(1 more week to register!) November 2019 Pacific Northwest Earthquake Events

Moriarty, Erin Wirth ewirth at usgs.gov
Mon Sep 23 16:20:41 UTC 2019


*Please note that registration closes on October 1st! *

In the last few years, there have been many scientific advances related to
earthquakes in the Pacific Northwest, making some reflection and discussion
of paths forward timely. Toward that end, the USGS PNW Earthquake Hazards
Project and the University of Washington invite you to attend a series of
events November 4-6, 2019 in Seattle:

Monday, Nov. 4, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm PT - Future Strategies for the Cascadia
3-D Velocity Model (max. 25 participants - FULL)
Tuesday, Nov. 5, 9:00 am - 6:00 pm PT - PNW Earthquake Science Workshop
(max. 200 participants; tentative program below)
Wednesday, Nov. 6, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm PT - PNW Post-earthquake Planning
Discussion (max. 35 participants)
Wednesday, Nov. 6, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm PT - A Public Forum on PNW Earthquakes
(max. 300 participants)

All events are free and except for the Public Forum, will be held on the
UW's campus, and require registration. The Public Forum will be at the Town
Hall Seattle (downtown) and no registration is required. To register for
any or all of the events, please fill out the registration form
<https://forms.gle/WJiGiTvDd3TYf3ro9> before October 1st; participation
approvals will be granted in the order of registration receipt. If you feel
it is crucial to attend but cannot do so because of lack of funds, please
let us know by replying to this email with an explanation, noting that the
availability of USGS support is extremely limited and that preference for
funding will be given to students and early career scientists.

Questions or comments may be addressed to Erin Wirth (ewirth at usgs.gov) or
Joan Gomberg (gomberg at usgs.gov). Please pass this announcement along to
others you think may be interested.

Hope to see you in November!
