SeismoDome: Sights and Sounds of Earthquakes and Global Seismology

June 25, 2014


Earthquakes happen frequently—but what causes them? Why are they unpredictable? What do they tell us about Earth's deep interior? Explore these questions with collaborating Earth scientists, astrophysicists, and sound artists, as they bring to the Planetarium dome  the sights and sounds of seismic waves moving through and around the planet.  Through movies and sound, explore five earthquakes from the last decade, as observed from space and then, from deep inside Earth. Experiencing these dramatic events in the Planetarium's immersive dome may transform the way you think about our planet. 

Speakers include Ben Holtzman, of Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and Jason Candler, of NYU.
