If all that demonstration of Earthquake Early Warning in my last post got you all excited, you’re in luck. This morning the science videocast “Talk Nerdy to Me,” produced by Cara Santa Rosa for the Huffington Post, contains a an interview with prominent CalTech seismologist Dr. Thomas Heaton, who discusses California’s developing early warning system. The video is well produced, with archival footage and great editing. It discusses the basics of an early warning system, why it would be valuable and how it would be practical, and sort of discusses why it’s still in the works–and not yet implemented as in other countries–for CA.
Have a watch!
