Japan’s March 11th magnitude 9 Tohoku Earthquake — which caused a tidal wave and the ensuing Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant disaster — was one of the most powerful ever recorded and just happened to be in an extremely dense seismic instrument zone. In the midst of all of this information comes the first study of how rocks and soil beneath the Earth’s surface are affected by a shift this large. Students at the Georgia Institute of Technology have taken data about the rocks and soil and translated it into usable information for builders and architects which they believe will help build better earthquake resistant buildings in the future. Read on to find out what they’ve learned.
