Second‐order analysis of marked inhomogeneous spatiotemporal point processes: Applications to earthquake data - Iftimi - - Scandinavian Journal of Statistics - Wiley Online Library
"To analyze interactions in marked spatiotemporal point processes (MSTPPs), we introduce marked second‐order reduced moment measures and K‐functions for inhomogeneous second‐order intensity‐reweighted stationary MSTPPs. These summary statistics, which allow us to quantify dependence between different mark‐based classifications of points, depend on the specific mark space and mark reference measure chosen. Unbiased and consistent minus‐sampling estimators are derived for all statistics considered, and a test for random labeling is indicated. In addition, we treat Voronoi intensity estimators for MSTPPs. These new statistics are finally employed to analyze an Andaman Sea earthquake data set."

The Earthquake That Will Devastate the Pacific Northwest | The New Yorker
"At approximately nine o’ clock at night on January 26, 1700, a magnitude-9.0 earthquake struck the Pacific Northwest, causing sudden land subsidence, drowning coastal forests, and, out in the ocean, lifting up a wave half the length of a continent."


"The Pacific Northwest has no early-warning system. When the Cascadia earthquake begins, there will be, instead, a cacophony of barking dogs and a long, suspended, what-was-that moment before the surface waves arrive."

UW seeks Seattle volunteers to host earthquake detectors at their homes |
The University of Washington is looking for citizens volunteers to open their doors to mini seismic stations for about three to six weeks, in order to measure how the Puget Sound basin amplifies shaking from a large earthquake. Alex Hutko, a research scientist with the UW's Pacific Northwest Seismic Network, is quoted.

Volunteers asked to give up a little floorspace in Seattle to help scientists better map seismic data | GeekWire
Researchers with the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network are looking for volunteers to help scientists better understand and map the Seattle Basin, a roughly 4-mile-deep area filled with soil and soft rock that makes the urban core especially vulnerable to seismic shaking. Paul Bodin, a research professor of Earth and space sciences, is quoted.

Japanese drill ship fails to reach the earthquake-generating zone | Nature
Japan’s flagship ocean-drilling research vessel, Chikyu, has drilled deeper into the ocean floor than ever before. But it failed to achieve its ultimate goal of penetrating 5,200 metres beneath the sea floor, into the realm where two tectonic plates meet and cause enormous earthquakes. Harold Tobin, director of the UW-based Pacific Northwest Seismic Network, is quoted.

New study finds Seattle is even less prepared for mega quakes than previously thought | The Stranger
Scientists have found that the shaking likely to be generated by a big earthquake on the Cascadia subduction zone is worse than previously thought — and Seattle's current building codes aren't equipped to handle it. Nasser Marafi, a postdoctoral research in civil and environmental engineering at the UW, is quoted.
