Lecture Series -- The Tortoise and the Hare: Slow vs. Fast Earthquakes
New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science
Albuquerque, NM
Share this event:

In the past decade, using sensitive monitoring networks, earthquake scientists have discovered some very unusual earthquakes. Like ordinary earthquakes, they occur as slip on the same faults, but they take a long time to unfold, such that they can be described as "slow."  Unlike ordinary earthquakes, which grow explosively in size with increasing duration, slow earthquakes, whether large or small, grow at a constant rate and have the potential to trigger large earthquakes. Their recent discovery implies that there is much still to learn about earthquakes.

Gregory Beroza received his B.S. in Geophysics from the University of California at Santa Cruz and his Ph.D. in Geophysics from MIT.  He is currently Wayne Loel Professor and Department Chair in the Department of Geophysics, Stanford University, as well as Deputy Director, Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) and Chair of the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) Planning Committee. His research is primarily concerned with the development and application of techniques for analyzing seismograms--recordings of seismic waves--in order to understand how earthquakes work and the hazard they pose. He is a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union.
