Does One Big Earthquake Lead to Another?

Paul Johnson
Geophysics Group-Earth and Environmental Sciences, Los Alamos National Laboratory

While large earthquakes have occurred throughout the Earth's history, their number has dramatically increased in the last ten to fifteen years.

  • What is it that makes the earth move under our feet?
  • How is it that earthquakes can cause other earthquakes?
  • Can human activities, such as "fracking," also trigger earthquakes?

This lecture was held during November 2014, in multiple locations.
