Earthquake Science and Seismic Risk Reduction

What's the very first thing that normal humans, for whom newshounds are the proxy, ask once they meet a seismologist? it really is definitely not anything technical like "What was once the strain drop of the final earthquake within the Imperial Valley? " it's a sim­ ple query, which however summarizes the genuine calls for that society has for seismology.

In regions where the potential temperature of the particular isentropic surface is less than the earth’s surface potential temperature, the isentropic surface itself, though termed underground, is assumed to be contiguous with the earth’s surface. Thus, there are three classes of isentropic surfaces: one with B < $,(the minimum value of 8 observed at the earth’s surface everywhere), for which the surface is entirely underground; one with es0s 8 S BS, (the maximum value of f3 observed at the earth’s surface everywhere), for which the surface is partially underground; and one with O > Bsm everywhere, for which there is no underground region.
