Earthquake Early Warning, Preparedness and Safety (at Mary Winspear Centre)


Course description

Ocean Networks Canada is in a unique position to detect subduction earthquakes through the operation of sensor networks both on land and on the seafloor. Learn about the prototype earthquake early warning system already in place, and how it will be expanded and enhanced so that it can be used to provide early warning to the residents of southwestern B.C. Learn about how EEW will work and what the potential benefits are. Learn about earthquake safety and how to put together an earthquake kit.

There will also be an overview of the ocean observatories operated by Ocean Networks Canada including NEPTUNE, probably the largest wired ocean observatory in the world. You will learn about some of the instruments that have been installed on the seafloor and the ocean properties that are being measured, hear recordings we have made of whales, and view videos taken by the remotely operated submersibles we use to do our installations.
