Posted on 12/6/2013 9:02:47 AM

Faculty members Jon Lewis and Katie Farnsworth, along with students Dan O’Hara and David Watkins, will travel to San Francisco during the Fall 2013 finals week to present at the American Geophysical Union (AGU) fall meeting. This meeting is the largest international conference in the geological sciences, with more than 22,000 attendees expected. 

  • Dan O’Hara (’14) and coauthors will present a poster entitled “Accommodation by Varying Strain Regimes along the Northern Luzon Arc (Coastal Range, Taiwan)—Insights from Focal Mechanism,” which is work that has been ongoing with Jon Lewis for the past few years.
  • David Watkins (’14) and coauthors will present a poster entitled “Investigating the Origins of Observed Variability of Slow Slip Events with Fault Slip Simulations” from his work with Harmony Colella and Michael Brudzinski at Miami University of Ohio that started as a summer 2013 Research Experience for Undergraduates project.
  • Katie Farnsworth will present an invited talk, coauthored with Tara Kniskern, entitled “Climatic and Anthropogenic Controls on Correlated Discharge from U.S. West Coast Rivers.” She is also presenting a poster along with Steve Hovan and colleague Martha House entitled “Teaching Introductory Oceanography through Case Studies: Project Based Approach for General Education Students” on work started this summer at a workshop.
  • Jon Lewis, and coauthors, will present a poster entitled “The Role of Upper Plate Silvering in Burial of the Luzon Forearc in Taiwan” and is chairing a session entitled “Seismology, Active Tectonics, and Geomorphology in South and East Asia VI: Seismogenesis.”

Abstracts can be accessed through the AGU website.
