More
