Earthquake rocks Canada and U.S.


Queen’s University geology professor Laurent Godin is available to speak about the estimated 5.5 magnitude earthquake that was felt in Ottawa, Toronto, Kingston, Muskoka and Buffalo, NY.

Dr. Godin specializes in structural geology and continental tectonics, with a special focus on the evolution of orogenic belts, namely the Himalayan system. He is particularly interested in field-oriented studies dealing with ductile deformation processes, evolution of crustal-scale shear zones and associated microstructural fabric development, fold/fault relationships, and neotectonic features.
