Speaker: Scott Lindvall, 2019–2020 AEG/GSA Richard H. Jahns Distinguished Lecturer 2019-2020
Topic: Characterizing Fault Displacement Hazards: Significant Progress and Significant Uncertainties
Abstract: This talk will focus on the different methods and underlying data used to develop probabilistic and deterministic fault displacement estimates as well as our understanding of fault behavior (slip rate, magnitude, and recurrence) and the uncertainties associated with fault behavior and observations of historic fault slip. The presentation will also raise critical questions regarding both methodologies and design criteria used for infrastructure projects in light of these uncertainties.
Biography: Scott Lindvall is a Certified Engineering Geologist in California with 35 years of experience working in the consulting industry performing seismic and geologic hazard analyses, fault investigations, and engineering geology studies for both existing and proposed critical facilities.
