Geology Open Night Lecture: Superstorm Sandy: Seismology Knows Best
Start Date: 9/27/2013Start Time: 7:30 PM
End Date: 9/27/2013

Event Description

Speaker: Lianxing Wen, theoretical and observational seismologist and geodynamicist

Superstorm Sandy was the second-costliest hurricane in United States history, killing at least 286 people along its path and causing damage in excess of $68 billion, a total surpassed only by Hurricane Katrina. The tracking of a hurricane has traditionally relied on satellite monitoring. The on-land monitoring stations are usually far away from the hurricane center, reducing their effectiveness. This talk will present a new way to track hurricanes using ground seismic data.
