In this episode of Stanford Engineering’s The Future of Everything, geophysicist Eric Dunham details how new types of data collection and faster computers are helping our knowledge of earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanoes – and how to prepare for them. (Source: Stanford Engineering)
A decade after a powerful earthquake and tsunami set off the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear meltdown in Japan, Stanford experts discuss revelations about radiation from the disaster, advances in earthquake science related to the event and how its devastating impact has influenced strategies for tsunami defense and local warning systems.
A collection of research and insights from Stanford experts on where and how earthquakes happen, why prediction remains elusive, advances in detection and monitoring, links to human activities, how to prepare for "The Big One," and more.
The geophysics professor has been recognized for his role in the peer-review process, providing in-depth evaluations that greatly improved the final published papers, often over multiple rounds of revision.
An earthquake in Indonesia offered a detailed look at supershear, which can create the geologic version of a sonic boom. Stanford Earth's Eric Dunham says the event may help researchers better understand super-fast quakes.
