Environmental Studies Speaker Series- Jessica Domino

The Environmental Studies and Geology Division at Alfred University will once again be presenting weekly talks on environmental topics this fall. If you wish to attend a talk in person, they will be presented in Roon Lecture Hall of the Science Center on the AU campus. All talks, however, will be available to be joined via Zoom, even if the speaker is here in person. The Environmental Studies program at AU has been sponsoring talks by visiting speakers for over 20 years, and they are typically attended by students, faculty, and members of the community.

Join us on Friday, Dec. 2nd to hear Jessica Domino give a talk titled "The Changing Flavor of Earthquakes - From Natural to Induced and the Sour Taste Left Behind".

Jess is a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Sciences and Geology here on campus. She is most interested in earthquakes and volcanoes along tectonic boundaries and focuses on material properties of Earth’s interior by studying seismic waves. This interest has led to becoming a contractor for Texas Seismological Network and Seismology Research (TexNet) as a seismic analyst. As an analyst, she helps to determine where earthquakes within the state originate and assigns the magnitude of each event. Texas has seen a recent rise is seismicity as a result of oil and gas extraction, with some of these earthquakes causing damage to infrastructure. She will discuss how this rise in induced seismicity affects us living on Earth’s crust.
