Understanding Earthquakes Makes for Messy Science
by Susan Hough Originally published in the LA Times, May 13, 1994 For most people, direct exposure to scientific inquiry comes primarily from classes taken in junior or senior high school. In those classes, the process of science appears straightforward enough: you listen to the teacher, understand what is being taught and, if you do your homework, arrive at the same answer as everybody else, the answer in the back of the teacher's book. If you do an experiment right, you get the same results as everybody else. There is none of the subjectivity that a social-studies teacher might appear to use when she or he appraises your logic in an essay. Physical science is objective stuff: black or white, right or wrong. Except that it isn't. At the front lines of scientific research, results are often subject to interpretation, especially in fields that are inherently observational. In particular, earthquake studiesincluding seismology, geology, and tectonophysicsrarely dwell in unequivocal results.

aftershock. Any earthquake which occurs after a larger earthquake (a mainshock) within one rupturelength of the original fault rupture and before the seismicity rate in that area
http://www.scecdc.scec.org/glossary.html
aftershock
    Any earthquake which occurs after a larger earthquake (a mainshock ) within one rupture-length of the original fault rupture and before the seismicity rate in that area has returned to the background (pre-mainshock) level is generally considered an aftershock. For some earthquakes, a specific "aftershock zone" may be defined, in lieu of the one-rupture-length rule given above.
afterslip
    Aseismic slip, very similar to creep , that occurs along a fault ruptured by a large earthquake in the months following that event.
alluvium
    Loose material clay, silt, sand, gravel, and larger rocks washed down from hills and mountains and deposited in low areas.
Alquist-Priolo Act
Basin and Range
    An area of the southwestern United States characterized by roughly parallel mountain ranges and valleys, formed by a series of tilted fault blocks, and brought about by tectonic extension of the region. As is true of any region experiencing crustal extension, normal faulting is common here. (This name can apply generally to any zone of similar landforms and tectonics.)
blind thrust fault
    A shallow-dipping reverse fault which terminates before it reaches the surface. When it breaks, therefore, it may produce uplift, but never any clear surface rupture. Many still-unknown blind thrust faults may exist in southern California. Two examples of known blind thrust faults: the Elysian Park Thrust, which runs underneath downtown Los Angeles and the Northridge Thrust Fault, which ruptured in the 1994 Northridge quake.

It is designed to facilitate the development of strong-motion monitoring programs in order to provide critical quantitative information needed to rebuild cities following earthquake disasters. Without such programs, continued urbanization based on inadequate strong-motion information and poor seismic design and construction standards could result in catastrophic costs in loss of life and property from subsequent major earthquakes.

A Volcano Rekindled: The Renewed Eruption of Mount St. Helens, 2004-2006
Sherrod, D.R., Scott, W.E., and Stauffer, P.H. (editors), 2008. Mount St. Helens began a dome-building eruption in September 2004 after nearly two decades of quiescence. Dome growth was initially robust, became more sluggish with time, and ceased completely in late January 2008. The volcano has been quiet again since January 2008. Professional Paper 1750 describes the first 1Ĺ years of this eruptive activity, chiefly from September 2004 until December 2005. Its 37 chapters contain contributions of 87 authors from 23 institutions, including the U.S. Geological Survey, Forest Service, many universities, and local and State emergency management agencies. Chapter topics range widelyófrom seismology, geology, geodesy, gas geochemistry, and petrology to the human endeavor required for managing the public volcanic lands and distributing information during the hectic early days of a renewed eruption. MOUNT ST. HELENS returns to SLUMBER !!!

Related Category: Geology And Oceanography seismology [s I u j E , s I Pronunciation Key Applications of Seismology One aspect of seismology is concerned with measuring the speeds at which seismic waves travel through the earth. Past earthquake studies have shown that P, or primary/compressional, waves travel fastest through the earth; S, or secondary/transverse, waves cannot pass through liquids, allowing scientists to discern the earth's many boundary layers known as the crust, mantle, and core. For example, the disappearance of S waves below 1,800 mi (2,900 km) shows that the outer core of the earth is liquid. Seismologists also prepare seismic risk maps for earthquake-prone countries; these indicate the degree of seismic danger. In addition, seismologists use earthquake data to determine plate boundaries (see plate tectonics ); active earthquake areas generally coincide with plate margins, both destructive and growing, and transform

Nationality Irish Fields geologist Earth molten interior Richard Dixon Oldham (31 July 1858 ‚Äď 15 July 1936) was an Irish geophysicist and geologist who, in 1906, argued that the Earth must have a core as S waves were not able to travel as quickly through liquids nor through the Earth's interior as through less dense matter. (The identification of the core as molten is often attributed to Oldham, but that came later.) Oldham had wide interests and, while researching aspects of the Rhone Valley, encountered mention of the loculus of Archimedes or Stomachion . In a letter to Nature in March, 1926, he pointed out how the Stomachion board proposed by Heinrich Suter in translating an Arabic text could be reconciled with the fragment of Archimedes' Stomachion found in the Archimedes Palimpsest by subjecting it to a lateral stretch by a factor of two. The letter triggered a fad for the dissection puzzle.
