Advancements in Earthquake Response
- Dr. David Wald, USGS Golden
The U.S. Geological Survey is continuing to develop new and improved tools for post-earthquake information and response. A new system just made public, PAGER (Prompt Assessment of Global Earthquakes for Response), automatically entifies earthquakes that will be of societal importance, well in advance of news accounts. PAGER builds on 'Did You Feel IT', ShakeMap and other rapid earthquake information and now plays a primary alerting role for global earthquake disasters.

Unravelling the History of the Knotted San Andreas Fault
- Dr. Katherine Kendrick, USGS Pasadena
Landscapes in the San Gorgonio Pass preserve clues about the history of faulting through this complex region. Deciphering these clues from the streams and slopes can help us in understanding the behavior of the San Andreas Fault in Southern California.
