Earthscope

Supported by the National Science Foundation, EarthScope is an ambitious undertaking designed "to apply modern observational, analytical and telecommunications technologies to investigate the structure and evolution of the North American continent and the physical processes controlling earthquakes and volcanic eruptions." This is certainly no small task, and as such it is no surprise that some of their various undertakings include drilling into the San Andreas Fault and installing different pieces of scientific equipment at key sites, such as volcanoes, around the continent. A good way to get some sense of the project activities is to take a look at the image base, which features projects "in action" across the continent. While the project's scientific database is not online yet, visitors would do well to take a look at the publications area. Here they will have access to press coverage of project activities, along with some basic fact sheets that outline various project endeavors.
