We are no longer taking online registrations for this lecture. As a courtesy, we offer standby seating on a space-available basis beginning 15 minutes prior to the lecture's start time.

Sudden mayhem. Tremendous impact. Unpredictable disruption. Is it any wonder earthquakes reserve a dark corner in our nightmares? The Puget Sound is vulnerable to several shades of shakes: giant coastal quakes, isolated, miles-deep pops, and rips that could tear Seattle’s downtown apart.

UW’s M9 project, led by John Vidale, is making the repercussions of each type of quake clearer—and both less and more frightening. Vidale will share the latest research and prognoses, and offer insights on implementing early warning technologies in the Pacific Northwest, so we can gain a few seconds or even minutes before suffering the strongest shaking.

When:   Tues. Nov. 10, 2015; 7:30 p.m.
Where:   Kane Hall, Room 120 
4069 Spokane Lane
Seattle, WA 98105 
Cost:   Free, but advance registration is required.
