Earthquake between science, history and communication: video conference with INGV seismologist with Liceo Alberti

Thursday 11 November3:00 p.m. – Geologist from the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV) Alessandro Amato, In a video conference with students of Liceo Scientifico Alberti di Minturno LT

It’s a cycle date Science in school from Zanecelli. Video meetings with researchers NS Figures of the scientific world and secondary schools and institutes in various Italian regions to tell students and teachers the stories of those who work in the frontiers of research. They are stories that convey our passion for science and provide insights into what we know and are about to discover in mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and medicine with particular attention to the goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda.

It’s all about a few questions: What is the exact mechanism that causes the kilometers and kilometers under our feet to generate an earthquake perceptible on the surface? What is meant by earthquake prediction? Why can’t we predict it today? Is this an achievable goal?
What information is available regarding earthquake hazards? Students will talk about this Seismologist at the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV)And Alessandro Amato, At the meeting “Earthquake between science, history and communication“.

Seismology is a relatively young science. Only in the early twentieth century did scientists understand how the Earth’s crust deformed before, during, and after an earthquake, and another fifty years had to pass to elucidate the link between surface tremors and the motions of the lithosphere plates. The road is still long. In the meantime, let us remember that the defense against earthquakes rests primarily with us, that is, on the citizens who have the right to inform researchers and politicians of security; But it is also their duty to ask.

Alessandro Amato, Geologist, PhD in geophysics, director of research at the National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV). The National Seismological Center managed INGV from 2001 to 2007 and in 2012-2013. He was a member of the Major Risks Committee. He studied many Italian and Mediterranean earthquakes and the structure of faults and volcanoes. He coordinated and participated in many national and international research projects, and published dozens of articles in major scientific journals in the sector. Since 2017, he has managed the INGV Tsunami Warning Center. It also deals with the science of communication and the relationship between science and law.

The meeting is part of the course Science in school from Zanecelli. Video meetings with researchers NS Figures of the scientific world For secondary schools and institutes in different Italian regions to tell students and teachers the stories of those who work in the frontiers of research. They are stories that convey our passion for science and provide insights into what we know and what we are about to discover in mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and medicine with particular attention to the goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda.
2030 Agenda It is a program of action for people, planet and prosperity signed in September 2015 by the governments of the 193 member states of the United Nations. Includes 17 Sustainable Development Goals – sustainable development goals sustainable development goals – In a large work program for a total of 169 “goals” or milestones. The official launch of the Sustainable Development Goals coincided with the beginning of 2016, guiding the world on the way forward for the next 15 years: in fact, countries are committed to achieving them by 2030. https://www.unric.org/it/agenda-2030
For more than 160 years of work in school teaching and scientific publishing, Zanichelli Publishing House intends with this initiative to offer students the opportunity to gain knowledge on fascinating topics of close scientific relevance directly from “experts”.
