UB EARTHQUAKE RESEARCHERS TO PRESENT SEMINAR OCT. 6

Researchers at the University at Buffalo's Center for Earthquake Engineering Research will present a technical seminar Oct. 6 on the devastating earthquake that hit western Turkey last month.

The magnitude 7.4 quake killed more than 15,000 people along Turkey's Anatolian fault, collapsing numerous buildings and injuring thousands of people.

The center's researchers will discuss seismology of the region, structural damage, damage to highways and conditions in the days following the quake during the 4:15 p.m. seminar.

The free seminar, in Room 201 of the Natural Sciences Building on the university's North Campus, is open to the public. But reservations are required because seating is limited. To make a reservation, contact the center at UB.
