“The Science and Pseudoscience of Earthquake Prediction”: The Kibbe Science Lecture with Heather Savage
Wednesday, November 29 | 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM | Visual Arts Center, Beam Classroom
The topic of this lecture is both timely and interdisciplinary. Earthquakes can have devastating impacts on human populations: over 9000 fatalities are attributed to the 2015 Nepal earthquake c. 150,000 to the 2010 Haiti earthquake, and the greatest suffering is often endured by populations living in poverty. Predicting earthquakes has thus been the primary objective of many researchers, including speaker Heather Savage.
