Exciting news! We're transitioning to the Statewide California Earthquake Center. Our new website is under construction, but we'll continue using this website for SCEC business in the meantime. We're also archiving the Southern Center site to preserve its rich history. A new and improved platform is coming soon!

JFAST Sample Requests

Date: 03/05/2012

Call for requests forwarded from Emily Brodsky, UC Santa Cruz:

Sample requests are being accepted for the JFAST expedition now. JFAST is targetting the near-trench fault zone and is planning on recovering core near the region of extremely large (~50 m) slip. As an IODP project, samples are open to the whole community with priority generally given to shipboard scientists. The ship sets sail April 1. Full expedition details can be read at:


To receive full consideration, please submit your sample request by March 20. We encourage all scientists interested in receiving either data or core samples from this expedition to register on the Sample Material Curation System (SMCS, www.smcs.iodp.org:8080/smcs/) and submit their sample requests as soon as possible. Please contact Sean Toczko with any technical difficulties in submission (sean.jamstec@gmail.com).
