Strong shaking in Los Angeles expected from southern San Andreas earthquake
The southernmost San Andreas fault has a high probability of rupturing in a large (greater than magnitude 7.5) earthquake sometime during the next few decades. New simulations show that the chain of sedimentary basins between San Bernardino and downtown Los Angeles form an effective waveguide that channels Love waves along the southern edge of the San Bernardino and San Gabriel Mountains. Earthquake scenarios with northward rupture, in which the guided wave is efficiently excited, produce unusua
"The Torch or The Firehose: A Guide to Section Teaching, Spring 2009"
The Torch or The Firehose: A Guide to Section Teaching, by MIT Mathematics Professor Arthur Mattuck, is a guide to recitation teaching at MIT. During a typical recitation section, a teaching assistant (TA) meets with a small group of students to review the most recent lecture, expand on the concepts, work through practice problems, and conduct a discussion with the students. With good humor and sound advice, Professor Mattuck offers both novice and seasoned recitation instructors guidelines on h

Galaxy-Quasar Associations: Is the Big Bang Bung?
When we see a galaxy and a quasar near each other in the sky, it might be because they are really near each other, or it might be that they are far apart and just along the same line of sight. Tests performed by Alan Stockton (Astrophysical Journal 223:747-757, "The Nature of QSO Redshifts", 1978) on a sample of such pairs have shown that some galaxy-quasar pairs have the same redshift and so are accepted as being at the same distance. Other pairs with very different redshifts however have been

Urban Signatures: Sensible Heat Flux (WMS)
Big cities influence the environment around them. For example, urban areas are typically warmer than their surroundings. Cities are strikingly visible in computer models that simulate the Earths land surface. This visualization shows sensible heat flux predicted by the Land Information System (LIS) for a day in June 2001. Sensible heat flux is higher in the cities--that is, they transfer more heat to the atmosphere--because the surface there is warmer than in the surroundings. Only part of the g
