Project Abstract
The January 12, 2023 workshop was related to the SCEC Dynamic Rupture Technical Activity Group. The workshop was convened on zoom. There were 60-participants, about half of whom were early-career. 11 countries and 28 institutions were represented.
Intellectual Merit This group is a long-running vibrant SCEC activity investigating new science about the earthquake source. We computationally simulate large earthquakes and test our codes to make sure the codes are working well, then we use these simulations to advance earthquake science.
Broader Impacts Overall, this group has and continues to serve as an example for how group science activities can be successful, collaborative, and encouraging of scientists at all career stages, while at the same time the individual group members are working at the cutting edge of our science.
Exemplary Figure Figure 1 is our long-time popular figure. If desired, you could instead use a cool, related figure from Ramos et al., SRL, 2022.
