Superstar Geophysicist Tanya Atwater, will present an incredible and amazing series of images and ideas on the geologically active San Francisco area. She’ll also throw in some climate-related stuff because it’s amazing.
Tanya is a retired faculty member from UC Santa Barbara. After the initial theories of plate tectonics were established, Tanya was deeply involved in completing the theories. Her early papers on the topic were incorporated directly into text books and set the standard for geology education. She also is well known for using animations as an educational tool. More animations.
