  • The EarthScope transportable array is planned to begin deployment in Alaska in 2014. Detection of more small events will allow for better estimation of rates of seismicity and earthquake hazard.
  • Broadband seismology has changed radically over the last 30 years, from researchers with a large seismological apparatus in their basement vaults to deploying a very broadband seismometer on an Antarctic ice sheet in the brief time it takes to shut off and restart a helicopter!
