Detecting Earthquakes From the Air
September 2, 2021 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pmFree
Explore Earth: Detecting Earthquakes…while in the Air?
The most powerful U.S. earthquake in 50 years, an 8.2-magnitude tremor, recently occurred in Alaska. Typically, ground-based instruments provide data for both alerts and study of Earth’s internal geology. But what if scientists could detect seismic activity while airborne?
In this webinar, we’ll explore a balloon-based technique that detects low-frequency sound waves from earthquakes, and its potential use on other planets. Relevant instructional resources will also be included.
