The Giant Cascadia Earthquake of January 26, 1700: Detective Stories from North America and Japan is the subject of the next USGS free public lecture to be give by Brian Atwater on July 30 at 7:00 pm. He’ll examine:

  • A tsunami from western North America entered Japanese written history in Jan 1700
  • Decades of basic research on both sides of the Pacific led to this discovery
  • The findings underpin public-safety measures in the United States and Canada

The lecture takes place in Rambo Auditorium/Bldg. 3, 345 Middlefield Avenue in Menlo Park.
