Smith, of the University of Utah, will discuss the most recent swarm of about 1,000 earthquakes centered near Yellowstone Lake, and will share his knowledge and research about what is happening far beneath the earth's surface in Yellowstone National Park.
The event is part of a free community lecture series sponsored by MSU's Thermal Biology Institute and the NASA-funded MSU Astrobiology Biogeocatalysis Research Center. Light hors d'oeuvre and beverages will be served prior to the lecture. Admission is free.
