UK researchers fly out to study Italian earthquake

Researchers from the British Geological Survey and the University of Edinburgh have travelled to Italy to investigate aftershocks following last week’s earthquake.

In particular, the UK scientists will be looking to deploy seismometers at the site to better understand the aftershocks that followed the earthquake that hit Amatrice and the surrounding area 100 kilometres north-east of Rome on 28 August. 

John McCloskey, of the school of geosciences at the University of Edinburgh, said that they were actively trying to get additional funding for “this vital work, now". He said he hoped that it would all be in place for the next big earthquake.
