Join us

When you join our community, you connect with an international network of scientists and engineers who share your passion for seismology.

Get ready to engage with like-minded individuals who care deeply about earthquake science, crustal and deep Earth structures and their applications for building an earthquake-aware world.

Join SSA today and gain access to our Annual Meetings, which bring you shoulder-to-shoulder with members from more than 40 countries around the globe. Stay up-to-date on the latest news in the field through our world-renowned journals and broaden your horizons through our workshops and trainings designed to help you succeed in your career.

The more you participate in SSA’s many offerings, the more chances you will have to meet your future collaborators, research problem solvers, seismological sounding boards—and, as we see quite often, your lifelong friends.

There has never been a better time to join us. We’re rolling out new workshops and webinars on topics like Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Analysis (PSHA) and computational seismology, providing enhanced support for student and early-career members, and creating a strong network of advocates for geosciences—more important now than ever before—through our public policy programs in Washington, D.C.

Join SSA today and connect with others who are on the same wavelength. Only together can we advance the science of seismology.
