On the Cover…
Recent seismic disasters such as the 2009 Mw 6.2 earthquake that struck L’Aquila in central Italy have stimulated interest and new research in short-term forecasting of tectonic earthquakes. Marzocchi et al. describe the first such operational earthquake forecasting system for Italy, which is designed to provide scientific information to various constituents—including the public— for the purpose of reducing short-term seismic risk. The system, which is designed to be open, transparent, reproducible, and testable, meets guidelines of the International Commission on Earthquake Forecasting. SRL’s cover shows an example of a one-week spatial probability forecast for seismic events of M = 4 or greater. Tramelli et al. and Jordan et al. provide related articles.
