- ‘The Great Quake,’ by Henry Fountain
By Mary Ellen Hannibal - Friday Aug 11, 2017
Many of us remember the epic ground-shaking of the 1989 Loma Prieta quake, and no matter how many teams of engineers tell us not to, we worry about being anywhere near the sinking Millennium Tower when the next big one hits.Fountain, a reporter and editor at the New York Times, focuses much of his narrative on George Plafker, a U.S. Geological Survey scientist, who teased out lessons from the Good Friday quake to help establish fundamental concepts about the deep workings of the Earth.An unassuming technician who spent eight years of his childhood in a Brooklyn orphanage, Plafker is an everyman distinguished by curiosity and persistence.Fountain memorably evokes an era in which impoverished students happily crowded around their Svengali to hear tall geological tales while consuming beer, beans and bread at the Clam Broth House on Newark Avenue in Hoboken, N.J.The story of Plafker’s path to the Alaska quake is interspersed with a narrative explanation of how science has grappled with the shapes and placement of the continents and how they got that way.Wegener opined that the Earth was once comprised of a single supercontinent, a giant land mass he called Pangaea.[...] to the painstaking process by which science arrives at its certainties, an earthquake takes just a few minutes to reorder reality.Fountain sets the scene for an abrupt wake-up call, and his description of how it unfolds is gripping.Shock waves tore through pavement and buildings, and the land resembled a stormy sea.Frank Press, the head of the seismology lab at the California Institute of Technology, concluded that the quake was caused by a “dip-slip” fault, in which one block of crust moves past another vertically.Pressure mounts where the oceanic crust of the Earth slides under the continental crust, building friction until the strain becomes so great that there is a “sudden release of an enormous amount of stored up energy.”
