Three Newly Discovered Fault Systems in Oregon

DOGAMI Senior Scientist Ian Madin will discuss how using LiDAR (light detection and ranging) has led to newly discovered fault systems in Oregon: the Mt Hood, the White Branch of the McKenzie, and the John Day faults. Ian Madin has worked for DOGAMI since 1987, where he has served as the Seismic Hazard Geologist for the State of Oregon, Chief Scientist, and is now the Senior Scientist and Earthquake Hazard Geologist. During his time at DOGAMI he has supervised the agency’s earthquake, landslide, geologic mapping, and LiDAR programs. He is also the author of the statewide geologic map Oregon: A Geologic History.
