Inside Research at Utah State University

At Utah State University’s Sunrise Sessions, faculty and students share their research with alumni, community and business leaders from the Salt Lake area. Held quarterly in downtown Salt Lake City, these early-morning presentations detail how USU research is addressing pressing issues such as the obesity epidemic and hearing loss in children. All are invited to attend these events at no charge thanks to generous sponsorship by Regence Blue Cross Blue Shield.

Water Tectonics and the Roots of Utah’s Earthquakes

For decades, scientists have thought of mountain-building and earthquakes as expressions of thermal processes deep in the Earth’s mantle… But imaging of the roots of North America over the last five years tells us the deep Earth doesn’t look at all like we thought it would. Now it appears that an important contributor to Utah’s mountain vistas and restless faults is one we weren’t even looking for: Water.

 

Sunrise Sessions are free to the public! Let us know you know you’re coming by clicking the button above. We’ll make sure to save you a seat, and don’t forget: free breakfast. Parking is also free, just park beneath the hotel.
