Todd Williams talks about
Plate Boundary Observatory
Thursday, November 2
Room 9110, Ukiah Campus
Todd Williams, who received his Master's of Science degree in geology from Humboldt State University, is an earthquake geologist and field engineer now working on behalf of the National Science Foundation.
Williams, based out of Eureka, works throughout Northern California, locating sites and installing continuous Global Positioning System equipment for the Plate Boundary Observatory component of the EarthScope Project. EarthScope is a research facility of the National Science Foundation that takes a large scale, systems approach to explore the structure and evolution of the North American continent with a focus on earthquakes, volcanoes and tectonic deformation.
As a part of this large effort, a recent GPS installation was designed for the Mendocino College property at Point Arena.
