The following roundup of science stories appearing each day in the general
media is compiled by the Media Resource Service, Sigma Xi's referral service
for journalists in need of sources of scientific expertise.

from The San Francisco Chronicle

An international team of earthquake scientists has produced for the first
estimates of seismic hazard levels for the entire world. Unveiled at a
meeting of the America Geophysical Union this week, the new global seismic
map is the result of nearly a decade of work.

While the map includes many of the best-known seismic zones, such as
California's San Andreas Fault, it also incorporates many more remote and
little-known areas.

Alternately, go to, click on "science" in left column, click 
on "Seismic Threat to World Outlined" in right column and you're there.
