On this episode, I am joined by Dr. Chris Goldfinger, Professor of Geology and Geophysics at Oregon State University. Chris’s research interests include subduction earthquakes; mechanics of oblique subduction, accretion and erosion of active margins; seafloor imaging, mapping, and visualization techniques; and seafloor drilling technology. His current work focuses on the investigation of the earthquake potential global subduction zones, including Sumatra, Japan and particularly the Cascadia subduction zone. Chris has been widely quoted by the media for his research, perhaps most noticeably in a 2015 New Yorker article called, “The Really Big One” about the potential fallout of a massive Cascadia earthquake.
