SUNY Ulster Presentation: New York City Earthquakes: Can It Happen There?

Free and open to the public. Most people do not think of New York City when thinking of earthquakes. Dr. Charles Merguerian, however, will discuss the history of earthquakes in New York City and make the case that a large number of northwest-trending faults throughout the bedrock of Manhattan should be considered active faults. Dr. Merguerian is Professor Emeritus and former Chairman of Geology at Hofstra University (1981-2014), Visiting Research Fellow at Yale University and has a broad range of expert consulting experience with the United States Geological Survey, the New York City DEP, Con Edison and many private companies.
