Lawrence Berkeley Nat’l Lab: New Sensor Could Shake Up Earthquake Response Efforts

After the most recent series of earthquakes in Southern California, Lawrence Berkeley National Labs has put out a news release describing their recent work (in conjunction with University of Nevada-Reno) developing optical sensor technology that can be used to speed up the time needed to evaluate the post-earthquake damage to buildings, and assess whether they are safe enough to enter or require red-tagging.

For more information, the full article can be found on the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab website.
