Seismological Research LettersEduQuakes

The EduQuakes column, which debuted in the July/August 1998 issue of SRL, is a flexible and diverse forum for issues and information relating to SSA's ongoing educational mission. The subject matter ranges over all fields of seismology, earthquake engineering, and related fields in public policy. The target audience for the educational material ranges from graduate students, undergraduates, and elementary and secondary school teachers and students to the general public and public officials. In other words, the entire spectrum of SSA activities and all educational levels are appropriate topics. Its format and contents varies among editorial remarks, information snippets, longer articles that focus on particular educational topics, and publication of invited and contributed columns from the seismological community. EduQuakes will take advantage of the growing use of the Web in education and the strong presence of SRL and the SSA in electronic materials. Comments, questions, information, suggestions, and even article contributions can be e-mailed to us at <>.
