California & The Big One – Dec 12

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?

Our speaker, Dr. William Hawley, is a geophysicist and a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Scholar at Columbia University. He is also a Wonderfest Science Envoy.
