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.

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.
