News Item Manslaughter trial of seismologists in Italy highlights need for 'systematic earthquake forecasting,' says Stanford geophysicist
The manslaughter trial of six Italian seismologists highlights the need for scientists to put more effort into explaining their work to the public, says Stanford geophysicist Greg Beroza. He calls for seismologists to issue "earthquake forecasts" on an ongoing basis to help the public understand changes in the likelihood of a major earthquake occurring in a given region.
