RS helps Oklahomans get involved in monitoring earthquakes
Raspberry Shake is really shaking things up in Oklahoma!
Last year the Oklahoma Geological Survey (OGS, @OKgeology) acquired 100 Raspberry Shake 1D’s. OGS has since organized an educational program and is distributing their Shakes to schools and libraries across Oklahoma. See below for recent articles describing how OGS is bringing community-driven seismology to Oklahoma through the Bridging Local Outreach and Seismic Signal Monitoring (BLOSSM) program.

Oklahoma is home to one of the most seismically active regions in the USA. Raspberry Shake will help residents there see that it shakes all of the time and not just when there are felt events.
