TALK about big. Chile’s magnitude 8.8 earthquake shook the region so violently that it may leave a legacy of volcanic eruptions, and could even have shortened the length of a day. Charles Darwin was among the first to suggest that large earthquakes increase volcanic activity. In his records, he notes that a Chilean quake in February 1835 appeared to resurrect inactive volcanoes, and cause eruption rates to rise. Last year, David Pyle at the University of Oxford and his colleagues confirmed that this was a real effect in Chile. In particular,
