The world's largest outdoor earthquake simulator, operated by structural engineers at the University of California San Diego, received a $16.3 million grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to upgrade the facility to expand its testing capabilities.
An award-winning team of researchers at the University of Arizona and partnering universities is working to develop buildings that will not collapse under the force of major earthquakes. The UA-led team is turning its attention from vertical to horizontal transfer of forces by examining a less-explored, but critically important, piece of the seismic puzzle — steel collectors.
A California Sea Grant-funded study provides the largest analysis of cliff erosion throughout the state and provides a new hazard index for determining which areas are at most risk.
