Earthquake Science at Scripps
Dr. Neal Driscoll, geoscientist
California is earthquake country, particularly along the highly populated Pacific coastal region. Scripps scientists are working diligently to understand the likelihood of earthquakes along major southern California fault systems, both onshore and offshore, but techniques used on dry land cannot easily be applied to faults that lie just offshore beneath the Pacific ocean. Join Scripps geoscientist Neal Driscoll as he describes new approaches being used to provide insight into the hazards associated with faults just off our southern California coast.
