August 6th, The Science of Earthquake Preparedness 7-9pm Straub Hall, University of Oregon.

The recent New Yorker magazine article, “The Really Big One,” about the possibility of a magnitude 9.0 earthquake in the Pacific Northwest has sparked intense public interest in earthquake science and emergency preparedness. University of Oregon geologists Rebecca Dorsey and Douglas Toomey will host a public forum to explain the science behind earthquake preparedness, answer common questions and detail the potential risks to residents of the region. Panelists will discuss the types of earthquakes that occur in the Pacific Northwest, and the history of the Cascadia subduction zone, as well as recent advances toward regional preparedness and efforts to expand a West Coast Earthquake Early Warning System. Additionally, it will provide: - Likely scenarios for a major regional earthquake – An examination of how scientists study earthquakes and develop probability models – Tips on preparedness
