Researchers from Berkeley Lab, Lawrence Livermore Lab and UC Davis are building the first-ever end-to-end simulation code to precisely capture the geology and physics of regional earthquakes, and how the shaking impacts buildings
In response to the devastation in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria and the damage to Mexico City from the recent earthquake, Mayo Clinic has extended its support through a $250,000 donation to Americares.
Last week’s magnitude 7.1 earthquake near Puebla, Mexico, killed and injured hundreds of people and caused widespread damage to structures in Mexico City. Civil engineering professor Clint Wood, a geotechnical-engineering specialist, will travel to Mexico City this week to study the earthquake’s impact on buildings and infrastructure in the area.
Disaster relief workers searching for earthquake survivors in Mexico City are using technology developed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Department of Homeland Security's Science and Technology Directorate.
