The Very Long Reach of Very Large Earthquakes
Dr. Susan Hough, seismologist
Friday, November 4, 2005, 7:30 pm
co-sponsored by the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology Consortium and the Seismological Society of America
U.S. Geological Survey Seismologist Dr. Susan Hough recounts the voyage of scientific discovery of remotely triggered earthquakes -- earthquakes that follow large earthquakes but happen at much greater distances than aftershocks. She explains how the initial view of them has expanded since these temblors were first discovered in 1992, thanks to studies of historical earthquake accounts that indicate that they occur commonly. And she explains how prehistoric petroglyphs in California have prompted new paradigms for how earthquakes interact with each other and human cultures past and present.
