MyShake

MyShake's goal is to use the sensors in your smartphone to record earthquake shaking. By developing this capability the UC Berkeley Seismological Laboratory hopes to create a dense network that could one day provide warnings prior to shaking. The data will also be used to study earthquake processes as part of our ongoing effort to reduce the impact of future quakes.

Common Messages for Disaster Risk Reduction (Nepali)

Communication to the public is vital to ensure better preparedness. Work related to this currently exists under all Flagships and is carried out through a variety of mechanisms by multiple partners. By better coordinating such public information work, sharing information on work already planned, and harmonizing messages and approaches, we would hope to have greater and more sustained reach.
