On the Cover…
Napa, California, took the brunt of the 24 August 2014 Mw 6.0 South Napa earthquake, which originated at an epicenter just 9 km south-southwest of the city. The recorded peak horizontal ground acceleration in downtown reached 62%g; the event was the largest earthquake to strike northern California since 1985. One person died and approximately 200 were injured; significant damage occurred, including at some of the region’s famed wineries. In this issue, SRL presents a focus section on the Napa event, with papers that cover the seismological, geodetic, geological, and engineering aspects of the earthquake.

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.
