On the Cover…
An overview of broadband platform ground-motion simulation is the subject of this issue’s focus section and cover graphic. A rupture generator produces a slip-time history, then low-frequency ground-motion simulation produces a 1 Hz ground-motion time series, followed by a high-frequency simulation that produces a 10 Hz+ time series. In postprocessing, time series are converted to peak pseudospectral acceleration at different periods; then verification and validation processing compares observed ground motions against simulated ground motions as a frequency-dependent bias plot. If the simulation perfectly reproduced the observations, the average bias for all stations (red line) would overlay the zero bias (horizontal center line) across all periods.

Table of Contents
Seismological Research Letters

The bimonthly Seismological Research Letters serves as a general forum for informal communication among seismologists, as well as between seismologists and those nonspecialists interested in seismology and related disciplines. The contents of SRL include contributed articles on topics of broad seismological interest, opinion pieces on current seismological topics, News and Notes about seismology in the U.S. and internationally, Transitions notes about seismologists, special earthquake reports, and letters to the editor.

"The Electronic Seismologist" is one of SRL's most popular columns. Many readers find its information on data exchange, the World Wide Web, and bulletin boards containing seismological information necessary reading. "EduQuakes" aims to provide a forum for the ongoing educational mission of the Seismological Society.

SRL prides itself on its ability to disseminate information quickly. For example, articles with preliminary reports about recent earthquakes of major public interest have appeared in as little as two months after the occurrences of the events. In summary, SRL is an excellent tool for keeping current on developments in earthquake seismology.
