SS#9 Brzinski and Daniels 2018 Sounds of Failure: Passive Acoustic Measurements of Excited Vibrational Modes

https://journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevLett.120.218003

Salutation: The authors literally uncover the sounds that are precursors to failure in sheared granular media. When geophysicists discover how to link this seismic, it is gonna change the game. Such elegant experiments and deep insight.

What was awesome? Excellent figures/documentation! Surprising! It’s a scientific frontier! It made a key connection for me!
