Playing against nature - assessing & mitigating natural hazards in the presence of deep uncertainty
Professor Seth Stein, Northwestern University, conducts research focusing on investigating plate boundary processes and deformation within the lithosphere using a range of techniques including space-based geodesy, seismology, and marine geophysics. These include ongoing or past studies of the New Madrid seismic zone, the 2001 Bhuj earthquake in India, the 2004 Sumatra earthquake, earthquake recurrence and hazards, and the Andes.
This lecture is aimed at an interdisciplinary audience and will consider policy and science.
This event is for postgraduates at the University only.
Places are limited so you MUST book a place. A light lunch will be provided.
