Using ultrasound technology to estimate impact of earthquakes

Posted on Friday, March 9, 2018

In a new study published in the March 7th edition of Science Advances, Pascal Audet, Associate Professor of Earth Sciences at the University of Ottawa, and Banting Fellow Andrew Schaeffer, describe how they used technology akin to ultrasonography - an imaging technique using sound-waves to view an internal structure – to finally confirm how the friction responsible for earthquake rupture varies downward along the fault line.
