CALL FOR PAPERS
Online abstract submissions opened 1 December 2016 and will be accepted until Wednesday, 11 January 2017. Electronic submissions are required. Abstracts may be submitted to a special session or to “No Special Session.” The unassigned papers will be grouped and assigned to a more general session.
Advances in Earthquake Early Warning
Earthquake early warning (EEW) systems provide advance warning of potentially damaging ground shaking and enable the activation of protective actions to prevent or reduce injuries or economic losses. A variety of EEW alert capabilities are in operation or under development in multiple regions of high seismic risk around the world. These vary in complexity from systems that take relatively simple actions based on ground motions exceeding a threshold at a single site to network‐based systems that track an evolving rupture across multiple sensors. All EEW systems must consider: (1) types and quality of available ground motion data (seismic, GNSS, etc.), (2) sensor layout including station distribution, telemetry, and latencies, (3) methodologies for estimating source properties and/or predicting ground motion, (4) communication and use of alerts, and (5) evaluation of system performance. We invite contributions that address all aspects of EEW systems from the theoretical underpinnings to education and outreach efforts.
