  • April 22 – Trees have a theoretical maximum height of 130m (426 ft) before gravity restricts their growth, according to a study published in Nature.[5]
  • September 28 – A long-awaited earthquake strikes Parkfield, California, the most closely monitored earthquake zone in the world. The earthquake, which had been expected to have occurred by the late 1980s, strikes at a magnitude 6.0. The network of instruments that had been installed in the region make this the most well-recorded earthquake in history.
  • December 26 – Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami.
