Ask a Scientist - Celebrating Our Faults: 1906 - 2006
Ask a Scientist
One century ago, our beautiful city experienced a monumental shakedown--one that still looms in the psyches of San Franciscans whose grandparents weren't even born yet at the time.
Come celebrate the centennial anniversary of the infamous 1906 earthquake, Ask a Scientist-style, with David Schwartz of the USGS. A pioneer in the newly developing fields of earthquake geology and paleoseismology (the study of prehistorical seismic events), he'll tell us everything we ever wanted to know about our terra not-so-firma. Also try Temblor Trivia to test your seismic smarts!
