Earth Institute scientists are involved in long-term projects to study continued earthquake risk in Haiti and surrounding countries, and to aid reconstruction and development. Our Haiti Earthquake pages: http://blogs.ei.columbia.edu/blog/tag/haiti-earthquake/ contain continually updated resources for journalists. Seismologists, natural-disaster experts and others continue to provide interviews, images and essays on the implications and outlook. These include assessments of future quake risk; quick links to published media; reports from staff who were in Haiti; and opinion pieces.
For interviews, journalists may call scientists directly or through press officers (below).
