The anatomy of an earthquake

Earthquakes are one of the planets most lethal natural forces“, says Professor Iain Stewart in his latest short film describing the anatomy of an earthquake.

The film has been made in association with the Earthquakes without Frontiers (EwF) project, a NERC funded multidisciplinary and multinational project, including CGS academics at the University of Leeds, to understand the earthquake hazard from Europe to far-east Asia.

An important part of this project involves informing and communicating the lessons learnt from the scientific to non-scientific community, particularly locals and government authorities in earthquake prone countries.
