This week there were many medium-sized earthquakes but the two largest were in the Western Pacific and off New Zealand. The United States also saw a high number of tremors.
Jennifer Young gained an Honours degree in Geography from Edinburgh University, where her studies included a range of topics in both physical and environmental geography.
She subsequently undertook and completed a BSc in Geosciences with the UK’s Open University, which allowed her to pursue her interest in large-scale earth processes, such as plate tectonics, and earth systems, such as climate and oceanography. Her course involved the preparation of a 5,000 word thesis on earthquake prediction.
