“Geophysical Hazards and Plate Boundary Processes in Central America,

This three-day workshop will bring together seismologists and other
geophysicists from Central America, Mexico, the Caribbean and the
United States to plan and coordinate initiatives that will contribute
to seismological research and seismic hazard mitigation in the
region. The goals of the workshop are to address key scientific
issues that derive from the unique tectonic environment of the region,
to identify concrete steps for strengthening the regional
infrastructure and academic community to facilitate seismological
research, and to initiate efforts toward generating products with
immediate regional societal benefits. The expected outcome of the
workshop will be the creation of a regional research consortium to
sustain these actions.
Given the societal significance of the subject matter, in addition to
participating scientists at various career stages, this workshop will
