Seismological Society of America Meeting

SSA 2010 Annual Meeting
21–23 April, Portland, Oregon

SSA’s 2010 Annual Meeting will provide a stimulating exchange of research on a wide range of topics with like-minded professionals from all over the world. Oral presentations, poster sessions, exhibits, field trips, business meetings and social gatherings all provide members the opportunity to meet and share with their peers.

Special Sessions:

Advances in Seismic Hazard Mapping

At the Interface Between Earthquake Sciences and Earthquake Engineering in the Pacific Northwest

Building Code Uses of Seismic Hazard Data

Characterizing the Next Cascadia Earthquake and Tsunami

Deterministic Simulated Ground Motion Records under ASCE 7-10 as a Bridge Between Geotechnical and Structural Engineering Industry

Engaging Students and Teachers in Seismology: In Memory of John Lahr

The Evolution of Slow Slip and Tremor in Time and Space

Ground Motion: Observations and Theory    

The January/February 2010 Earthquakes in Haiti, Offshore Northern California, and Chile: Origins, Impacts and Lessons Learned

On January 10 2010, a magnitude 6.5 earthquake ruptured a fault within the Gorda plate off the coast of Northern California, ending 15 years of relative seismic quiescence on California's North Coast and causing over $40 million in losses in Humboldt County. Three days later, a magnitude 7.0 earthquake occurred near Port-au-Prince, Haiti in an event that is likely to be listed as one of the great earthquake catastrophes of all time. We welcome papers addressing the mechanisms and tectonic settings of these earthquakes, the geotechnical factors, strong motion, remote sensing aspects, and direct observations of the earthquake zones including associated deformation, tsunami, landsliding and other evidence, as well as impacts and implications for regional seismic hazards. Addendum- This session will also include papers addressing these aspects of the Chile earthuake.
