Press Events At Spring Meeting

ject YOTO Drifters, providing scientists and teachers near real-time data from 200 drifting ocean buoys.

USGS will also display in the exhibit area (on Tuesday and Wednesday only!) instrumentation that produces CD-ROMs of ocean floor data on board ship. Light refreshments will be served. (Meeting sessions on these topics will be held over several days.)

3:30 PM. The global impact of El Niño on the Earth System. Press conference. Dr. David A. Salstein, Principal Scientist and Manager of the Circulation Diagnostics Group at Atmospheric and Environmental Research, Inc., will discuss global impacts of the 1997-98 and other El Niño events. These effects include changes in the overall wind circulation of the atmosphere, which have induced a change in the rotation rate of the Earth. This has resulted in a meaningful increase in the length of the day, as well as other impacts on motions of the Earth and on the oceans. (Meeting sessions on El Niño will take place all day today.)

6:00 PM. Wine and cheese reception for all registered media representatives, hosted by New England Science Writers and AGU. Room CC105. Come and meet your colleagues, followed immediately by:

7:00 PM. Earthquakes: can Boston survive the big one? NESW program: Room 111. Candlestick Park withstood a major earthquake during a ball game; would Fenway Park? Dr. John Ebel, Director of Boston College's Weston Observatory, will discuss the seismic threat to the Boston area. San Francisco may be better equipped to survive a strong quake than Boston, whose building codes have not emphasized this threat and which lies on large patches of filled land. How great is the actual risk? Dr. Ebel will discuss the latest information gathered by the New England Seismic Network, which catalogues all earthquakes occurring in the six state region. (Several Meeting sessions on May 27 will deal with earthquake hazards in Boston and elsewhere.)

Wednesday, May
