SCEC Workshop: Coordinating Post-Earthquake Field Data Collection (January 12 & 14, 2022)

12 January, 2022 - 14 January, 2022

A SCEC workshop will be held online January 2022 focused on creating a framework to standardize post-earthquake response in four areas: coordination, communication, data collection methodology and data types. This framework will include curation and dissemination of ground deformation observations in ways that improve their usability for earthquake geology, simulations and other modeling activities, as well as Probabilistic Fault Displacement Hazard Analyses (PFDHA). Anyone currently working on, or interested in, post-earthquake studies is encouraged to participate, especially researchers and young investigators with expertise in earthquake geology, geophysics, modeling, and those who collect perishable data to improve engineering practice. We anticipate participants from the broad scientific community (academic, government, private sector).


The workshop will be conducted as a Zoom meeting over two, non-consecutive days (January 12 and 14, 2022 from 09:00-13:00 PST each day). Invited talks will include lessons learned from recent earthquakes, insights from existing data compilations/databases and modeler needs, and an overview of current surface fault rupture data schemas. Discussions during breakout sessions will focus attention on data collection tools, communication and information dissemination, compilation and end-user needs, and remote-sensing support. An outcome of this workshop will be updated guidelines and recommendations for implementing and streamlining the data collection process for surface rupture displacements, with applicability towards other post-earthquake ground deformation collection efforts.
