Thorne Lay: Lessons From The Global Surge Of Great Earthquakes

Town Hall Seattle says
Earthquakes occur in the Pacific Northwest, and in the Puget Sound we’re particularly at risk for “The Big One.” Between 2004-14, there were 18 earthquakes around the world (with seismic magnitudes greater than 8.0), which occurred at an annual rate of 2.5 times greater than the previous century. The University of California Santa Cruz’s Thorne Lay will explain how geophysicists analyzed the ground motions recorded by global networks of high-quality seismic, geodetic, and tsunami systems, advancing our understanding of these dangerous events. Lay will also provide concrete examples of how these earthquakes are revising scientific ideas about the behavior of huge fault ruptures and indicating the need for improved mitigation efforts.
