BOZEMAN -- A free public forum on seismic hazards in southwestern Montana will be held Monday, Nov. 14, at Montana State University.

The forum will be held at 7 p.m. in room 103 of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Building. The presentation is a service learning project of the environmental geology class in MSU's Department of Earth Sciences. Refreshments will be served.

Southwestern Montana lies in the heart of the Rocky Mountain Seismic Belt, which has a long history of earthquake events. The Nov. 14 presentation will cover basic principles of seismology, an overview of the regional geology and earthquake history, and information and resources on how to protect health and safety should a major earthquake occur in this area.
