Quaking the Delaware

Graduate students at the University of Maryland Seismology Lab sprung into action following the M4.1 earthquake that struck Dover, Delaware on November 30, 2017. The very next day, they were out in the field, deploying seismometers that would be recording aftershocks for the next 6 weeks. Thank you Erin, Chao, Phillip, Karen, Pete, and Quancheng for carrying out the deployment and collecting valuable data on East Coast seismicity!
