700 Coyote Canyon Road
Jackson, WY 83001
A special presentation by Dr. Bob Smith, distinguished professor and professor emeritus of geology and geophysics at the University of Utah.
The presentation will cover the Yellowstone hotspot and mantle plume; subsurface geology and earth-quakes of Jackson Hole; Yellowstone's magma chamber; and the ’real-time pulse' of Yellowstone-Teton geology determined by GPS. Dr. Smith will also describe the newly upgraded Yellowstone earthquake-volcano monitoring network and show how the public can access the University of Utah real-time earthquake data.
Bob recently was awarded the Geological Society of America’s George P. Wollard award for outstanding contributions to geophysics and was honored in 2011 with U.S. Geological Survey’s John Wesley Powell Award.
The discussion is free and open to the public. Seating is on a first come-first served basis.
