Stuff we linked to on Twitter last week

A post by Chris RowanA post by Anne Jefferson


The big earthquake news this week has obviously been the magnitude 6.3 earthquake that hit Christchurch. For those interested, Chris has been adding links to the latest information, images and videos to his initial post on the quake. But he would also like to highlight this BBC article on the aftermath of the magnitude 8.8 earthquake that shook Chile a year ago today, which illustrates how the road to recovery following a major quake – both physical and psychological – is a long and hard one. And, as a former Pacific Northwest resident, Anne was fascinated by the parallels between the Christchurch earthquake and the little appreciated seismic hazards in Portland, Seattle, and Corvallis, which are discussed in this Oregonian article.


  • Erik Klemetti highlights the latest media volcanic reporting fail: a study on how volcanic tremor may predict eruptions becomes ‘Mt. Baker is overdue!’ Sigh, indeed.
