Megadisasters: What is the science and why do we need involvement of non-scientists?
October 14, 2014 7-9 PM
Wenatchee Valley Erratics Chapter of the Ice Age Floods Institute will meet at 7:00 P.M., Tuesday, October 14 at the Wenatchee Valley Museum, 127 South Mission, Wenatchee.
Our speaker is Dr. Susan Kiefer, emerita geologist U. of Illinois, a 1995 MacArthur Fellow, and author of The Dynamics of Disaster. Dr. Kiefer's talk, "Megadisasters: What is the science and why do we need involvement of non-scientists?," touches on the dangerous sides of living on Earth. Using topics from her book--landslides, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions, processes familiar to Northwesteners--she will show not only the mechanics of these events, but how we can plan and respond to them. Natural catastrophes are not becoming more frequent; there are simply more people living in disaster-prone areas. A 24-hour media barrage feeds that perception. Are Ice Age megafloods in our future? Panic!

Program is free and open to the public.
