Date, time & venue
Jointly organized by CVD, EVD, AMC, YMC and the China Universities (HK) Alumni – Engineers Division
In the last ten years, many mega-earthquakes occurred and caused many casualties to human beings and devastating disasters to environments. In this seminar, Dr. Yue will give a brief review on the impacts of the mega-earthquakes happened in China and around the Pacific Ocean in recent years. He will then discuss the cause of earthquakes. He will use facts to show that the earthquake energy is the volumetric expansion energy of highly compressed and dense natural (methane) gas escaped from deep crust traps along deep fault zones. Based on this energy hypothesis, Dr. Yue will explain the reasons why many seismologists believe the next damaging earthquake unpredictable. He will further put forward a new approach for effective and accurate prediction of the next damaging earthquakes.
Ir Dr. Quentin ZQ Yue, Department of Civil Engineering, The University of Hong Kong
