2009 Annual Meeting: SoSAFE Workshop

Dates: September 13, 2009
Organizers: Tom Rockwell, Kate Scharer
Location: Horizon Ballroom, Hilton Palm Springs Resort, Palm Springs, CA

The Southern San Andreas Fault Evaluation (SoSAFE) project is in the final (3rd) year of its initial phase (affectionately referred to as Phase 1). SoSAFE has made significant progress in its first three years towards better defining slip rates and earthquake history of southern San Andreas fault system for the last 2000 years.

This workshop will focus on two primary aspects: 1) summarizing the highlights of SoSAFE for phase 1 in preparation of writing a summary report for the project; and 2) discussing the future direction of the southern San Andreas initiative, potential funding sources in addition to SCEC and the USGS, and discussion of exciting new directions of research. For each group funded by SoSAFE in the past three years, we request a 12-minute presentation with your best stuff, along with a written summary of your group’s work. The initial three years of SoSAFE have been funded primarily by the USGS Multi-Hazards Demonstration Project. As with other workshops tied to the annual meeting, travel and accommodations are covered under the individual PI grants.
