Project Abstract
With the Ventura SFSA winding down in the next year, the time has come to bring together the most up-to-date and significant results and attempt to form a consensus view of the Ventura fault system and its associated hazards. To this end, we hosted a 1-day workshop on the Saturday before the annual SCEC meeting (9/10) in Palm Springs, CA. Workshop presentations focused on recent findings for the Ventura SFSA in the areas of near-surface and offshore geophysics, crustal struc-ture, geodesy, fault modeling, paleoseismology, tectonic geomorphology, seismology, and dynamic rupture and tsunami modeling. Each topical session consisted of invited oral presentations followed by significant time for constructive discussions.
