When the earth moves, UTD listens

Did the earth move for you? Now you can get confirmation.

Geoscientists at the University of Texas at Dallas have installed a seismograph that will measure the magnitude of any earthshaking events in the area.

North Texas is pretty stable, so the device is more likely to pick up shimmies in hot spots like Mexico.

If there’s a big quake, it’ll be depicted on the seismograph’s monitor in the Founders Hall lobby.
