DAAC Study: Squeezing Water from Rock

Lauri J. Schmidt, Earth Observatory, a DIvision of NASA

This site from NASA’s Earth observatory features an article that discusses liquefaction, a process of compaction caused by earthquakes that forces water out of pore spaces in some types of sediment. Using studies of modern earthquakes that have produced liquefaction, scientists can better interpret the geologic record of liquefaction during past events. This helps us anticipate what is likely to happen in the future.
