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!

2009 UCERF3 Planning Meeting

Conveners: Ned Field and the Working Group on California Earthquake Probabilities
Dates: December 1-2, 2009
Location: Kellogg West Conference Center, Pomona, CA

On June 25, 2009 the California Earthquake Authority approved $2 million for the development of UCERF3. The project will likely start on January 1, 2010, and will last for 30 months. Our primary goals with UCERF3 are to include multi-fault ruptures and spatial, temporal clustering. The latter will require robust interoperability with real-time seismicity information, and as such, UCERF3 will bring us into the realm of operational earthquake forecasting.

We will convene for a 2-day planning meeting to (1) review the anticipated model development and (2) survey the community interest in participation, in order to refine the UCERF3 Project Plan.
