Lecture
What we have learned about Haiti and Chile using Seismology and Space Observations

Modern Methods of Observing Earthquakes: What we have learned about Haiti and Chile using Seismology and Space Observations.

This public lecture provided an overview of the results obtained from analyzing the information gathered on the recent earthquakes which struck Haiti (January 12, Mw 7.0) and Chile (February 27, Mw 8.8). We discussed what has been learned on those earthquakes from seismology, observations made from satellite systems and field observations. We also discussed how space techniques could in the future improve earthquakes monitoring and help mitigate their effects.
