  • IASPEI Opening Ceremony


    IASPEI Opening Ceremony

    Friday July 12, 08:30-10:00 in Room 517


    All interested participants are invited to attend a presentation given by John Adams from 09:30-10:00 on July 12.


    Speaker: John Adams, Canadian Hazards Information Service, Natural Resources Canada

    Title: Montreal Shakes – Local earthquakes in their Canadian context

    Abstract: Montreal benefits from past earthquakes and may suffer from future earthquakes. The establishment of Montreal at the junction of the Ottawa and St. Lawrence rivers arose from events 560 Ma ago with the rifting and later collision of continents. Montreal passed over a hotspot 110 Ma ago and left the roots of ancient volcanoes as pimples on today’s landscape  – Mont Royal and others. The river system echoes the crustal weaknesses left by past events and the earthquakes that accompanied them, and hence the founding of Montreal by those using the rivers for exploration and commerce. Those same ancient faults are the source of today’s earthquakes. Descriptions of some larger historic earthquakes and their effects will set the scene for a talk about today’s earthquakes, the seismic hazard they represent for 2020, and the consequences should a rare large earthquake occur near Montreal.
