UA Geosciences Professor Susan Beck (far right) and Geosciences postdoctoral researcher Rob Porritt (far left) with a local family in Ecuador who is hosting a seismic station after the April 2016 Mw=7.8 earthquake. The seismic stations are part of an NSF funded project to record aftershocks following the devastating earthquake. The global seismology group makes trips to check on the seismic stations every 2-3 months.
