Japan Earthquake Things

Time lapse of aftershocks.  The rupture length is smaller than the entire plate edge.  Interesting, could've had an M9.2, not that it would have made any difference.

Strong Ground Motion

Wow!  No damn sensors.  Motions at Sendai only 30% g, and I think PGV only 20cm/s, but who knows?  Higher motions on the Tokyo basin.

An interesting take on what lessons should be learned and measures taken in California after the Japan mega quake.

I like the ending: "I am a comedian." I should use that!
