The Great Central U.S. ShakeOut

The Great Central U.S. ShakeOut is an annual opportunity to practice how to be safer during big earthquakes: "Drop, Cover and Hold On." The ShakeOut has also been organized to encourage you, your community, your school, or your organization to review and update emergency preparedness plans and supplies, and to secure your space in order to prevent damage and injuries.
Millions of people will practice how to “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” earthquake drill Thursday, Oct. 19 at 10:19 a.m. during this important earthquake drill. Resister your school, business, family and participate. Learn about earthquake potential in Missouri. Watch award-winning videos made by Missouri school children about what to do before, during and after an earthquake.
Registration totals from Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills across the U.S. are also included in America's PrepareAthon! participation totals.

Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology (NBMG) Earth Science Week Field Trip 2017

Earth Science Week Field Trip 2017Saturday, October 21

Location of trip: Carson Valley

A land in transition! Ancient river courses, young volcanoes, recent earthquakes, and modern debris flows in the Carson Valley

We hope you can join us on Saturday, October 21 as geoscientists from Nevada Bureau of Mines and Geology explain the geology of the Carson Valley—in celebration of Earth Science Week 2017 and the importance of earth sciences to the people of the state of Nevada.

Major stops on this field trip will include the following:

  • A "young" one-million-year-old cinder cone volcano
  • Evidence of ancient rivers flowing from central Nevada to the Pacific Ocean before the Basin and Range of Nevada dropped down because of faulting
  • Recently active earthquake faults
  • Geothermal springs
  • The 2014 Hot Spring Mountain flood and debris flows

Trip leaders Seth DeeBridget Ayling, and Chris Henry will be available to answer your questions about geology and identify a variety of rocks.

NBMG coordinates annual geology field trips for the public during, or near, Earth Science Week. These field trips are fun, educational, family oriented, and always free. NBMG has been an active participant in Earth Science Week since it began in 1998.
