Looking for the Quake in the Earth

WHOI geophysicist Jian Lin (in blue shirt) and colleagues examine geological evidence of past earthquakes near the Mediterranean coast of Algeria. Lin's work in that nation has been funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development to study basic earthquake mechanisms in the region and to train Algerian researchers in an effort to better assess earthquake risks and mitigate disasters in highly populated cities.
