Heather DeShon’s research focuses on understanding earthquake initiation and rupture complexity.
WHAT: Texas Tech University School of Law Energy Law Lecture Series featuring Heather DeShon
WHEN: Noon Monday (Oct. 19)
WHERE: Lanier Auditorium, Texas Tech School of Law, 1802 Hartford Ave.
EVENT: The Energy Law Lecture Series, hosted by the Texas Tech School of Law, welcomes seismologist Heather DeShon for its second lecture this season. Her lecture is titled "Mitigating Induced Earthquakes in North Texas."
DeShon is an associate professor of geophysics at Southern Methodist University whose research focuses on understanding earthquake initiation and rupture complexity. Using high-resolution technology, she studies the spatial and temporal relationships between an earthquake's source characteristics and fault structure. Through her research she hopes to improve seismic and tsunami estimates. She is part of SMU's Seismic Study Team that authored a report connecting excessive disposal-well use to a series of earthquakes near Azle.
A live webcast of the lecture can be seen here.
Those attending the event are eligible for one hour of Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit. Contact Corey Clem at email@example.com for details.
