Geophysical News on TV: Could it be Better? How You Can Help
Thursday (5:30 PM, Room 132 Moscone). Is health and medicine the only science that makes it onto the network news? Do TV reporters conduct hour long interviews and use just 10 seconds, not even on the main point? Can scientists explain their discoveries in plain English? Do some researchers avoid media contact, while others relentlessly seek publicity for minor advances? Our panel of journalists and scientists will discuss the realities of TV news and seek ways to improve the relationship between researchers and reporters. Panelists are:

    Juju Chang, ABC News
    Rick Chapell, Vanderbilt University
    Ann Marie Cunningham, WNET/13 New York
    Jim Hartz, PBS
    Jay Ingram, Discovery Channel Canada
    Gregory van der Vink, IRIS

The Music of Earthquakes: Waveforms of Sound and Seismology
Thursday (7:30 PM, Room 134 Moscone). [Note: Especially suitable for radio or TV coverage.] Musicians and seismologists have much in common: musicians create waves to make beautiful music, while seismologists study waves to analyze the Earth. When musicians are also seismologists, they can explain both music and earthquakes in new ways. This is a public lecture, open to everyone who wishes to attend.
