April 17, 2013
LocationKimball Theatre, Merchant's Square
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!
