The lecturers will be presenting talks aimed at general public audiences throughout 2014.

The Lecture Series is seeking museum, university, and other venues for this season's speakers.

All lectures must be arranged for general public audiences. Due to the nature of the funding source for this program, lectures can not be arranged as part of a University Department Colloquium Series.

General arrangements, including publicity, will be coordinated between IRIS, SSA and the sponsoring venue. The minimum desired audience size is 200. IRIS and SSA will cover all speaker costs and may also provide accompanying seismology displays and other outreach materials if feasible.
