Jeffrey Karson, professor of earth sciences in the College of Arts and Sciences, was interviewed by WSYR Radio to discuss recent volcanic and earthquake activity.
Karson, an expert in seismology says, “Earthquakes and volcanoes are completely normal behavior. They get our attention of course when they occur in places where they damage infrastructure and they impact the way people live.”
“That is a legitimate concern,” Karson says regarding the volcano in Missouri. He goes on to explain how earthquakes and volcanoes hit. He concludes that New York residents shouldn’t worry because an earthquake is unlikely to happen anytime soon.
