2022 SCEC Workshop on Fragile Geologic Features (FGF) & PSHA

Conveners: Mark Stirling and Mike Oskin
Date: September 11, 2022 09:00 - 12:30 (Pacific)
Location: Palm Springs Hilton
SCEC Award and Report: 22154

SUMMARY: In the last year fragile geologic features (FGFs) studies have “come of age” through being used to constrain design loadings for a major engineering application in New Zealand. This milestone has been accompanied by key studies of FGFs and PSHA in North America. This workshop provides an opportunity for researchers to discuss the latest work, unresolved issues, and future directions.
