UCERF3 Workshop: Distribution of Slip in Large Earthquakes

Date: 
Wednesday, March 2, 2011 - Thursday, March 3, 2011
Location: 
USGS Menlo Park, CA

A workshop will be held at the USGS in Menlo Park to discuss Distribution of Slip in Large Earthquakes. The intent of the meeting is to make clear what the issues relevant to UCERF3 are, and to dig into the data relevant to the issues. Participants of this focused workshop will be asked to prepare contributions to the topics of discussion.
