Sitka Nature Show #171 – Rachel Lauer

Download Radio Show

The November 11th show featured a conversation with Rachel Lauer, a marine hydrogeologist who was in town as part of the Scientist in Residence Fellowship at the Sitka Sound Science Center. We spoke about her work investigating the plumbing systems of the sea floor and how water moves around and through faults deep under the ocean surface. She has recently started working with others to study the Queen Charlotte fault which runs offshore of British Columbia and Southeast Alaska.

If you’re interested in other conversations that touched on the Queen Charlotte fault, you can check out past shows with Emily Roland, Sue Karl Part 1, and Sue Karl Part 2
