2002 Annual Meeting

Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach

The Southern California Earthquake Center (SCEC) is funded by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Geological Survey to develop a comprehensive understanding of earthquakes in Southern California and elsewhere, and to communicate useful knowledge for reducing earthquake risk. SCEC coordinates a broad collaboration that builds across disciplines and enables a deeper understanding of system behavior than would be accessible by individual researchers or institutions working alone. At the Annual Meeting members of the community gather to share and get updates on SCEC research projects and activities, as well as plan collaborations for the coming year.

Meeting Program. The 2002 SCEC Annual Meeting, the first for SCEC2, will be held September 8-11 at the Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach in Oxnard, California, site of the last two SCEC1 annual meetings.

In addition to the normal work of planning future activities, we will be increasing the scientific content of the meeting, with evenings set aside for poster sessions/viewing. Posters should be put up on Sunday night. Several pre-meeting workshops will be held on Saturday and/or Sunday, with the main meeting starting on Monday morning and concluding late Wednesday morning.

Meeting Abstracts and Presentations. SCEC’s long-term goal is to understand how seismic hazards change across all time scales of scientific and societal interest, from millennia to second. The collaboration emphasizes the connections between information gathering by sensor networks, fieldwork, and laboratory experiments; knowledge formulation through physics-based, system-level modeling; improved understanding of seismic hazard; and actions to reduce earthquake risk and promote resilience.
