IRIS invites you to attend a webinar on "Earthquake Science at the 
Border Between Real Time Response and Long-Term Research" on August 15, 
2012 from 1-2 pm EDT.

Space for 100 attendees during the webinar is available on a first come, 
first serve basis. If you are interested, please reserve a spot now: 

After registering you will receive a confirmation email containing 
information about joining the webinar. Following the presentation there 
will be the opportunity for questions. Please email Andy Frassetto 
(andyf at iris.edu) with any questions. More information on IRIS research 
webinars, including links to previously recorded presentations, may be

Presenter: Gavin Hayes, National Earthquake Information Center, United 
States Geological Survey

Summary: At the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) National Earthquake 
Information Center (NEIC), our research interests are aligned with the 
identification and application of approaches that help improve the speed 
and accuracy of earthquake response and advance studies of earthquake 
hazard reduction. Over the past several years, this research has 
included the use of the W-Phase and finite fault inversions for 
understanding the earthquake source; the construction of 
three-dimensional slab geometry models for understanding subduction zone 
characteristics; earthquake relocation studies to better image 
aftershock sequences of major events. Such research products also have 
applications beyond their use in rapid earthquake characterization, for 
example, the integration of all of these methods and their results 
provide a more complete understanding of seismogenic and tectonic 
processes than any one method alone can give.

In this webinar I will discuss these research applications: how they 
have developed and have been applied at the NEIC, and how they are being 
used for both real time earthquake response and longer-term research. I 
hope to be able to provide a better understanding of the ongoing science 
conducted at the NEIC, of our interactions with exciting research coming 
from the academic community, and of the integration of both to drive 
improvements in rapid earthquake response and our understanding of the 
earthquake source.
