Tours and Presentations

BSL staff spent considerable time with public relations activities during the past year. Several tours are given each month, with audiences ranging from middle-school students to scientists and engineers from China and Japan. The December 26, 2004 Sumatra earthquake and tsunami (and the March M8.7 aftershock) increased interest in tours last year and the number of requests received by the BSL.

The BSL hosted several special groups during 2004-2005. Several large groups visited, including classes from the local Montessori School, Bret Harte Middle School, the Northern California Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, and a number of home-schooled students. In addition to the tours, Drs. Romanowicz, Dreger, Gee, Hellweg, and Uhrhammer presented talks on earthquakes and related phenomena to public groups.
