PRESENTATION:

Speakers: Dr. Kevin Scott

ABSTRACT:

In The Voice of This Stone, a widely published and respected volcanologist with five decades of scientific study and boots-on-the-ground experience shares his expert knowledge. Through more than a dozen case studies from around the globe, Dr. Kevin Scott offers chilling details about what happened before, during, and after infamous volcanic cataclysms.

During his lengthy career as a field geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Scott traveled the world to visit sites that were dramatically altered by forces within the earth. He has witness firsthand what happens when tectonic plates movement ignites earthquakes and volcanic activity such as eruptions and killer lahars, massive mud-and-debris landslides that roar down mountainsides. Scotts case studies highlight some of the best-known events and advance warnings regarding future episodes. By deciphering the histories of other disasters, Scott proposes, lives can and will be spared.


SPEAKER BIO: Dr. Kevin Scott

Kevin Scott is among the fraction of geologists whove spent their careers in the field, traveling internationally, venturing up and down mountains, observing altered landscapes, and studying volcanic history stored in the rock record. After earning his bachelors and masters degrees at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Scott pursued his doctoral degree at the University of WisconsinMadison. Curiosity and adrenaline seem to have fueled his lengthy career, surviving a helicopter crash in Alaska, escaping from a near kidnapping in South America, and emerging alive from a close call with a flowing lahar in the Philippines. Scott is a respected member of the Geological Society of America and has published often with the United States Geological Survey. For more info visit www.volcanicdisasters.com
