Northwest Shake, Rattle and Roll: The Science of Great Cascadia Earthquakes
Event Details
Date(s): November 1, 2016
Time: 5:30 PM  PST - 7:30 PM  PST
Location:
Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub 112 Southwest 2nd Avenue Portland, OR
 
 
Recent research has shown that Oregon and Portland will undergo a massive 9+ magnitude Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake in the future. Nationally recognized geophysicist Chris Goldfinger has studied a 10,000-year historical record of these earthquakes in marine sediments. His analysis leads him to predict that the northern Oregon coast and Portland faces a 15-20 percent chance of suffering a similar quake in the next 50 years. He has published more than 70 peer-reviewed scientific articles, and his work was featured in "The Really Big One" New Yorker article. He will talk about the science of these great earthquakes and discuss the odds that one will hit Portland in our lifetimes.

Goldfinger is a professor of Marine Geology at Oregon State University, College of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences.
