Expedition Background

Initially, we used satellite data to map the traces of faults. In the field, we planned to document these fault and educate the community about earthquake hazards and how to live with earthquakes and minimize danger.


Many people are afraid of earthquakes, but they are the reason we have access to all of our resources: hydrocarbons, minerals, etc. We just need to learn to live in hazard zones safely!
