North Devon 'hub' launch lecture
Earthquake science - the good, the bad and the ugly by Professor Iain Stewart
Friday 7 October, 7.30pm, Braunton Academy, North Devon
Will it ever be possible to predict earthquakes? If not, how best can we prepare those living in active geological environments for the threat of seismic destruction? And what is the role and responsibility of geoscientists in conveying seismic risk messages to at-risk communities? Drawing examples from across the Mediterranean realm, Iain journeys from central Italy to Istanbul in search of answers to these pressing societal questions.
Professor Iain Stewart is Director of the Sustainable Earth Institute at Plymouth University and has presented a number of science programmes for the BBC. He was the recipient of the RGS-IBG Ness Award in 2010 for popularising geography and earth sciences.
