Seismic Waves is a newsletter published by the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program. The topic in this edition of Seismic Waves advances in rapid earthquake assessment and alerting systems. "Over the past decade, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has made dramatic strides in translating seismic data into timely and actionable earthquake assessment and notification tools. This work is strengthening and affirming the role of seismic monitoring in reducing the death, suffering, damage, and disruption that can accrue in the aftermath of earthquakes."
