Due to the devastating earthquakes, the time consumed by the size of the damaged infrastructures is being studied, now this cheap sensor-based mobile accelerometer system can accelerate this process. The host Sarah Crespi speaks of the contribution of Lizzie Wade correspondent, how these sensory systems work and how they can help communities after the earthquake.
In another Earth shaking study, scientists downgrade the ancient Plateau altitude in Tibet. Most reconstructions calculate that the "roof of the world" was 4,500 meters tall at about 40 million years ago, but a new study suggests that it was 3,000 meters tall this time. Host Meagan Cantwell speaks with Svetlana Botsyun of a postdoctoral research team at the University of Germany in Tübingen, a new vision of the paleo-variance of his team and the shorter Plateau of Tibet's influence on the surrounding climate.
