Name: SUNY Ulster - NYC Earthquakes: Can It Happen There?
Date: September 28, 2017
Time: 7:00 PM - 7:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
Most people do not think of New York City when thinking of earthquakes. Dr. Charles Merguerian, however, will discuss the history of earthquakes in NYC and make the case that a large number of northwest-trending faults throughout the bedrock of Manhattan should be considered active faults.

Dr. Merguerian is Professor Emeritus and former Chairman of Geology at Hofstra University (1981-2014), Visiting Research Fellow at Yale University, and has a broad range of expert consulting experience with the United States Geological Survey, the New York City DEP, Con Edison, and many private companies.
