2013 OBS Workshop Highlights

Monday, November 04, 2013

The 2013 OBS Workshop was held in Redondo Beach, CA on October 22-23. There were over 100 participants with a large number of early career scientists and international scientists. The participants came from over 50 colleges and universities. Representatives from governmental agencies and industry companies also attended. 

There were 19 scientific talks, covering a wide range of topics including: active source imaging of the crust, ambient noise analysis, seismotectonics, lithosphere-asthenosphere interactions, sensors and sensor networks, and subduction zone processes. The meeting was enhanced by contributions from international speakers. Seven of the talks were given by international speakers, giving the community an idea of the research and instrumentation developments that are occurring outside of the United States. The poster session was also well attended with 36 participants contributing a poster. 

A Cascadia Initiative mini-workshop workshop was held the day before the OBS Workshop. About 70 scientists showed up a day early, to discuss the current status of the Cascadia Initiative. The topics covered included an overview of the current data availability, current research involving the Cascadia data, and a discussion about how to enhance the scientific return of the experiment. There was also an open forum discussion about where the instruments should be deployed in Year 4 of the experiment. For more information about the Cascadia Initiative, visit the CIET homepage
