Overview of UCERF3 Model (& Grand Inversion)

Date: 
Monday, October 24, 2011
Conveners: 
Ned Field
Location: 
PEER Headquarters, University of California, Berkeley

The aim was to give an entire overview of our anticipated UCERF3 model to PSHA and loss-modeling experts, with particular emphasis on the "Grand Inversion" approach to solving for the long-term rate of earthquakes throughout the region. Those interested in details can also read our project plan.
