Description

The Western Libraries Reading Series featured Jackie Caplan-Auerbach on Wednesday, February 12, 2020 at 4:00 in Western Libraries Reading Room. Dr. Caplan-Auerbach presented Sounds of an Era's End: The 2018 Eruption of Kilauea Volcano, Hawai`i, from Ocean Bottom Seismometers.

The 2018 eruption of Kilauea volcano, Hawai’i, had the highest flux of lava ever recorded at Kilauea and resulted in the destruction of over 700 structures and the displacement of thousands of Hawai`i residents. Dr. Caplan-Auerbach will talk about her work as a lead investigator during that eruption to deploy a network of ocean-bottom seismometers to record seismic activity and sounds, which helped to provide insight into the evolution and stability of how volcanoes grow and evolve.

Jackie Caplan-Auerbach is a professor in the Geology Dept. and the Associate Dean of the College of Science & Engineering at WWU. She teaches about topics related to geology, earthquake seismology, and mantle convection. Her research focuses on the seismic and acoustic signals generated by volcanoes and landslides.
