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!

2008 Annual Meeting: SoSAFE Workshop

Date: September 7, 2008
Location: Horizon Ballroom 1, Hilton Palm Springs Resort
Convener: Ken Hudnut

The Southern San Andreas Fault Evaluation (SoSAFE) project has made significant progress in its first two years towards better defining slip rates and earthquake history of southern San Andreas fault system for the last 2000 years. This fifth workshop will again review and highlight the latest scientific progress across the range of SoSAFE investigations. As SoSAFE is now two years into a three-year program, funded primarily by the USGS Multi-Hazards Demonstration Project, we will discuss what remains to be done as the top priorities for the final year of major USGS funding. Do we need or want to prolong the life of SoSAFE beyond three years, and if so, what must be done?
