Dr. Bob Varga: "Rock and Roll: Geology of Southern California Earthquakes"

People have long been attracted to Southern California’s beautiful mountains, valleys and shorelines.  While beautiful, however, our topography represents an active landscape that is still growing and changing. Earthquakes are, of course, a constant reminder of this activity. The purpose of this presentation is to provide both the local and global geologic context for Southern California earthquakes which helps us understand the inevitability of significant earthquakes in our future.
