Fault Displacement Hazards Workshop, Dec 8-9th, 2016 (and AGU Fall meeting session)

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to bring your attention to a workshop we are organizing on the topic of Fault Displacement Hazard Analysis (FDHA). The Workshop will be held December 8-9th at the U.S. Geological Survey Campus in Menlo Park, CA, and is timed to be the Thursday and Friday before the 2016 AGU Fall meeting so that international participants can plan to attend both the Workshop and AGU the following week.

Workshop themes will include:

– Progress towards a worldwide database of surface rupturing earthquakes for use in Fault Rupture Displacement Analysis.
– Lessons learned from recent surface rupturing earthquakes.
– Case studies and advances in approaches for fault displacement hazard analysis.
– Future directions: Advancing fault rupture and displacement hazard analysis from research topics to the state-of-practice.

Please see the attached flyer for additional information. The agenda is under development, so if you feel you have a contribution, please let us know as soon as possible.

Also we would like to bring your attention to a 2016 Fall Meeting Session that will follow our workshop: “Towards a unified and worldwide database of earthquake surface ruptures”. A link to the session description is here: https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm16/preliminaryview.cgi/Session13523.html

This session is intended to stimulate further interest in the topic of fault rupture hazards, with an emphasis on the catalogue of surface ruptures and how this is applied to fault displacement hazard analysis. Abstracts are due August 3, 2016, so time is running short!

We look forward to hearing from you and how you intend to contribute to this workshop.
