Earthquake Measurement – Lecture Notes

by Joel Pomerantz

July 24th, 2014

I really enjoyed learning about the way that seismologists relate to earthquakes. Julian Lozos gave a talk at the Randall Museum on July 17th and here are my notes.

The best part was coming to understand how mathematical modeling is based on so many different measurements. And each measurement has its limits and peculiarities. I kinda also liked his confession that many seismologists believe the chaos in the system might permanently inhibit accurate quake predictions from ever being possible.
