Two Earthquakes in Christchurch, NZ: Lessons for California, May 4

UCB’s own professor of architecture, Mary Comerio, visited Christchurch, New Zealand, after the September 2010 M7.1 earthquake and after its surprisingly damaging February 2011 M6.3 aftershock. She will talk about the tectonic setting of the two earthquakes and why the damage from the smaller one harbors important lessons for California.

Since 2003, the Berkeley Seismological Laboratory has been hosting public lectures, the Lawson Lectures, on earthquakes and earthquake science. The lecture series is meant to address a wide variety of earthquake issues of interest to the Berkeley community.
