Volunteers Moved To Help In Earthquake Study

Volunteers across southern California are helping the U.S. Geological Survey keep track of seismic movement. Through the NetQuakes program, families are installing shoe-box sized sensors in their homes. These monitors measure ground movement and then send measurements to the USGS over the Internet.
