Katrin Kleemann Publishes Article on The 1783 Calabrian Earthquake Sequence
Doctoral candidate Katrin Kleemann recently published an article on Arcadia entitled "Living in the Time of a Subsurface Revolution: The 1783 Calabrian Earthquake Sequence."
In 1783, a sequence of five strong earthquakes shook Calabria (Richter magnitudes 5.9 to 7.0). Later that year the Icelandic Laki fissure eruption blanketed parts of the northern hemisphere with a dry sulfuric fog. The most popular working theory at the time was that earthquakes in Italy had caused the fog due to a “subsurface revolution.”
Katrin also published a blog article about the same topic for the Tectonics and Structural Geology Divison's Blog of the European Geosciences Union.
