Hello all,
  There will be a late breaking session focused on the 8/24/2014 M6.0 South Napa Earthquake at the AGU Fall Meeting. Abstract submission is now open and will close on September 30th, 2014.  This is less than two weeks away, so please don't wait to submit!  Any and all types of work related to this earthquake are encouraged.  Authors may submit one abstract as first author to the late breaking session, in addition to previous regular submissions.

The M6.0 August 24, 2014 South Napa Earthquake
    On August 24, 2014 a magnitude (M) 6.0 earthquake struck south of Napa, California. Damage estimates for this quake could reach $1 billion. This is  the largest earthquake to occur in the populated San Francisco Bay Area since the M6.9 1989 Loma Prieta event. The event was recorded by much more dense and modern network of geophysical sensors compared to previous events. Notably Earthquake Early Warning (EEW) systems provided an alert of imminent shaking in 5 seconds. This session will focus on geophysical and geological studies of the South Napa earthquake including source rupture process, seismological and geodetic observations, EEW, aftershock studies, earthquake geology, seismic hazard, earthquake effects, damage and sociological studies.
