Project Abstract
This workshop combined one day of discussion of uncertainty in fault slip rate and paleoseismicity, followed by a one-day field trip to the southern San Andreas and San Jacinto fault. The workshop was held at the beginning of SCEC3, and this report is submitted several years later to clear the report out of the reporting system.
Intellectual Merit Understanding epistemic uncertainty is key to getting high quality fault slip rates and better constraints on earthquake ages. This workshop helped to advance this goal.
Broader Impacts This workshop drew from a variety of geological expertise, including persons not traditionally associated with SCEC.
