Shake that Building - What Did You Learn in School Today?

submitted by: sciencebridge

CyberBridge and Chula Vista Middle School, team up to teach students critical knowledge about Earthquakes! Creating an earthquake simulation model, Chula Vista Middle staff, challenge students with creating buildings stable enough to withstand the quakes magnitude. Using, different craft materials, students learn what shapes and structures fair better against this real life natural phenomena.

Strong shaking in Los Angeles expected from southern San Andreas earthquake

submitted by: video_collector
The southernmost San Andreas fault has a high probability of rupturing in a large (greater than magnitude 7.5) earthquake sometime during the next few decades. New simulations show that the chain of sedimentary basins between San Bernardino and downtown Los Angeles form an effective waveguide that channels Love waves along the southern edge of the San Bernardino and San Gabriel Mountains. Earthquake scenarios with northward rupture, in which the guided wave is efficiently excited, produce...
