Dear Colleagues,

We would like to draw your attention to the SSA 2021 session “Intermountain West Earthquakes in the Spring of 2020”. Please consider submitting here. We welcome geologic, geodetic, and seismological studies on all aspects of these earthquake sequences . Abstracts pertaining to the 24 June 2020 M5.8 Lone Pine, California earthquake are also welcome.

The Intermountain West region of the United States experienced several moderate-to-strong earthquakes in the spring of 2020. The most significant of these were the 18 March 2020 M w 5.7 earthquake north of Magna, Utah (a suburb of Salt Lake City), the 31 March 2020 M w 6.5 earthquake northwest of Stanley, Idaho and the 15 May 2020 M w 6.5 Monte Cristo Range earthquake, northwest of Tonopah, Nevada. This session seeks contributions on all aspects of these earthquake sequences including geologic, geodetic and seismological studies on topics such as earthquake source properties, near-field ground motions, surface rupture, damage assessments, aftershock forecasting, seismic hazard implications and seismotectonics.
