New Study shows linked fault lines in S. California; M 7.4 quake possible

A fault system that runs from San Diego to Los Angeles is capable of producing up to magnitude 7.3 earthquakes if the offshore segments rupture and a 7.4 if the southern onshore segment also ruptures, according to an analysis led by Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California San Diego.

The Newport-Inglewood and Rose Canyon faults had been considered separate systems but the study shows that they are actually one continuous fault system running from San Diego Bay to Seal Beach in Orange County, then on land through the Los Angeles basin.

QuakeFinder has 5 sensors within 12 miles of the now-combined fault lines. Past research indicates electromagnetic signals of a large imminent earthquake can be detected at this distance. QuakeFinder is making significant strides in the data analysis of our captured earthquakes in the quest to develop a forecasting algorithm. When developed, QuakeFinder will be operationally monitoring the Newport-Inglewood/Rose Canyon fault.

China to launch an earthquake research satellite similar to QuakeSat

Nearly 15 years after Stellar Solutions and QuakeFinder launched and operated the world’s first commercial cubesat, QuakeSat, China and Italy have partnered to launch a similar satellite this year to monitor electromagnetic phenomena as precursors to earthquakes.  The CSES (China Seismo-Electromagnetic Satellite) contains multiple instruments including magnetometers with the intent of investigating upper atmospheric activity related to seismic events.  For more information on QuakeSat, see:  https://www.quakefinder.com/science/about-quakesat/.  For more information on CSES, see:  http://cses.roma2.infn.it/node/18.
