Earthquakes Can Be Predicted Five Days Ahead

Earthquakes Can Be Predicted Five Days Ahead
An international team of researchers, which includes physicists from HSE University and the RAS Space Research Institute (IKI), have discovered that, with an impending earthquake, the parameters of internal gravity waves (IGWs) can change five days before a seismic event. This data can help experts develop short-term earthquake forecast methods. The results of the study have been published in the journal Doklady Earth Sciences.

Alexey Starobinsky, a professor of physics at HSE University and a fellow at the Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics at the Russian Academy of Science, has been awarded the Dirac Medal of the ICTP, a prestigious prize awarded annually by the Abdus Salam International Center for Theoretical Physics. HSE News Service spoke with the laureate about his path to international recognition, his students, and the award.

Competition for Research Labs in Quantum Technologies and New Functional Materials: Two Weeks Until Application Deadline

We are inviting prospective experimental physicists with comprehensive work experience in the field of quantum nanoscience to participate in the international competition. The candidates should hold a PhD conferred no more than fifteen years ago. The winners will be responsible for building strong research teams that will engage in active research in relevant areas. Starting in 2022, the heads of the laboratories will also be charged with attracting annual co-financing. The winners of the competition will be hired full-time as laboratory heads at the Faculty of Physics for the full duration of the project.

HSE and Joint Institute for Nuclear Research Sign Cooperation Agreement

IBR-2 Pulsed Reactor
The HSE Faculty of Physics and the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) have reached an agreement on a joint partnership. From the beginning of the next academic year, students from the faculty will be able to carry out internships at the institute’s various research laboratories.

Predictions Only Hold Scientists Back
