$6M awarded for quake early warning research


The California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, University of California-Berkeley and University of Washington will receive $6 million, allowing researchers to better study a West Coast early warning system, reports NBC LA.

"The grant is a huge contribution to moving forward the science of earthquake early warning systems," said Thomas Heaton, director of the Earthquake Engineering Research Laboratory and professor of geophysics and of civil engineering at the California Institute of Technology.

"The technology and scientific expertise exist to create a sophisticated West Coast earthquake early warning system even more advanced than Japan’s," said Richard Allen, director of the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory and a UC Berkeley professor of earth and planetary science.
