Dave Bowman, Geology, and Greg Childers updated the college on the aftermath of the Sendai earthquake and tsunami and the resulting forced closure of area nuclear facilities.

From their abstract: The magnitude 9.0 March 11, 2011 Japan Earthquake is the worst natural disaster in the history of modern Japan. This special seminar outlined our preliminary knowledge of what happened in the earthquake and ensuing tsunami, and explored the risks we face from earthquakes in southern California. The damage to Japanese nuclear power plants and its implications for California was also presented.

Standing room only, and the Q & A went on for 45 mins. Excellent presentation, gentlemen. Thank you!

Note:  A video of the presentation is now available.  Also, an excellent article describing the seminar appears in the March 22 Inside CSUF.

If you missed this seminar, you can catch their update at Fullerton Library on Wednesday evening March 30 at 6:30p.
