ScienceNews: New study reveals 'Chile quake didn’t reduce risk'

Source(s):  ScienceNews - Society for Science & the Public 2000 (SCInews)

According to a scientific study of the 8.8-magnitude earthquake that hit Chile in February 2010, increased stress on the fault may in turn have increased the probability of another major to great earthquake there in the near future.

The study by geologist Stefano Lorito of Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology in Rome and his colleagues is available online in Nature Geoscience.
