Buying or Building? Have You Considered Geologic Hazards?

Article Author(s): 

Larry D. Fellows

Original Publication Date: 
Sep 2002

In a jargon-free article written for the general public, former Arizona Geological Survey Director Larry Fellows summarizes the nature and societal scope of geologic hazards in Arizona. 


Special Note:

On this, the 125th Anniversary of the Arizona Geological Survey (AZGS), we are celebrating the work of hundreds of geoscientists who struggled to understand and reconstruct Arizona’s geologic past. As part of that celebration, we are dedicating this issue of Arizona Geology to a retrospective display of articles published since the onset of our first formal publication serial, the Bulletin, in 1915. Because Arizona Geology is a vehicle for non-technical articles for a general audience, we largely focused on materials published over the past 42 years as part of our FieldNotes-Arizona Geology newsletter series.
