Speaker:
Dr. John Vidale
Former Director - Pacific Northwest Seismic Network
Current Director - Southern California Earthquake Center

Abstract:
Sudden mayhem. Tremendous impact. Unpredictable disruption. Is it any wonder earthquakes reserve a dark corner in our nightmares?

The Pacific Northwest is vulnerable to several shades of shakes:
• giant coastal quakes,
• isolated, 50-km-deep pops, and
• crustal rips that could tear Seattle’s (or Tacoma’s, or Olympia’s, or Portland's) downtown apart.

The University of Washington’s M9 Project, is making the repercussions of PNW quakes clearer—and both less and more frightening.

John will review these scenarios, place them in a geophysical and hazard perspective, and review recent developments.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. Webinars are archived for later viewing at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLD4D607C2FA317E6D
