<p>David travels to Sendai, the city nearest the epicenter of the quake, where he witnesses the dynamic relationship between science and nature.&nbsp; This place has a long history of monitoring earthquakes because it&#8217;s a highly active seismic region. Here, at their sophisticated deep earth seismic monitoring lab, David learns that the equipment was not designed to measure a quake over an 8 on the Richter scale &#8211; they never thought it would need to. The Tohoku earthquake was a grave lesson in humility, and one that revealed the limits of seismic science. In<i>&nbsp;Journey to the</i>&nbsp;<i>Disaster Zone: Japan 3/11</i>&nbsp;David presents his quest for answers to the tragedy, and finds that innovative technology and the re-assessment of conventional thinking might turn a cataclysm into a blueprint for the future.&#65279;<br></p>
