The SEISMOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF AMERICA (SSA) is an international scientific society devoted to the advancement of seismology and the understanding of earthquakes for the benefit of society. SSA was founded to “promote research in seismology, the scientific investigation of earthquakes and related phenomena, to promote public safety by all practical means, and to enlist the support of the people and the government in the attainment of these ends.”
SSA is the largest society of seismologists in the world. An unbiased source of reliable information for any governmental agency or official seeking sound scientific advice, SSA is the primary forum for the assembly, exchange and dissemination of scientific knowledge essential for an earthquake aware and safer world. In the U.S. we are active participants in the Congressional Hazards Caucus Alliance, the NEHRP Coalition, the USGS Coalition, the Coalition for NSF and the Geo-Policy Working Group.
