Show Map

Business School Western Lecture Theatre

University of Leeds, 128 Belle Vue Road, Leeds, LS3 1HF

This free public lecture will explain how scientists can use apparently chaotic noise to understand how the Earth works and how to make sure human structures like dams can be kept safe.  It is suitable for anyone interested in our planet.

The 2019 University of Leeds Green Lecture is given by Prof Roel Snieder, one of the world's foremost experts in using ground vibrations to study everything from earthquakes and volcanoes, to dams and buildings.

The lecture is followed by a complementary drinks reception.
