Dear Colleagues,

As the abstract deadline approaches (Jan 11th) for this years annual SSA
meeting in Denver, Colorado, we would like to invite you to submit an
abstract to the special SSA-ESC Joint session on Advances in Geotechnical
Borehole Arrays, Data and Analyses.

In particular we welcome contributions from all aspects of borehole data
analysis, including but not limited to: interferometry, material properties
in the linear and non-linear range, liquefaction, site response,
amplification, and attenuation.

Session Description:
The design objective of geotechnical borehole arrays is to capture
instrumental observations of the earthquake effects associated with the
penultimate event in the region in which the array is deployed. The broader
objective is to capture a suite of earthquakes covering a range of ground
motions and strain levels that include the effects of the near-surface
geology from linear through nonlinear behavior. These observations are the
empirical case histories that are used to validate the constitutive models
in site-specific ground response analysis, providing direct in situ evidence
of soil nonlinearity and liquefaction. Geotechnical borehole array data when
coupled with nearby structural arrays provide insights into
soil-foundation-structure interaction.

This session aims to bring together the Engineering, Seismological, and
Geophysical communities and create a platform for discussion and exchange
concerning borehole arrays, data, and applications. We welcome contributions
from all aspects of borehole data analysis, including, but not limited to:
interferometry, material properties in the linear and non-linear range,
liquefaction, site response, amplification, and attenuation. We encourage
novel and hybrid applications of vertical arrays, including coupled
subsurface-and-superstructure arrays. We also seek to hear from those
installing new arrays, compiling new databases of downhole data, and to
discuss new possibilities for applications.
