Team Earthquake reflects on how researchers use seismometers on the Earth’s surface to identify the source of earthquakes.


Marija looks at the source of earthquakes using ground motion recorded by seismometers on the Earth’s surface. Earthquakes are a result of rocks breaking under stress. When they occur, seismic waves travel through the Earth carrying information about the source, and the rocks the waves go through. Marija is mostly interested in unusual earthquakes from volcanic and geothermal areas, which can involve crack opening and fluid flow.



Eleanor’s arts practice aligns with science, in that she is interested in unfolding stories of advanced knowledge within the complexity of scientific information. Eleanor completed her PhD at the National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science (CPAS), ANU and has just spent two years working in Taiwan as a Professor in Technology and Arts.  Having had personal experiences of earthquakes in Taiwan, collaborating with Marija was a great coincidence and an opportunity to find out more about earthquake research. The design reflects the seismic waves travelling through the earth as energy source, particularly noting technological data and algorithmic code, as the hidden aspects of innovative mapping and location tools.

    We produce high quality shirts so you can wear them everyday and spark all of those science-ey conversations.

    Our shirts are made from a mid weight, 180 GSM, 100% combed cotton (aka a great shirt). They are also preshrunk to minimise shrinkage (phew).

    Shirts are sourced through AS Colour as they have high quality products and transparent ethical processes, see here.

    To minimise our enviromental impact our shirts are printed on demand with water-based inks and are shipped in home-compostable packaging (yay compost!).

    Shirty Science wants to change the world one shirt at a time.

    We use our profits to help organisations that are supporting diversity in STEM. We do this the only way we know how – making shirts!

    You can see all our Change Maker shirts here. All profits from the sale of these shirts go directly to the organisation the shirt is about.
