State Geologists speaking out on landslides and sinkholes

On November 13, 2014, David Norman. State Geologist of Washington and Karen Berry, State Geologist of Colorado were panelists at the Autumn meeting of the National Academy of Sciences Board on Earth Sciences and Resources in Washington DC.  Jamie Robertson, State Geologist of Wisconsin serves on the Board.  The theme of the meeting was “Landslides and landslide risk: What we have learned in the last decade?”

The Weather Channel’s “Secrets of the Earth” recently aired its production on sinkholes.  The producers did a great job presenting science wrapped in excitement and intrigue, and the animations are excellent.  Tune in to see a couple of familiar faces from the ranks of State Geologists.
