RMOTHG National Earthquake Information Center and Geology Museum Tour

Monday, June 3rd, 2013


On Monday, June 3rd,
RMOTHG members will tour the National Earthquake Center (NEIC) and the Colorado
School of Mines Geology Museum, both located at the Colorado School of Mines
(CSM) in Golden. The tour is scheduled for 9:30 a.m.

The tour of the NEIC
includes fascinating information about the technology and science of
earthquakes. The Center monitors and reports on earthquakes around the world.
Our tour will take 45 minutes to one hour and will include a lecture about the
National Earthquake Information Center operations, the Earthquake Early
Alerting Service and earthquakes in general.

Next, we will visit
the CSM Geology Museum to learn about minerals, fossils, gemstones, meteorites
and artifacts. Highlights include a video on the geology of the Golden area,
interactive displays on radioactivity, ultraviolet minerals, and precious
metals. Weather permitting, after our indoor-guided tour we’ll walk outdoors
along a geologic trail that features fossilized dinosaur tracks.

Those interested can
join us after the tours at the Sherpa House Restaurant for a delightful
Nepalese experience. The interior décor is an authentic representation of a
typical Sherpa house in the Himalaya. Entrees are available for $10-$13. Numerous appetizers, soups and salads are on the menu.


We will be carpooling from downtown Golden. Exact location will be emailed to participants within a week prior to the event. Both tours are free. The tour is limited to 25 participants. The deadline to sign up is May 28th. Please indicate if you will be joining us for lunch.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
