Science Exchange Series - Cake! and Earthquakes Other events...
Why do we have earthquakes in WA? Why do they happen more in some areas and not at all in others? WA is a long way from a tectonic plate boundary, so our earthquakes are different in nature to those in places like California, Indonesia or Japan.

Join Prof Myra Keep and PhD candidate Sean Standen as they explain the underlying geology of WA (using cake) and how it controls earthquake locations. They will then describe an example of an earthquake from the Wheatbelt, which occurred in Lake Muir in 2018, and see how the cake explains reality! Did we mention cake?
