Tuesday, April 10, the U.S. Geological Survey will host the eighth annual Earthquake Insight Field Trip. This one-day outreach event will start and end in Memphis, Tenn. Field trip participants will learn about the earthquake history of the central U.S. and current exposures to earthquake hazards in this area. The trip is especially for non-scientists, such as emergency planners, business leaders, elected officials, media, finance and equity professionals, risk managers, portfolio managers, lenders, and business continuity planners. The field trip will be led by geoscientists, engineers, and emergency planners who are active in current research and practice. The final report of the first Earthquake Insight Field Trip, which was in 2005, is posted online. The route and content of each Earthquake Insight Field Trip since then has been unique.
