Please consider submitting an abstract (deadline January 11) to the
following session of the 2012 SSA Annual Meeting (17-19 April 2012, San
Diego)

Advances in Rapid Earthquake and Tsunami Detection and Modeling using
Geodetic and Seismic Data

Experience with the great earthquakes and ensuing tsunamis of the last
decade has shown that traditional seismic monitoring can be greatly improved
in its ability to rapidly estimate accurate earthquake magnitude and fault
slip parameters by the addition of real-time GPS measurements of static and
dynamic seismic deformation. This session focuses on the exploitation of
near-field real-time GPS data alone or in combination with seismic data to
directly estimate displacements with sufficient accuracy to significantly
improve the timeliness of earthquake parameter estimation, thereby also
enhancing tsunami early warning and modeling. We welcome contributions on
earthquake and tsunami early warning approaches for large/great earthquakes,
scaling relationships for estimating earthquake magnitude, rapid centroid
and moment tensor solutions, near-real-time finite fault slip inversions and
tsunami modeling. Also of interest are preparations for monitoring expected
large events in Western North America, including the Cascadia megathrust,
the San Andreas fault, and the Mexican subduction zone.
