Anatomy of an Earthquake

A new resource which is narrated by Professor Iain Stewart, and has been created in collaboration with NERC...
A great little resource

Details here:
A Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) film exploring the anatomy of an earthquake. What happens when a seismic hazard deep beneath the Earth's surface meets a vulnerable population above? And as people around the world continue to flock towards urban centres, how can our mega-cities prepare for the looming threat of a direct seismic strike?

Presented by: 
Professor Iain Stewart (Plymouth University)

Created by:
Shadow Industries 

Written by: 
Professor Iain Stewart (Plymouth University)
Luke Wilmot (Shadow Industries)

Alex Peel (NERC)

With thanks to:
Dr Susanne Sargeant (British Geological Survey)
Dr Roger Musson (British Geological Survey)

Created in partnership with the British Geological Survey and the Earthquakes Without Frontiers project.

Thanks Lauren. I hope it's the first of a number of resources that come out from this source.
