Secret Science Club presents Geologist & Geophysicist Maureen Long

Beneath the surface, our planet pulses with heat and motion. Processes deep in Earth’s interior shape everything from the magnetic field and plate tectonics to earthquakes and volcanoes. Yet, much of what lies beneath remains a mystery. At the next Secret Science Club, prepare to go deeper than ever before with geophysicist Maureen Long as she takes us from the lithosphere to the core-mantle boundary.

Maureen Long uses recordings of earthquakes from all over the world to study the deep structure of the Earth, how Earth’s mantle is like a lava lamp, and how plate tectonics shape the geology of our planet. A professor of geology and geophysics at Yale University, she has conducted fieldwork in the Peruvian Andes, the High Lava Plains of Oregon, the Appalachians of West Virginia, and on the Research Vessel Endeavor in the Atlantic Ocean. The author of over 60 scientific papers and winner of the Macelwane Medal from the American Geophysical Union, she works with Earthscope, a program that has deployed thousands of geophysical instruments to study the structure and evolution of the North American continent and causes of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions.
