​ "The Next Great Cascadia Earthquake: How Did We Get Here?"
Join us to learn about Earthquake Preparedness.

Guest Speaker: Dr. Chris Goldfinger, Oregon State University, College of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science
Dr. Chris Goldfinger is a marine geologist and geophysicist with a focus on great earthquakes and structure of plate boundary fault zones around the world. He has experience with deep submersibles, sidescan sonar, seismic reflection, and other marine geophysical tools on over 40 oceanographic cruises over the last 25 years. He is currently working on great subduction earthquakes along the Cascadia, NE Japan, the Caribbean, and Sumatran margins, as well as the Northern San Andreas Fault off northern California using the evidence for earthquakes found in deep-sea sediments. This work is developing methods for submarine paleoseismology in locales where plate boundaries are submerged. The Cascadia work was the topic of a recent National Science Foundation Distinguished Lecturer Series, and the recipient of the 2016 Geological Society of America Kirk Bryan Award for Quaternary Geology. Goldfinger is a Professor of Marine Geology and received his PhD from Oregon State University in 1994.
