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.
