One thought on “Anticipating Earthquakes

  1. The Earthquake Hazards Reduction Act of 1977 was enacted because scientists believed that earthquake prediction around the corner. Seismology largely a statistically based science and will be obsolete this century IMO. Why? Deep earth study advances almost daily and it is the physicists with their knowledge of fluid mechanics that are gaining daily in the knowledge of magma flows which often result in vulcanic activity and earthquakes. Few seismologists understand fluid mechanics and largely rely on surface tremor statistical data arrays.

    And BTW DHS and FEMA have no on board physicists or seismologists or vulcanologists. Perhaps you have to be a science denier to be employed there?

    No climatologists either.
