California & The Big One – Apr 28

Scientists know with certainty that California will experience large earthquakes in the future. Earthquakes are often depicted in the media and popular culture, but which aspects of these depictions are factual, and which are fictitious? We cannot yet predict earthquakes, so what can we do? How can we prepare?

Speaker William Hawley is a geophysicist with UC Berkeley's Earth & Planetary Science Department. He is also a Wonderfest Science Envoy.
