Talkin’ about Quakes with Monica!

Friend of the show Monica Wolfson Schwehr (who, for some unknown reason, didn’t change her name to Monica Schwehr-Wolf after getting married) is presenting a USGS Earthquake Science Center talk that will be live streamed today! You can catch “The Relationship Between Seismicity and Fault Structure on Discovery Transform Fault, East Pacific Rise” at 10:30 AM PST (1:30 EST). Break a leg, Monica! (that works for streaming science talks, right?)

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.
