Media report on earthquake study by team including Gallant

Oregon news outlets including The World, The Tillamook Headlight Herald and KTVZ NewsChannel 21 carried an Oregon State University report about an Indonesia earthquake study. Findings by a team led by an Oregon State University geotechnical engineer are paving the way toward engineering techniques that could keep Pacific Northwest residents more safe during the eventual Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake, according to the reports. The National Science Foundation-supported team was led by OSU and included Aaron Gallant, an assistant professor of geotechnical engineering at the University of Maine. The team traveled to Indonesia to study the aftermath of the magnitude 7.5 Palu-Donggala quake that occurred in September 2018, the article states. The team’s report was recently published by the Geotechnical Extreme Events Recognizance Association.
