*Offshore Geophysical Monitoring of Cascadia for Early Warning and 
Hazards Research*

*

Dates: April 3-5, 2017

Location: University of Washington, Seattle


Please join us for a workshop to explore the design, cost, and benefits 
of a real-time offshore geophysical network extending along the trench 
of the Cascadia subduction zone.  The University of Washington is 
hosting a meeting for interested scientists and engineers to discuss the 
scientific and societal motivation for such a system, the geophysical 
requirements, and the merits of alternative engineering approaches 
including submarine cables and emerging technologies. Such a system 
would provide continuous monitoring of the megathrust, enhanced 
earthquake and tsunami early warning capability, and sustained 
observations for scientific study.  The workshop will also explore 
strategies for engaging stakeholders and enabling implementation.


Additional information and meeting logistics can be found online 
(http://cascadia.washington.edu/story/Workshop.html). Applications are 
due Monday, January 16th, 2017. Inquires can be sent to ewoc at uw.edu.


Workshop Organizers: David Schmidt and William Wilcock, University of 
Washington

Workshop Funding:  Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation
