Earthquakes are one of the great unsolved geological mysteries. Attempts to predict them have ranged from studies of Californias fault lines by USGS geologists to the work of an odd assortment of psychics and apocalyptics who base their sometimes startlingly accurate forecasts on everything from changes in the earths magnetic fields to the behavior of whales. The Myth of Solid Groundis a journey, both personal and cultural, through the world of earthquakes and earthquake prediction, one that seeks a middle ground between science and superstition, while also looking for a larger context in which seismicity might make sense. An excellent primer on the science of seismology, The Myth of Solid Groundlooks at earthquakes as the ultimate metaphor for living with impending disaster.
