Citing past natural disasters
Terry Wallace is the principal associate director for global security at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Did you know that nearly 80 percent of the world’s economic output comes from urban centers — so developing countries need to urbanize to improve their economic status. More than half of the emerging urban centers are also the sites of past natural disasters. Natural disasters are a hot news topic; a meteorite explodes over the Urals, Hurricane Sandy causes losses of $75 billion in the northeast, and 250,000 people die on “Boxing Day” 2004 in an earthquake and resulting tsunami in south Asia. At this table you’ll discuss the dramatic shift in the world’s populations to urban centers. Wallace is a seismologist with a specialization in forensic seismology, which is the detection and quantification of non-earthquake seismic events.
