Jonathon Stock, research geologist and Director of the USGS Innovation Center will be presenting a free evening public lecture on January 28 titled The Last Land: How humans changed erosion in Hawaii. Among topics covered:

  • Hawaii is one of the last habitable places on Earth reached by humans.
  • From first Hawaiian arrivals c. 1000-1200 A.D. to now, humans have accelerated erosion.
  • Dirty water threatens the economic and social assets of the islands.
  • Mapping, monitoring and modeling (M3) can focus cost-effective mitigation.

The lecture will begin at 7:00 pm and take place in the Rambo Auditorium/Bldg. 3, 345 Middlefield Rd. in Menlo Park.
