Deep Science of Subterranean New York City

 

Using his 30 years of active consultation on subsurface geotechnical projects in New York City, Dr. Merguerian will take you to a depth of 800 feet below the hustle and bustle and the towering heights of New York City construction.  In this “quiet environment” we explore  the NYC tunnels and the 1,100 million years of geological history  exposed within them, made possible by mechanized moles (tunnel boring machines), mechanized excavators and traditional drill and blast technology.   Join Dr. Merguerian for this dynamic lecture and learn first-hand just how tunnels are planned and constructed for public benefit in the hard crystalline rocks of New York City and share in the unique “deep science” discoveries made during his investigations in the subterranean world of our metropolis.
