CBS SF Bay Area
The fault that produced a 4.0-magnitude earthquake in Fremont early Tuesday morning is expected to produce a major earthquake "any day now" and Bay Area residents should be prepared, a U.S. Geological Survey scientist said.
While damage from the quake was minimal, scientists warn that a much larger one is expected on the Hayward Fault, which extends from San Pablo Bay in the north to Fremont in the south and passes through heavily populated areas including Berkeley, Oakland, Hayward and Fremont.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
The Utica Shale and associated hydrocarbon-rich rock zones hold significantly more potentially recoverable natural gas than early estimates predicted, according to research released Tuesday at a workshop in Canonsburg.
It turns out, according to the new study’s estimates, the total Utica Shale play could hold technically recoverable volumes of 782 trillion cubic feet of natural gas and nearly 2 billion barrels of oil.

Researchers to explore Mount Rainier ice cave
United Press International
A team of geologists from Germany and the United States are preparing to spend several days exploring life inside an ice cave on Mount Rainier, Washington State's massive (and occasionally active) stratovolcano. A complex system of caves has been carved from the glaciers that fill Rainier's two craters as ice-melting geothermal heat from below ebbs and flows. The Mount Rainier Fumarole Cave Project will see scientists enter and study one of Rainier's unique caves for just more than a week.
