IU Bloomington geophysicist explains the Napa earthquake.

August 24: Following the Napa earthquake this weekend, Professor Michael Hamburger did a few press interviews with the local NBC news affiliate WTHR in Indianapolis. He used the opportunity to plant a seed for a little press coverage of the OIINK project. Here’s the original story. There is a teaser at the end about OIINK, including a reference to the participating organizations. And then the follow up piece includes a visit to the G141 "Earthquakes and Volcanoes" class.
