28Sep2010: Tsunami and the Cornish Coast

Professor Simon Haslett, of BBC's "Coast" programme, will be giving a talk at University College Falmouth, Woodlane on Tuesday 28th September at 6.15pm about the possibility of a Tsunami hitting Cornwall... Should be an interesting talk and admission is free.

This year's Board of Governors' Annual Guest Lecture takes place on Tuesday 28 September and is entitled "The Hell of High Water: Tsunami and the Cornish Coast".

This year's speaker is Professor Simon Haslett FRGS FGS. Simon is a regular presenter on the BBC's "Coast" and has undertaken eight years of geographical field and archive work to try and establish if tsunami are a more frequent hazard around the coast of Britain than previously thought.

His talk will focus on the fact that the British Isles are not generally considered to be at risk from tsunami. However, destructive tsunami are known to have occurred with certainty on a few occasions, but historic records and field evidence gathered from the shores of Britain suggests that there may have been many more, with the coast of Cornwall seeming to be a tsunami hotspot.

The talk takes place at UCF's Woodlane Lecture Theatre on Tuesday, 28 September 2010. The lecture will start at 6.15pm. All are welcome.
