On this edition of StudioTulsa, we speak with Dr. Brian Lutz of the Department of Biology and the Nicholas School of the Environment at Duke University. He'll soon deliver a free-to-the-public address on "Hydraulic Fracturing vs. Tue, 27 Nov 2012 19:27:20 +0000 Rich Fisher 30160 at http://publicradiotulsa.org At TU's National Energy Policy Institute: "Hydraulic Fracturing vs. Mountaintop-Removal Coal Mining" "Tectonics, Earthquakes, and the EarthScope Project in North America's Interior" http://publicradiotulsa.org/post/tectonics-earthquakes-and-earthscope-project-north-americas-interior <p>Our guest on ST is Dr. Stephen Marshak, Professor of Geology and Director of the School of Earth, Society, and Environment at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. As a part of Earth Week, the University of Tulsa's Geosciences Department invited Dr. Marshak for two speaking engagements that occurred here on the TU campus yesterday (the 17th) at noon and 7:30pm. The latter was an address entitled "What's Happening Deep Beneath the Midcontinent?: Tectonics, Earthquakes, and the EarthScope Project in North America's Interior."
