Geosciences at Virginia Tech presents a program and reception for "Clues From Earthquakes and Tsunamis in Coastal Deposits" on Thursday, April 18, 2019 at Derring Hall on the campus of Virginia Tech.

• 7:00-8:00 pm: Lecture
• 8:00-8:30 pm Meet-The-Scientists Reception (Museum of Geosciences)

Dr. Tina Dura recently joined the Virginia Tech Geosciences department. Dr. Dura's research explores subduction zone earthquake and tsunami records over many seismic cycles (thousands of years). To extend these earthquake and tsunami records, Dr. Dura applies stratigraphic, sedimentary, and microfossil (diatom) methods to coastal sedimentary sequences to identify changes in ancient environments. Some of these changes can be recognized as signals of past faulting and tsunami flooding. This captures the variation of the largest events over space and time to help assess current and future hazards for coastal areas.

Following the lecture, please join us after Dr. Dura's lecture for a Meet-The-Scientists Reception in the Museum of Geosciences, located in 2062 Derring Hall. She and her students will have learning stations showing more about how they do this research

Admission is free and all are welcome.

Note: The event was originally scheduled for Thursday, April 4, 2019, but had to be postponed.
