Education & Outreach


So many areas of the globe are prone to earthquakes. As citizens of the world, we worry about the devastating effects they can have on society. CERI plays a huge role in providing both scientific and practical 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 hazards.

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.
