Basingstoke IVC Science Cafe invite you to this free Royal Society talk titled "Earthquakes, pasta and statues"
ADVANCE BOOKING IS REQUIRED FOR THIS TALK.
Cafe Scientifique is a national movement for science and technology in casual settings: each has its own character but all are fun, engaging, informal and explore fascinating ideas in science and technology.
Cyber Cafe Sci is online - capturing the cafe experinece through the informal Gather platform that lets you watch, listen, and join in if you wish.
At this event we join a conversation with Dr Wendy Bohon - earthquake geologist - to talk about earthquakes, pasta, statues and whatever else takes our interest (and yes, it's all relevant to earthquake geology...)
Wendy Bohon is a geologist who studies earthquakes and works to improve the communication of hazard and risk before, during and after rapid onset geologic hazards.
She has worked on many tectonics related projects in her career, including the B4 LiDAR project in Southern California, climate and tectonics studies in Northwestern Argentina, GPS deployment projects in Bolivia, thrust fault studies in Argentina and the tectonic evolution of the southwestern margin of the Tibetan Plateau in India. Her research interests include geomorphology, paleoseismology, landscape evolution, geologic hazards communication and geoscience education. She is currently the geologist and Senior Science Communication Specialist for the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology.
