Scientist in the Spotlight: Earthquakes with Katherine Whidden

Friday, July 19, 2013 - 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Life Gallery - Naturalist Lab

We’ve all heard that it’s just a matter of time before the “big one” hits Utah, but when will the earthquake occur and what will happen when it does? Join research seismologist Katherine Whidden to learn why seismologists think that a big earthquake is coming, see simulations seismologists use to show the outcomes of earthquakes that have different magnitudes and epicenters, and learn how to prepare your house and family for an earthquake.
