Universal scaling for big quakes The amount of energy released as a large fault ruptures provides some clues about the overall size of an earthquake. Meier et al. looked at this energy release for more than 100 large earthquakes. Although the overall size of an earthquake cannot be predicted from the rate of energy release, a minimum size can be estimated. Estimating this minimum size could add valuable seconds to early earthquake warning algorithms, helping to avoid damage and save people from… Expand
