2011 Annual Meeting: Source Inversion Validation Workshop

Convener: P. Martin Mai, Morgan Page, and Danijel Schorlemmer
Date: Sunday, September 11, 2011 (08:00 - 12:00)
Location: Hilton Palm Springs Resort

The 2011 Source Inversion Validation (SIV) workshop will focus on the inversion results for the first test inversion problem, which is based on a dynamic rupture for an M ~6.6 strike-slip earthquake, embedded in a layered media. Synthetics at 40 sites are to be used for the inversion, forward-prediction from the obtained model at additional 16 sites are required to help assess the quality and robustness of the solution. Additionally, we will discuss the modelers experience with the SIV-wiki and the newly created benchmarking site in order to streamline the dissemination of future exercises (data and descriptions) and the upload and automated analysis and comparison capacities of the online toolbox.
We hope that many source-modeling teams will present their results and experience with the SIV exercise. However, general contributions on recent developments for source-inversion strategies are welcome as well. We also encourage presentations on finite-fault source studies for recent well-recorded earthquakes that highlight the challenges in kinematic rupture inversions.
