SCEC Community Stress Model (CSM) Workshop

Conveners: Jeanne Hardebeck, Thorsten Becker, Karen Luttrell, Patricia Persaud, and Joann Stock 
Dates: January 15-16, 2019
Location: Kellogg West Conference Center, Pomona, California
SCEC Award and Report: 18132

SUMMARY: At this workshop, we will plan a coordinated research approach to further the development of the SCEC Community Stress Model (CSM).  The CSM has made considerable progress in compiling stress orientation models and stressing rate models for the upper crust, and we will plan how to build on these efforts going forward.  We will focus on five research themes that are key for future progress: (1) physics-based models of stress in the lithosphere, (2) borehole stress indicators, (3) absolute stress, (4) stress heterogeneity, and (5) user needs, model validation, and uncertainty.  Workshop participants will discuss the current status of research on each theme, and identify what is needed to make progress with respect to the CSM.  A small number of invited talks on each theme will be followed by group discussions to identify needs and opportunities.
