*Abstract:* Long-term probabilistic seismic hazard assessments (PSHA) have
traditionally modeled earthquake occurrence as a stationary,
time-independent process, largely driven by plate tectonic motion. However,
earthquakes can be triggered by other physical processes that act on
shorter time-scales, such as volcanic eruptions/intrusions, natural fluid
flow in the crust, or activities related to energy production, and there is
increasing interest in understanding how PSHA can account for these rate
variations. In this talk, I will summarize some recent studies that
explore ways to improve forecasts when the earthquake rate is varying over
time. These cases will include natural and induced swarms, as well as
caldera collapse earthquakes triggered during the 2018 Kilauea eruption.
