Topics: SSA Meetings
This session is an excellent way to showcase the unique contributions of
your favorite network or earthquake center. The content and participants
will form a foundation for follow-on discussions of opportunities and
needs. *Remember that SSA allows multiple abstract submissions.*

*Description*
Seismic monitoring is a collaborative effort typically carried out
by a broad array of state, university, and federal partners. This
distributed approach provides standardized earthquake analysis while
adapting to the needs of specific regions and stakeholders. Many seismic
networks in the U.S. coordinate through the Advanced National Seismic
System. There are numerous organizations, both long-established and new,
that operate independently. This is the case for most national networks
within the Americas and other regions of the world. This session highlights
the unique observations, opportunities, and adaptations of so-called
regional seismic networks. The purpose of the session is to foster
collaboration and showcase specific regional success stories.
We welcome a wide range of contributions spanning science,
operations, and/or stakeholder engagement, and particularly encourage
submissions based on lesser-known organizations. Examples include but are
in no way limited to: response to major earthquakes, unique tectonic
considerations, non-earthquake sources, industry applications, forensic
seismology, detection and processing workflows, facilities monitoring,
custom products and services, and support for local stakeholders. The only
prerequisites are (i) real-time data and (ii) adaptation to a regional need
or phenomenon. If your hometown network does something you are proud of,
this session is the place to show it off.
