[PAST EVENT] Finding Faults in Old Virginia: Tack Faculty Lecture
Wednesday, April 17th 2013
Kimball Theatre, Merchant's Square
Geologist Chuck Bailey '89 will talk about earthquakes, fault zones and the living earth under our feet in the spring 2013 installment of the university's Tack Faculty Lecture Series. It's free and the public is welcome.
Remember the earthquake of August 2011? That 5.8-magnitude quake caused $200-$300 million in damage. Was it a once-in-a-lifetime event, or are more unsettling times in store for us? In this Tack Faculty Lecture, Chuck Bailey will talk on the geology of Virginia and what geo-hazards lurk under our unsuspecting feet as well as some revelations about where big chunks of the Commonwealth came from originally. You won't want to miss the geological hors d'oeuvres!
