Earthquake Seminar


(GEOL 800, 3 Credit Hours, Recitation)









The earthquake seminar begins with a survey of four to five significant historical earthquakes, selected for showing a variety of hazards and geologic settings. We then examine some recent earthquakes and earthquake-prone regions with a view toward how well the local populations have prepared for them. We make extensive use of the world wide web to view current and recent events, and to examine web sites dedicated to earthquake research. Students make both informal and formal presentations during the semester.

This course is for graduate students and advanced undergraduates in Geology, Geography, History, and Engineering.

Dr. Clark teaches this course every few years.
