> Intermountain West Earthquake and Volcano Characterization and Related Hazards
> This session will address the seismo-volcano processes and related hazards of the Basin-Range Province including Utah, Nevada, Idaho, Montana, and surrounding areas. Specific topics include characterization of physical processes of intraplate lithospheric extension, normal faulting active faulting and seismicity, and volcanism including the large calderas of Long Valley, CA, and Yellowstone National Park. Data from modernized earthquake and GPS monitoring networks and new compilations of Quaternary fault properties provide key information for probabilistic earthquake assessments including block-tectonic models for the next U.S. National Hazard Map. In addition, topics in Basin-Range implementation of dynamic and kinematic models for assessing strong ground motion in fault-adjacent valleys, stress-triggering by earthquakes and volcanoes, liquefaction, and importantly, how seismologists can interact more effectively and provide timely information for emergency management agencies and the public during times of increased activity.
