iPhone : A work in progress. Tsunami model for the M7.4 in Mexico last week constrained by InSAR, HR-GNSS and DART buoy data. Beautiful edge waves promoted by the flat shelf make for a long lasting tsunami

Twitter Web App : In this story, I describe what's going on with Delhi's geology that makes parts of it susceptible to shaking, where the faults are, and what you should do if you feel the world around you start to move. The answer is not "run outside" by the way. Drop. Cover. Hold on! 2/n

Twitter Web App : Friends in India! Did you feel the latest #delhiearthquake? If so, check out my latest on temblor about this ongoing EQ swarm, which has been updated to reflect this most recent shake. 1/n…
