Product description

The devastating effects of earthquakes have been seen throughout history, and the damage of these ground-trembling natural disasters still creates havoc today. Scientists are developing new instruments to detect earthquakes before they happen. And since earthquakes cannot be prevented, they are also developing new methods to prepare for the extreme shaking. These advancements, along with advance warning systems, are the future of seismology and could help save lives.
