Borehole project in Italy will help answer questions about enigmatic faults

Italy has experienced several deadly earthquakes in recent years. They all occurred within a complicated fault system that challenges our models for fault behavior. An array of instruments has been deployed across the region to help geoscientists around the world study these faults. And with support from UNAVCO, the latest addition to that array is a number of borehole strainmeters.
