Science Inquiry Lecture - The Yellowstone Volcano: News from the Front

Join MOR and the Gallatin Valley Friends of the Sciences as we explore cutting-edge science topics, their latest developments, and their relevance to society through speaker presentations followed by an engaging question and answer session.

What does front line research tell us about the current state of the immense volcano that makes up much of Yellowstone National Park?  Dr. Michael Poland, Scientist-in-Charge of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory, will discuss the geologic hazards of the Yellowstone region, activity that has been recorded in 2019, and recent research into how the Yellowstone volcanic system works.

Hager Auditorium lectures have a limited capacity and are open on a first-come, first-served basis. The doors open 30 minutes before each lecture. Attendees may not save seats for others.
