21st Science Café in Front of the Zoo - "Is this okay? Earthquake Motion Prediction"

2016-10-15 (Sat) 14:00 - 16:00

Recently, the continued use of calculation methods with a tendency to underestimate the scale and tremor strength of earthquakes by the Nuclear Regulation Authority and power companies has become a problem for the central government's Earthquake Research Committee. We've invited NAGASAWA Hiroyuki (Chief, Archives, Wakasa Solidarity Action Network) to have a discussion with us about the correct usage of earthquake predictions and how to prepare for earthquakes that will eventually come to not only nuclear reactors, but to downtown Osaka as well.

Date: 2016-10-15 (Sat) 14:00 - 16:00
Organizer: Tobita Hondori Shotengai Shinko Kumiai, Osaka University Basic Seminar, "Sciences in the Current Society"
Venue: Dobutsuen-mae 1-Bangai Event Space (100m south through the shopping arcade located outside of exit 2 of the Dobutsuen-mae subway station)
Registration: Registration is not required for this seminar.
Contact: Yatsuhisa NAGANO, Graduate School of Science, Osaka University
