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.
