Seismic Zones and Earthquakes Hazards in the Central U.S., Falls of the Ohio State Park
Start Date: 2/12/2020Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Date: 2/12/2020End Time: 3:30 PM
Event Description:

Damaging earthquakes that affect the central U.S. occur infrequently compared to active tectonic plate boundary zones like western California, but their effects extend over much greater areas. Thus, seismic hazard is of concern in the central U.S. Dr. Seth Carpenter will present the current state of knowledge about the sources of dangerous earthquakes in the central U.S. and the types of hazards they can create. Ongoing investigations at the University of Kentucky of earthquakes and their effects, including the real-time seismic monitoring network operated by the Kentucky Geological Survey will be discussed.

This program is free with regular Interpretive Center admission.
