Paleoseismology workshop is accepting papers


  • Anonymous


A workshop on paleoseismology will be held September 18–22, 1994, at the Marconi Conference Center at Marshall, Calif., on Tomales Bay north of San Francisco. The workshop is sponsored by Task Group II-3 of the International Lithosphere Program and the U.S. Geological Survey. Topics to be discussed include recognition of paleoearthquakes in the geologic record; Quaternary dating techniques applicable to the precise dating of paleoearthquakes and estimates of fault slip rates; models of earthquake occurrence and fault behavior; and characteristic earthquakes, earthquake clustering, fault segmentation, and slip distribution. A 1-day field trip to trench sites in the Bay Area is planned.
