The continuing goal of CERI is to provide both scientific and non-scientific information
about earthquakes and earthquake preparedness to people in the central and eastern
U.S. who could someday be affected by a significant earthquake.
During the Iben Browning episode of 1990, CERI was the main regional source of earthquake
information. Filling the information vacuum during the period of intense public concern
had a permanent impact on public awareness and understanding of regional earthquake
Town Hall meetings are conducted by staff and faculty members on an on-going basis
to address specific concerns of citizens related to earthquake hazards.
