Southern California is ground zero for the study of earthquakes. USC serves as headquarters for the Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC), one of the world's leading centers for the study of earthquake science.

Learn from James Dolan, associate professor of earth sciences in the USC College of Letters, Arts & Sciences and member of SCEC, about the faults beneath our feet — why we have earthquakes in California, where the major faults are and how they store and release seismic energy in large, damaging shakers. Learn too how all we've learned about seismic hazards have actually made us safer today than just 20 years ago.
