Where We Stand in Earthquake Prediction | Marine A. Denolle || Radcliffe Institute

As part of the 2018–2019 Fellows' Presentation Series at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Marine A. Denolle RI '19 expresses her hope that—with new methods, through harnessing the data, and by expanding on short-term term forecasting—one day we may potentially be able to predict an earthquake.

Denolle is a seismologist focused on understanding large earthquakes and their resulting ground motion. Her research has mostly investigated the seismic radiation from large plate-boundary earthquakes and the amplification of their ground motion in the urban sedimentary basin. She is an assistant professor of earth and planetary sciences in the Harvard Faculty of Arts and Sciences and a 2018–2019 Radcliffe Alumnae Fellow.
