2010 Haiti Earthquake

Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) Senior Scientist Jian Lin and his colleagues continue to study the complex fault system in the Haiti region that triggered last January's magnitude 7 earthquake that killed more than 230,000 people. Their findings indicate that the quake actually may have increased stress in nearby fault sections. (Animation by Jack Cook and narration by Tim Silva, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
