Tulane Student Hopes Research Will Lead to Protection From Volcanos, Earthquakes

SarahOlivas.jpg

East Africa may be a long way from the Crescent City but it is top of mind for Tulane PhD student Sarah Oliva, who is studying data from volcanoes and earthquakes in that region. Her goal is a better understanding of how a 3,000-kilometer long deep valley– the East African rift system— formed. Ultimately, she hopes her research will enable her to work with scientists and help governments protect residents living near the rift.

Shake It Up: Human-Induced and Natural Earthquakes in Central U.S. Are 'Inherently Similar'

The stresses released by human-induced and naturally occurring earthquakes in the central United States are in many cases indistinguishable, meaning that existing tools to predict shaking damage can be applied to both types.
