BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
The same geological forces that threaten our lives with earthquakes and tsunamis also nourish our spirits by creating the magnificent coastline of the Pacific Northwest. OSU Geosciences Professor Bob Lillie will give a presentation on earthquakes and tsunamis of the Oregon Coast. This presentation reveals the dynamic landscape of Oregon's coast and its impact on scientific, cultural and societal issues. The Oregon Coast has a wealth of dramatic landscapes - Cape Arago, Cape Perpetua, Yaquina Head, Cape Lookout, and Cannon Beach, to name just a few - that are preserved and showcased as national forests, state parks and other special places. Such beauty was formed, and is continually modified, by geological processes that also unleash the beast of earthquakes, tsunamis, and landslides. This 'Beauty and the Beast' story is vital to help the public enjoy scenic destinations along the Oregon Coast, appreciate how geology relates to the Coast's natural and cultural history, and understand how individuals and communities might mitigate the impacts of geological hazards.
