Big earthquakes are significantly rarer, which is fortunate as they are able to reason giant destruction over huge distances, create killer tsunamis, and even trigger volcanic eruptions. In this record we appear at 10 of essentially the most […]

NARRATOR: 1957. 70 miles from Venice, amid the cliffs and gorges of Italy’s Vajont River Valley, work begins on the Vajont Hydroelectric Dam. Crucial to the dam’s operation is a vast reservoir that can hold 44 billion gallons of water.

Scientists in the Wild: Dr. Julie Libarkin, Geologist

Oh, that’s a good question. So I’m a geologist and for many years I studied mountains and high plateaus like the Tibetan Plateau or the Colorado Plateau and how they formed. And now I study what I call Geocognition which is the intersection between cognitive science, how the brain works, and geological sciences. So really how people perceive, understand and interact with the planet. So a geologist is someone who studies the earth. And you can actually think a little more broadly about an earth scientist. So a geologist would be someone who studies the solid earth. Sort of the […]
