Lessons From the Cariaco, Venezuela, Earthquake
June 3, 10:00 A.M. - Room 111
The 1997 earthquake in northeastern Venezuela, which killed 82 people, provided a rare opportunity to correlate a surface-rupturing quake with a known fault at depth, El Pilar, in an environment outside California and Japan. El Pilar is shown to behave differently from other well studied strike-slip fault systems, like San Andreas. Seismologists consider their findings an important breakthrough regarding a major, hazardous plate boundary fault zone. The earthquake also provided the opportunity to assess a natural hazard threat in a developing area. These risks are believed to be in some ways greater in the developing than in the developed world.
