Borderland Working Group

Workshop Announcement
Date: March 8-10, 2002
Location: Wrigley Marine Institute, Two Harbors, Catalina Island, California

The SCEC Continental Borderland Working Group has been formed to explore the scientific goals and data gathering activities associated with Borderland structures, seismicity, seismic hazards, and tectonic history. As part of the first phase of the initiative, a workshop is planned whose objectives are to

  • Plan strategies for interdisciplinary investigations of offshore fault and structural systems in coordination with the USGS marine program, cross-division NSF programs, and other oceanographic activities.
  • Determine long-term and short-term scientific and experimentation goals for SCEC-related Borderland research.
  • Understand what research efforts have already been carried out or are currently underway.
  • Determine the quantity and quality of geophysical data (e.g., reflection, multibeam, core, well log, aeromagnetic, gravity) currently available.
  • Develop support among and include the expertise of potential collaborating institutions and individuals.
  • Examine the need for new or proprietary data in the context of offshore Community fault and velocity models.

The workshop will include informal plenary sessions and breakout discussions. Due to space limitations, attendance will be limited to 50 participants who will be chosen so as to best represent the diverse interests, experience, and potential contributions of the Borderland research community. SCEC will provide funds for participants' 1) roundtrip boat transportation: San Pedro to Two Harbors, 2) meals from lunch on March 8 to lunch on March 10, inclusive, 3) lodging for the nights of March 8 and 9. Detailed registration, travel, and lodging information will be sent once the list of participants has been determined.

The participant list is below.
