-A A +A

Earthquakes and their possible causes is the topic of the next series of Frontiers in Science lectures by Paul Johnson of Los Alamos National Laboratory’s Geophysics group. The first lecture is at 7 p.m. Nov. 12 at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science, 1801 Mountain Road NW in Albuquerque.
“What is it that makes the Earth move under our feet?” Johnson asks. “How is it that earthquakes can cause other earthquakes? Can human activities also trigger earthquakes?”

Nov. 18 in the James A. Little Theater New Mexico School for the Deaf, 1060 Cerrillos Road, Santa Fe.
