In addition it contained information about the agency’s approach to climate change and how people could take steps to lower their own contributions to climate change.
The proposed method provides recommendations for selection of both individual and regionally located test sites, provides techniques for validation of field data for use in back-analysis, and presents a recently developed energy-based solution to back-calculate paleoearthquake magnitude and strength of shaking.
The proposed method allows investigators to qualitatively assess the influence of post-earthquake density change and aging.
However, the site has run into political headwinds before. Bush, updates to the site were frozen and then required to undergo White House review.
