Anticipating and Monitoring a Large Earthquake in Costa Rica Book

abstract

  • On 5 September 2012, a magnitude 7.6 earthquake occurred beneath the Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica, where geophysicists had anticipated a possible event and established a strategic observational network before 2012. The observations delineate the earthquake rupture area and refine seismic risk.
