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!

Landers Anniversary Activities and Imagery Collection

Date: 05/09/2022

Dear SCEC Community,

Please see the following request sent on behalf of Sue Hough, USGS Pasadena.


The 30th anniversary of the Landers-Big Bear earthquake sequence is fast approaching!  Plans are afoot to commemorate the occasion with both public-facing events, including a webinar, and a (non-public-facing) 1/2-day tabletop response exercise on June 27.  One goal of the exercise is to strengthen interagency (USGS/SCEC) coordination.

A special session at the 2022 SCEC annual meeting has also been suggested: "30 years of earthquake science."

We also realize that the earthquake is woefully underrepresented in USGS and other public-domain photograph collections. 

If you are interested in participating in the response exercise, or if you have old images or slides gathering dust that you would like preserved in a durable archive, please contact Sue Hough (hough@usgs.gov).

If you are interested in learning more about planned outreach activities, please contact Mark Benthien (benthien@usc.edu) and cc hough@usgs.gov.
