When the massive 9.0-magnitude earthquake struck Japan last April, Scripps Oceanography was listening. The Institution operates local, national, and international seismic observing systems, each finely tuned for detecting earthquakes – from those in our own backyard to ones on the other side of the globe.

Join seismologist Frank Vernon as he describes two such projects: the USArray Transportable Array and the San Jacinto Fault Zone Experiment. Learn how Scripps scientists are “wiring” the earth to understand the rumblings of our dynamic planet.

RSVP: 858-534-5771 or online
Date: March 12, 2012 from 6:30-8 pm
Admission: Members are free, public is $8
