*Mendenhall Postdoctoral Opportunity: The relation of earthquake stress drop to source physics and ground motion* We seek a postdoctoral fellow to focus on earthquake stress drops in order to reduce uncertainty in measurements and more fully understand the energetics of earthquake rupture. Stress drop is one of the largest sources of uncertainty in ground-motion prediction equations (GMPEs), and by improving the resolution of stress drops we can reduce the uncertainty in key USGS products ...
