In this episode we talk with Folarin Kolawole from the University of Oklahoma about his research into how the reactivation of faults can lead to earthquakes in places where they’ve never before occurred in recorded history. He co-authored the article “Aeromagnetic, gravity, and Differential Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar analyses reveal the causative fault of the 3 April 2017 Mw 6.5 Moiyabana, Botswana, earthquake” with Estella Atekwana, Sean Malloy, Sarah Stamps, Raphaël Grandin, Mohamed Abdelsalam, Khumo Leseane, and Elisha Shemang. The article was published in September 2017 in Geophysical Research Letters.
