Speaker Series 2015: “The 2013 Alberta Flood: Causes and Consequences”
The next session in the 2015 Royal Tyrrell Museum Speaker Series is a presentation by Dr. Jon Noad from Husky Energy on the causes and consequences of the floods that hit Alberta in June 2013, which resulted in over 100,000 people being evacuated from their homes.
Speaking from his extensive experience and background in sedimentology and geology, Noad explores why the flood occurred, what its impact was on selected settlements, what the flood left behind, and speculates on the likelihood of the recurrence of a flood of similar magnitude.
The Royal Tyrrell Museum’s Speaker Series talks are free and held every Thursday from January to April 2015 at 11:00 a.m. in the Museum auditorium. Please visit the website for more information about upcoming speakers.
