THE WONDERFUL, FRENETIC YEARS OF THE PLATE TECTONIC REVOLUTION: HOW IT WAS TO BE IN THE MIDDLE OF IT

The plate tectonic revolution broke upon the Scripps Institute of Oceanography with a lecture by Fred Vine in December of 1966. Tanya Atwater arrived there a few weeks later to start graduate school; she found the place in a complete, excited chaos. During the next few years she had a front-row seat to the evolution of this new world view. In this lecture, she will tell this story, using images and animations to describe her experiences as the conceptual world of earth sciences was completely upended and reconstituted.

Speaker: Tanya Atwater, UC Santa Barbara, emeritus
