My piece for @caltechletters about our work @Caltech on the #Ridgecrest #earthquakes, led by @zach_ and with @eric_fielding and many others. The paper was just published in @sciencemagazine; here I talk about what we found, how we found it, and why it matters. (1/n)
(2/n) Some of the key takeaways: these were complex earthquakes, breaking through more than 20 faults, many of which were previously unmapped. Modern data and methods meant we could observe the earthquakes in unprecedented detail.
(3/n) Earthquakes like this mean real difficulty for determining the hazards that faults pose, because finding all the faults and knowing which path the rupture will take is impossible.

THREAD: Regarding the #RidgeCrestearthquake and #Coso #volcano there has been a lot of concern, mostly from misinformation broadcast by non-geologists, that the #earthquake sequence near #Ridgecrest, CA means an imminent eruption from the Coso Volcanic Field or was caused by it.
Coso is directly tied to the subject I was working on for my Ph.D. (geo.arizona.edu/Antevs/Theses/…), so I spent a lot of time getting to know it and its neighboring volcanoes and faults.
The following is a summary of what geoscientists know about Coso, how it is monitored, and what we can realistically expect from it. If this is at all useful to you, please feel free to share it.

(1) Thread: June 5th #earthquake near #Ridgecrest CA

I'm an earthquake survivor from NZ (2011) who will provide reporting & commentary below, just as soon as I can load the USGS pages properly.

This was big, shallow, & the city has 28k people.

(2) OK, have given up on the USGS website for now. Current USGS-sourced assessment of this EQ is:

Mag: 7.1 (severe)
Depth: 0.9km (half a mile, v. v. shallow)
Location: 17km NNE of Ridgecrest, CA (very close to city)
(3) I would be very surprised if there is no loss of life from this EQ.

185 people died in the Christchurch NZ EQ of 2/22/11. I was thrown across the room, but was fine, compared to others.

Ridgecrest: 28,000 + rural areas is a lot of people affected.
