The Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences in the College of Arts and Sciences presents the K.D. Nelson Lecture Series featuring  speaker Dr. Patrick Fulton from Cornell Engineering. His talk is titled: “Insights into Earthquake Physics from Hydrologic Borehole Observatories.”

In this talk he will discuss some of his group’s work studying fluid flow and heat transport with borehole observatories in active fault zones both onshore and in deep ocean trenches. Dr. Fulton will also briefly discuss their current plans to drill a 3km deep geothermal exploratory borehole on Cornell’s campus in the next several months and the opportunities it provides for broader earth science. Together these efforts are providing fundamental insights into the physics of earthquakes, the coupled relationships between hydrogeologic properties, deformation and heat transport.
