Weekend Update- Predicting Earthquakes?

Hello Everyone,

The past few days have been very busy for Mike and I.  Mike has been busy tying all of the details for his trip together and I have been engaged in other projects.  We want to thank everyone who has stopped in so far, and let you know that a lot of good content, and really the entire adventure itself, is still on its way.

Today I wanted to share this scientific article about the atmosphere above the Pacific Ocean before the earthquake struck.

According to data collected from an atmosphere monitoring system, the temperature in the ionosphere above the epicenter dramatically increased days before the quake struck.  This finding has led some to hypothesis on ways to predict future quakes by using similar technology.  For a more detailed description of how this data may be translated, check out http://www.technologyreview.com/blog/arxiv/26773/.

It would be a great legacy if we can use the data from the Tohoku earthquake to help save the lives of others in the future.
