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!

2011 Distribution of Slip in Large Earthquakes UCERF3 Workshop

Conveners: Ned Field and the Working Group on California Earthquake Probabilities
Dates: June 11, 2011
Location: Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach, Oxnard, CA

Summary: This workshop will address the following: a) slip distribution along strike, especially when multiple faults are involved; b) slip distribution down dip and whether larger events penetrate deeper (important for resolving current mag-area discrepancies); and c) theoretical and observational constraints on the propensity for ruptures to jump from one fault to another.
