Open House

The BSL participated in CalDay this year. The attendance for the open house was, as always, good. The visitors learned about UC Berkeley's role in earthquake monitoring, watched a streaming feed of earthquake data, jumped up and down to ``make a quake," played with the earthquake machine, made P and S-waves with springs, learned about earthquake preparedness, and were given sample seismograms. The BSL also co-sponsored lectures with the Earth and Planetary Science department on "Geology of the Berkeley and East Bay Hills", "Geology of San Francisco Bay Area" and "Why do Volcanoes Erupt Explosively."
