Come join us for a lively seminar about one of the world’s most active volcanoes, Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano whose eruption cycle has continued almost nonstop for 35 years. This BAO exclusive seminar is held at The Menlo Park Science Center that has been the flagship research center for the United States Geological Survey in the western United States for more than 50 years. Geophysicist Kent Fogleman will teach us about the history of this volcano that does not want to slow down. The Kilauea eruption began in 1983, and ranks as the longest and most voluminous known outpouring of lava from Kilauea Volcano’s East Rift Zone in more than 500 years. The current Lower East Rift Zone activity that began in May 2018 has now destroyed over 600 homes and built over 500 acres of new land offshore from the previous coastline. Afterwards, we will enjoy a picnic lunch on the beautiful grounds of the Science Center. Registration is required using the link below, and choosing Event 11 when you are filling out the registration form. This event is held at USGS in Menlo Park CA.
