A magnitude 7.0 earthquake occurred in southern Peru on the 1st March 2019 at 08:50:41 UTC. The event depth is 257km and hence no major damage is expected. Details: insn.ie/2019-03-01-m7-… @DIAS_Dublin @GeolSurvIE @k_verbruggen

Congrats to @StKiliansDS team Roan Batard, Ethan McQuaid & Marilou Gerbelot-Barillon on winning the Group 2nd place in Physical, Chemical & Mathematical Sci at @BTYSTE lfor their project: 'What makes Dublin shake?' @dias_geophysics were delighted to support you with your project! twitter.com/NBourgeois_Pro…

With support from the @GeolSurvIE , €1.5m is being invested to expand and upgrade the Irish National Seismic Network (insn.ie) New funding will result in more stations, greater coverage & more accurate recording of earthquakes in Ireland. tinyurl.com/yb6ho2cp

A seismometer has just been deployed on the surface of Mars! " This was the first time a science instrument had ever been placed onto the surface of another planet" For more info tinyurl.com/y7amv9qo

Our own Prof. Sergei Lebedev has been listed as one of the top 100 scientists making the world a better place! For more info' on his project check out sea-seis.ie and also Prof. Chris Bean's imarl.ie #deepoceanlistening tinyurl.com/ybd2hgo8

Dr. Duygu Kiyan recently presented her work at the AGU Meeting in Washington, USA. Along with her colleagues, she is imaging Ireland's lithosphere using legacy and newly acquired magnetotelluric data across Ireland. @iCRAGcentre @DIAS_Dublin @GeolSurvIE @tcdastro

The field season of the DIAS led HERSK project started last week when Icelandic Met Office engineers transported seismic gear with skidoos onto Hekla volcano. The HEkla Real-time Seimic networK project is funded by the GSI shortcall program and led by Martin Möllhoff at DIAS.

This inflation has critically stressed the rocks in the volcano, such that small local earthquakes are being triggered by the tiny ground shaking from large distant earthquakes in the surrounding Pacific ‘ring of fire’.

Recent ascent of magma to shallow levels in the volcano has caused more than one metre of uplift of the volcano’s surface and thousands of small earthquakes.
