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!

Stress Drop Validation Project Workshop - January 22, 2024 (Zoom) - Register Now!

Date: 01/10/2024

Hello Stress Drop Friends! 
You may now register for the next SCEC/USGS Community Stress Drop Validation workshop which will be held on Zoom Monday January 22, 2024, 9am - 4pm Pacific (with breaks!) here: https://www.scec.org/workshops/2024/stress-drop.
The aim of this workshop is to wrap up this phase of the community study and summarize the findings from the Ridgecrest data, and seek ideas and direction collaboratively for the next challenge for this active community. This workshops will thus truly be a collaborative, working workshop as we discuss what we have learned, what we yet need to understand, and what the next steps will be. Thus we welcome all participants who are interested in stress drop and earthquake source physics, whether they want to actually make measurements or want to use or understand those in their own research. 

Brief Agenda: Monday, January 22, 2024. Pacific Standard Time (PST or UTC-8). 
09:00 - 09:30    Introduction 
09:30 - 11:00    Session 1: Summary of Project, Wrapping Up

14:00 - 14:30    Break 
14:30 - 16:00    Session 3: Looking forward - Designing a Control Experiment using Synthetic seismograms - Short presentations from simulation modelers on their method considering creating synthetics for a controlled experiment of the type. Wrap Up. 
As always, we will dedicate lots of time for discussion, and welcome broad community participation. If you have something to present, please contact Annemarie abaltay@usgs.gov and Rachel rea@bu.edu. 

Looking forward to seeing many of you on January 22!
