Please consider submitting an abstract to the AGU fall meeting's special
session on the recent California earthquakes.

*S041. The 2019 M6.4 Searles Valley and M7.1 Ridgecrest Earthquakes*

*Session link:*

The July 4, 2019 M6.4 Searles Valley and July 6, 2019 M7.1 Ridgecrest
earthquakes ruptured an orthogonal fault system located approximately 200
km north-northeast of Los Angeles, California, with the M7.1 Ridgecrest
earthquake being notable as the largest earthquake in California since the
1999 M7.1 Hector Mine earthquake. The 20 years that have passed since
Hector Mine have brought about enormous improvements in the regional
seismic network and a revolution in geodetic techniques including LiDAR,
new remote sensing platforms, and the expansion of GNSS. Because of this,
the Ridgecrest earthquake will have the densest and most accurate
observations of any M7+ California earthquake in history, including
co-seismic, post-seismic, and even pre-seismic observations collected as
part of the field response to the preceding M6.4 Searles Valley
earthquake. We welcome submissions from all fields of geophysics, geology,
geodesy, and social science exploring these two earthquakes and their
impacts including human impacts.

*Co-sponsoring sections:*
Seismology (primary)
