Forecasting Earthquakes: The RELM Test
Found in: Computing in Science & Engineering
By Michael Sachs,Donald L. Turcotte,James R. Holliday,John Rundle
Issue Date:September 2012
pp. 43-48
Earthquakes don't have precursors that can be reliably used for earthquake prediction. However, distributions of earthquakes (seismicity) can be used to forecast an earthquake hazard. These distributions in space, time, and magnitude can be studied in a va...
Understanding Long-Term Earthquake Behavior through Simulation
Found in: Computing in Science & Engineering
By Eric M. Heien,Michael Sachs
Issue Date:September 2012
pp. 10-20
Understanding earthquake behavior is crucial for predicting earthquakes' effects. One way of understanding long-term earthquake behavior is through simulation. Virtual California is a program developed to generate ensembles of earthquakes in a specified fa...
