The major earthquake that struck Japan in 2011 was not far offshore, triggering a devastating tsunami. If that earthquake had originated hundreds of miles offshore, how would the Japanese seismologists pinpoint the epicenter using their seismograph stations located throughout the country? Has the US Government made any improvements to increase warning time to America?s Coastlines? Why or why not?
