An NSF-funded workshop to engage the seismological research community in development of a Long-Range Science Plan for Seismology (LRSPS) was held in Denver CO, September 18-19, 2008.
A report entitled "Seismological Grand Challenges in Understanding Earth's Dynamic Systems", prepared by the workshop writing group and reviewed by the workshop participants, is now being made available for general commentary at: Long Range Science Plan for Seismology
PASSCAL invites all AGU Fall Meeting attendees to visit the PASSCAL booth in the AGU exhibit hall. Located adjacent to the IRIS booth in the 2300 aisle, this PASSCAL-specific booth provides opportunities for hands-on practice with PASSCAL instrumentation and software.
IRIS PASSCAL sent 10 Rapid Array Mobilization Program (RAMP) seismographs to Southern California to assist faculty and students in evaluating their response plan following a major earthquake in southern California.
