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!

Community Near-Fault Observatory - Breakout Session
Earthquake Ground Motions Around Faults
Convened by Gail Atkinson and Jamie Steidl

Register: https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJAsc-GtqzwiHdNXqYCSnBwtlYyzs3Jj2h-l 

Geophysical data collected within rupture zones of significant earthquakes are essential for testing and developing further models of earthquake processes. This breakout session is one in a series of sessions intended to gather input from the broader earthquake science community on key research areas, science questions, and the data and experiments needed to address them in the near-fault zone. Please see the attached .pdf for a brief related to this breakout session.
This event will be held in Zoom Meeting format and will feature presentations along with time for Q&A and discussion. A recording will be made available on YouTube after the event. Previous breakout sessions are available here: https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLvd8fqCFf8CWyzfbBuUzOLZS7DcHddj1w. We welcome others to get in touch if they would like to present at or organize a breakout session in the future.
