Add to Calendar 26-09-2013 26-09-2013 15 Mitigating Disasters: Earthquake Response in the 21st Century with Gavin Hayes Gavin Hayes, of the United States Geological Survey's National Earthquake Information Center, presents this special lecture about earthquakes—a natural part of the world we live in. We cannot prevent earthquakes, which are a natural consequence of the relative motions of tectonic plates, which make up the jigsaw puzzles of Earth's outer shell. But in a world in which populations are increasing—notably in megacities that are often located in areas of high seismic hazard—we must learn to better mitigate their impact. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=143517 American Museum of Natural History true DD/MM/YYYY
