What do SALSA and the Alpine Fault have in common, you ask? Not too much, unless you fancy adding some salsa to your emergency supplies! (AF8 repost)

In this case the SALSA Project stands for “Southern Alps Long Skinny Array” and refers to a series of seismometers installed late last year along the West Coast of the South Island – from Piopiotahi Milford Sound to Maruia – stretching 500km along the straight (skinny) part of the Alpine Fault. This research will help us understand what the shaking from the next large Alpine Fault earthquake will feel like.
