    Connectedness, as in "can we get there from here", is a fundamental concept, both in actual space and in various abstract spaces. Consider a long ladder in a right-angled corridor: can it get round the corner? Calling it a corridor implies that it is connected...

    Partners: UNIVERSIDAD DE CHILE, NRCan, IFM GEOMAR, Geophysical Institute of Peru (IGP), University of Liverpool

    The Peru-Chile subduction zone hosts many large earthquakes. A M8.8 earthquake occurred in northern Chile in 1877, and since then, no major event had re-ruptured the area prior to April 2014. The 500 km-long zone has therefore become known as the "North Chile seism...
