2011-12-22The global seismology community established a new model of international cooperation in response to the great Chile earthquake of February 27, 2010. The adaptable framework is geared to produce a high-quality, open-access data set of seismic waveforms col
2011-08-16In its July 2011 issue, Popular Science ranked EarthScope the “most epic” big science project because of its ambitious scope: Exploration of the deep geologic structure and evolution of an entire continent.
2011-03-22The San Andreas Fault (SAF) deforms by permanent creep and microseismicity in central California. Higher-thanhydrostatic fluid pressures, which could explain low strength and creep, were not detected during the San Andreas Fault Observatory at Depth (SAFO
2010-09-22GPS data collected as part of PBO, though, contain additional information that is very useful in ways unforeseen when the original PBO science plan was created.
