When the massive 9.0-magnitude earthquake struck Japan last March, Scripps Oceanography was listening. The Institution operates local, national and international seismic observing systems, each finely tuned for detecting earthquakes – from those in our backyard to ones on the other side of the globe. Join Scripps seismologist Frank Vernon as he describes two such projects: the USArray Transportable Array and the San Jacinto Fault Zone Experiment. Learn how Scripps scientists are "wiring" the earth to understand the rumblings of our dynamic planet. (#23548)
