5:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Columbia Alumni Center, 622 W. 113 St., New York, NY 10025 Schapiro Room, 8th Floor
The MS in Sustainability Science program will be hosting a special topics seminar series this semester. The series will feature speakers from the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, each focusing on a cutting-edge research topic in their particular area of expertise, all centered around the challenges of global climate change. Anticipating Earthquake and Tsunami Hazards: Challenges and Opportunities About the speaker: Donna Shillington is a Lamont Associate Research Professor in the Marine Geology & Geophysics division at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. Her research focuses on deformation, magmatism and sedimentation at active and ancient plate tectonic boundaries, which she studies by combining seismic imaging with complementary data from other earth science fields. Current projects are focused in the Alaska subduction zone, the Malawi Rift in the East Africa Rift System, Corinth Rift in Greece, the Atlantic rifted margins, and the Hawaii-Emperor Seamount Chain. Shillington collects data on land and at sea; she has sailed on 16 research cruises around the world and also lead major seismic data collection efforts on land.
