 Virtual Earthquake Model

Scientists based out of Stanford University are claiming that 'virtual earthquakes' produced by weak vibrations generated by the Earth's oceans can be used to predict the ground movement and the threats from real quakes to buildings. Perhaps more pressingly, based on their study, the researchers are warning that there will be a major quake south of Los Angeles, and that it will create stronger than expected ground movement. The research is published in the Jan. 24 issue of the journal Science
