Learn about earthquakes in Arizona – and beyond

The EarthScope National Office, ASU's School of Earth and Space Exploration and the Great Arizona ShakeOut invite you to attend a free public lecture program about earthquakes.

"Earthquakes in Arizona ... and Beyond!" will take place from 7 to 9 p.m., Oct. 9, in the Marston Exploration Theater, Interdisciplinary Science and Technology Building IV (ISTB4), on ASU's Tempe campus.

ASU scientists will discuss the science of earthquakes, review recent earthquakes around the world, explain new techniques for earthquake detection, and present information on historic earthquakes in our area. There will also be an amazing 3-D tour of earthquakes around the world.

In comparison with California, Nevada and Utah, major earthquakes in Arizona are infrequent, but each year, hundreds of earthquakes do occur in and around Arizona. Taking steps now to prepare your family and home will help mitigate the effects of moderate to severe earthquake shaking, and will make you more aware of earthquakes that might affect your family and friends in even more earthquake-prone areas.

Space in the Marston Theater is limited, and seats will be first-come, first-served. Parking is available beside ISTB4 in Lot 44, as well as in the Rural Road parking structure; parking is $3 per hour.
