Earthquakes: History History and Technology

[USGS Logo]

The history of earthquake monitoring technology and research is closely linked to the history of California earthquakes. California earthquakes are closely monitored with state-of-the-art equipment searching for any early warning signs that might someday be used to forecast earthquakes.

The U.S. Geologic Survey maintains the Parkfield seismic experiment site, highlighting attemps at forecasting earthquakes and state-of-the-art technology.
