Offshore Geophysical Monitoring of Cascadia for Early Warning and
Hazards Research

Workshop 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
