Deborah Weiser Represents SSA at 7th Annual Geosciences Congressional Visits Day

September 19, 2014 – Deborah Weiser of UCLA, recipient of this years GEO-CVD Student Travel Grant, represented SSA at the annual Geosciences Congressional Visits Day (GEO-CVD), September 16–17, in Washington, D.C. Debbie participated in seven meetings on Capitol Hill, including Senator Patty Murray's constituent coffee and meetings with key staff in three Congressional offices (Representatives Rohrabacher, Bass, & Speier) and four Senate offices (Senators Boxer, Feinstein, Murray and Cantwell). Her report on her experience will appear in a future issue of SRL.

GEO-CVD ’14 was a great success, with over 100 individual Hill meetings scheduled for the 40+ participants this year. The overarching message for GEO-CVD is the importance of continued federal investment in geoscience research and development … [Read More]

Cover of SRL 85:5.
[SRL Cover Picture]

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.
