Welcome back to the winter quarter! I hope you are staying warm and dry.
Something interesting popped up in my email this morning: the January issue of the Natural Hazards Observer, a free newsletter from the Natural Hazards Center. This issue has a lot about flu, Typhoon, Haiyan, and sea level rise, but most interesting to us is probably the 1-page article "Pacific Northwest Quake Could Trigger Giant Landslides." Something to think about!
