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)

· Tuesday, Nov. 5, 9:00 am - 6:00 pm PT - PNW Earthquake Science
Workshop (max. 200 participants, tentative agenda 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://docs.google.com/forms/d/1Jtcv9Y9bnWr563HlJsy3XA0I3lILr8kCBWHAc5-Rozs/edit?ts=5d680b39
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!
