Critical Issues Webinar: Communicating Cascadia’s Earthquake Risk

Date/Time: October 16th, 201510:00-11:00am U.S. Pacific time / 1:00-2:00pm U.S. Eastern Time

Geoscience research is at the forefront of characterizing the earthquake risks associated with the Cascadia subduction zone in the Pacific Northwest. This webinar will inform listeners of the science and its implications for policy decisions and resiliency efforts. During the webinar, the three presenters will provide an overview of what we know about the Cascadia subduction zone and the associated earthquake risk, how this information is used to guide policy decisions, how the science should be communicated, what state and local governments are doing to address the risks, and what more could be done to better protect the Pacific Northwest.

This webinar is co-sponsored by the U.S. Geological Survey, Western States Seismic Policy Council, and the Oregon Seismic Safety Policy Advisory Commission.

The webinar speakers include:
     Chris Goldfinger, Oregon State University
     Jeff Rubin, Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue
     Tom Brocher, Earthquake Science Center, U.S. Geological Survey
