Earthquake Forecasts

We’ve been able to see maps of recent earthquake activity before (see previous entries: 1, 2), but now there’s a map of forecasted earthquake activity in California over the next 24 hours. From the wire story: “The earthquake forecast maps are created by considering a variety of factors, including monitoring the San Andreas Fault and other active faults in California with seismic instruments. Scientists also factor in any recent history of small and large temblors as well as aftershocks, on those same faults.” Via MAKE: Blog.
