Upcoming Webinar from the Committee on Solid Earth Geophysics
Tsunami Science: The view from modeling and observations
July 5 | 3:00PM - 4:00PM EDT

The National Academies and the Committee on Solid Earth Geophysics invites you to a webinar on the past and future of tsunami research on Tuesday, July 5 from 3:00PM to 4:00PM EDT. Large tsunamis of past decades have underscored the potential for extreme hazards impacts from these events, but also the multidisciplinary scientific challenges that face tsunami researchers and the advancement of their field. In this webinar, three experts will survey the state-of-the-art of tsunami science - a broad field that encompasses many disciplines, from advanced hydrodynamics, data science and machine learning, geophysical modeling and inversion, to geological field investigations that shed light on both past and recent events.

Speakers for this event are:

* Dr. Randall LeVeque, Professor Emeritus of Applied Mathematics, University of Washington

* Dr. Shuo Ma, Professor of Geophysics in the Department of Geological Sciences, San Diego State University

* Dr. Lydia Staisch, Research Geologist with the Geology, Minerals, Energy, and Geophysics Science Center, U.S. Geological Survey
Followed by a discussion period moderated by Dr. Diego Melgar, Committee on Solid Earth Geophysics Member
