Here is a rather self-aggrandizing news release, from my old alma mater, the University of Toronto. Although there are no details, I am assuming this has something to do with a previous article of mine on pressure tests of blocks of rock. (I did something similar for my Masters Degree). I'm also very interesting that my subject of Rock Mechanics has flitted away from Civil Engineering, and has found a home under seismology. I know Paul Young and am interested in his new position.
So now the world is safer and we can locate cities up on the slopes of active volcanoes. The view must be fantastic!
