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!

SCEC Proposals, By-Laws, & Reports

The Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) was created as a Science and Technology Center (STC) on February 1, 1991, with joint funding by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U. S. Geological Survey (USGS). SCEC graduated from the STC Program in 2002, and was funded as a stand-alone center under cooperative agreements with both agencies in four consecutive phases, SCEC2 (1 Feb 2002 to 31 Jan 2007), SCEC3 (1 Feb 2007 to 31 Jan 2012), SCEC4 (1 Feb 2012 to 31 Jan 2017), and SCEC5 (1 Feb 2017 to 31 Jan 2022). The By-Laws of the Center are adopted by the Board of Directors for the purpose of conducting SCEC business.
