Question

Earthquakes are one of the most fear-inducing geological phenomena. Just as with other geological hazards, a large amount of scientific time and resources has been spent on trying to predict and minimize the results of these events. Please review the section in the course content on Earthquake Prediction and then read the following two short articles regarding an earthquake in Italy in 2009.

  • http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/10/22/us-italy-earthquake-court-idUSBRE89L13V20121022
  • http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/italy-abruzzo-earthquake-scientist-trial/

Discussion Questions:

  1. What were the warning signs before the 2009 earthquake in Italy? How as geologists should we react to warning signs like these?
  2. Given the statements by both the prosecutors and the scientists, what, if any, consequences should there be for the scientists? Why?
  3. As we have discussed a couple of times this semester, the way scientists use terms and discuss science is often very different from the general public. How did this miscommunication lead toward the events that followed and how could the discourse between scientists and the general public be improved?
