After the 2011 Fukushima earthquake, the reactors at TEPCO’s nuclear facility began leaking radioactive groundwater. The plan to contain the contamination is to use ground freezing to construct an "ice wall" to cutoff the flow. […]
A seismologist at the University of Tokyo believes that the monstrous tsunami that was responsible for so much damage and loss of life during the 2011 Fukushima earthquake may have been a result of a […]
New leaks into the groundwater have been detected at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant in Japan that experienced a triple meltdown in 2011 after an earthquake and Tsunami. The plant’s operator, Tepco, recently admitted […]

The NSF funded Geotechnical Extreme Events Reconnaissance (GEER) team has provided a preliminary report and some amazing photos and video of the damage to various regions of Japan affected by the moment magnitude 9.0 earthquake that struck on March 11, 2011. Read on to see some amazing photos and video of the liquefaction damage related to the Tohoku Earthquake in Japan. (Photos from Oregon State Flickr)
"I’m a member of an organization, the Geotechnical Extreme Events Reconnaissance Organization," said U.C. Davis Professor Ross Boulanger, Ph.D. Boulanger recently led a team of researchers in Japan, looking at how the dramatic earthquake […]
A magnitude 6.8 earthquake struck Japan on 7/16/07, killing 9 and injuring more than 150. The hardest hit areas were near the town of Kashiwazaki, northwest of Tokyo. It triggered mudslides in the town that was already effected by a Typhoon several days before. One of the most newsworthy things about this earthquake is the damage to and minor leakage of radioactive waste and coolant from the world’s largest nuclear power plant in Kashiwazaki.
