Mike Poland, a scientist with the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, has spent the past ten years studying volcanic and earthquake activity across the Hawaiian islands. He came to HVO in 2005 to focus on deformation (changes in the shape of a volcano prior to and during an eruption) but quickly realized that monitoring volcanoes like Kīlauea and Mauna Loa requires teamwork and innovation—two things in which the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory specializes! Poland will soon return to the USGS Cascades Volcano Observatory in Washington, where he was stationed prior to HVO. But before he goes, he will share what he has discovered over the past decade about Hawaiian volcanoes and earthquakes, as well as the scientists who work at HVO. Please join Mike for this informative and engaging presentation.
