Ronald E. Johnson, associate professor of ocean, earth and atmospheric sciences at Old Dominion University, is an authority on movements of the earth's crust, as well as on ocean circulation, waves and tides.

In light of the December tsunami, which caused widespread destruction in coastal areas of the Indian Ocean, he has been in demand as a guest speaker.

On July 7, Johnson spoke to two audiences in Hampton about earthquakes and tsunamis. His first stop was at a colloquium at the NASA Langley Research Center. The second was at The Sigma Series Forum on Science and Technology at the Virginia Air and Space Center.
