Dr. Kristen St. John has been elected a Fellow by the Geological Society of America and Dr. Eric J. Pyle has been elected a Fellow by the Geological Society of London.
St. John and Pyle had to be nominated by current Fellows in each organization to be considered for acceptance. Having access to literature that can be difficult to find in the U.S. and costly to obtain if not a Fellow is one the main benefits of becoming a Fellow of the Geological Society of London, Pyle said. "It will allow me to ramp up some of the things I am doing in my teaching," he said. Pyle, JMU's lone member of the Geological Society of London, said the honor also will enable him to expand on his research. Dr. Eric J. Pyle (Professor, Geology and Environmental Science) has been named a Fellow of The Geological Society (London).

"So each of these balloons is representing a different body of rock, and they're all locked together, I'm gonna turn one of these balloons, and I'm turning it but then I get a little, crack sound and that's the earthquake," said Pyle.
Dr. Eric Pyle with James Madison University's Geology Department explained the difference in power between the two quakes. "So I've got two balloons, and if this one is the Mineral quake, at about a 5.8, that would be the sort of energy released. But if I have a 6.0, there's a lot more energy released," explained Pyle. He said the two-tenths-point difference is roughly double the energy, which can be visibly seen by the differences in damage between Mineral and Napa. "So each of these balloons is representing a different body of rock, and they're all locked together, I'm gonna turn one of these balloons, and I'm turning it but then I get a little, crack sound and that's the earthquake," continued Pyle. Pyle also said that although we are more likely to have weaker earthquakes, the problem lies in the infrastructure on the East Coast. "There would be impact, particularly since the buildings here are not built like they would be in California, to compensate, to take up some of that energy," said Pyle.
