AESE Field Trip

Association of Earth Science Editors: Shaking, Baking, Slipping, and Sliding in Seattle
Sat., Nov. 1, 8 a.m.-9 p.m. Sponsored by Association of Earth Science Editors.
Maximum: 90. Cost: Professional: $120; student: $75. Preregistration required. Registration deadline is September 30, 2003. Information and registration: Marla Adkins-Heljeson, (785) 864-2114.
This geologist-led field trip will include an overview of the geology of the Seattle area, with particular emphasis on hazards. With some world-class volcanoes, plate boundaries and associated earthquakes, debris flows, and flood potential in the area, there is no shortage of challenges for geologists in assessing the threats. Communicating these potential hazards to the public is the second major challenge facing geologists. We will leave the hotel in the morning, have box lunches on the bus or at a stop, and travel on to Mt. Rainier, where we will end our day with dinner at a rustic lodge before our two-hour trip back to Seattle.
