Date/Time

Sep 28, 2017
07:00 PM until 08:45 PM

Description

College Lounge
Free and open to the public
Most people do not think of New York City when thinking of earthquakes.
Dr. Charles Merguerian, however, will discuss the history of earthquakes in
NYC and make the case that a large number of northwest-trending faults
throughout the bedrock of Manhattan should be considered active faults. Dr. Merguerian is Professor
Emeritus and former Chairman of Geology at Hofstra University (1981-2014), Visiting Research Fellow
at Yale University, and has a broad range of expert consulting experience with the United States
Geological Survey, the New York City DEP, Con Edison, and many private companies.
