The Largest Deep Earthquake Ever Recorded
September 22, 2013 | University of California Santa Cruz
"A magnitude 8.3 earthquake that struck deep beneath the Sea of Okhotsk on May 24, 2013, has left seismologists struggling to explain how it happened. At a depth of about 609 kilometers (378 miles), the intense pressure on the fault should inhibit the kind of rupture that took place." Quoted from the University of California Santa Cruz press release.
Canary Island Landslides and Atlantic Ocean Tsunami Generation
December 17, 2013 | National Oceanography Centre
"The risk posed by tsunami waves generated by Canary Island landslides may need to be re-evaluated, according to researchers at the National Oceanography Centre. Their findings suggest that these landslides result in smaller tsunami waves than previously thought by some authors, because of the processes involved." Quoted from a National Oceanography Centre press release.

"The November 17, 2013 earthquake in the Scotia Sea, to the northwest of the South Orkney Islands, occurred as the result of either left-lateral strike slip faulting on an east-west oriented plane, or right-lateral faulting on a north-south plane. [...] The November 17 earthquake is the latest in a series of moderate-to-large earthquakes to strike the same region over the past several days." Quoted from the USGS earthquake summary.
